Kim & Scott’s Gourmet Pretzels(R) Introduces Its Stuffed Spinach Feta Pretzel With Flax at Natural Products Expo East

NEW YORK, Sept. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Kim & Scott's Gourmet Pretzels(R) introduces its Stuffed Spinach Feta Pretzel with Flax for retail (in a frozen 4-pack) and wholesale at the 2007 Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore (Booth 2846). The savory soft pretzel, made with the fresh ingredients of Mediterranean cuisine including organic whole grains, healthful fresh chopped spinach, crumbles of feta cheese and a touch of garlic and spices, makes this pretzel the perfect meal or snack for the entire family.

Spinach, a "super-food" rich in nutrients and low in calories gets an extra boost from the 1.5g of ALA Omega-3's per serving in this pretzel. "What we love about this pretzel is that it is an incredibly easy way to get even the pickiest eaters in your home to get all the amazing benefits from eating spinach," says company chief operating officer, Scott Holstein. "Like all of our pretzels, we use all-natural ingredients and hand-twist each pretzel in our Chicago bakery."

The launch of the Stuffed Spinach Feta Pretzel with Flax marks Kim & Scott's seventh product to be available in grocers' freezers throughout the country. Others include: Chocolate Crumb, Apple Cinnamon, Stuffed Pizza Pretzel(TM), Sourdough Parmesan, Stuffed Grilled Cheese Pretzel(TM) and Traditional Bavarian.
