Kim & Scott’s Gluten-Free Gourmet Pretzels

By | Jun 8, 2011

Kim & Scotts Gluten-Free Pretzels boxI grew up in New York and now live in Philly, two places known for their soft pretzels. Unfortunately, gluten-free soft pretzels aren’t as abundant as their crunchy counterparts. And when you’re hungering for a doughy, mustard-covered twist, even the best gluten-free pretzel sticks won’t cut it.

Kim & Scott’s, a traditional soft pretzel maker, must have heard the call. The company announced its new Gluten-Free Pretzel a few months ago, and I was lucky enough to get a sample.

The pretzels arrived 2 in a box, slightly thawed from the shipment process. I put one to the side and tossed the rest in the freezer for future snacking.

The pretzel was easy to make: simply zap it in the microwave for about 40 seconds, and enjoy. There was even a packet of salt crystals to sprinkle on top. As someone who’s not a big fan of salt, I was happy the pretzels didn’t come pre-loaded.

Kim & Scotts gluten-free pretzelMy pretzel was warm and chewy, with a golden appearance and slightly baked flavor, which I’m sure would be even more enhanced if I went the conventional oven route. There wasn’t a crumble or flake in sight, and it stood up well to a dip in my favorite mustard. The pretzel did get hard as it cooled, so I recommend eating swiftly rather than savoring the twist for too long.

According to a representative from Kim & Scott’s, this is the just the start of their foray into gluten-free. The company plans to expand its gluten-free line to include more pretzel varieties. Kim & Scott’s retail location, Café Twist, is also making gluten-free pretzel sandwiches, with a designated station for gluten-free food prep.

    I have been searching for Kim and Scott’s GF pretzels for almost a year. I contacted all the stores listed on their website in NY and CT and they do not carry them. I asked if they could order me a case and the answer is no that the disributor doesn’t have them in this region. I tried to contact K and S directly and they will not sell them to an individual. Any suggestions???

    My son and I have Celiacs and pretzels are the one thing that we CRAVE!

    Hi Susan. I’m sorry you’re having trouble finding the pretzels! You might want to check out Tonya’s Gluten-Free Kitchen. The company makes a line of soft gluten-free pretzels, and they have been a hit at our gluten-free fundraiser, Appetite for Awareness. You can order straight from their site: http://www.tonyasglutenfree.com/categories/Pretzels/
