Salty, Sweet, Sublime

The pretzels from Fatty Sundays have a twist -- but not the loopy, knotted kind of twist that other pretzels have. Fatty Sundays’ twist is a chocolate and candy dip that adds a sweet topcoat to salty pretzel rods. Sisters Ali and Lauren Borowick are the founders of Fatty Sundays. The family business got its name from the Borowick’s tradition of kicking back, relaxing and indulging on Sundays. Everyone pitched in to launch the company: Graphic designer Ali created the brand, Lauren wrote the business plan, and lawyer Risa ironed out the legal details, while the siblings’ parents helped perfect the pretzel recipes and crunch the numbers. Fatty Sundays’ colorful confections are bursting with flavor. The pretzels are made in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens, N.Y., where they’re hand dipped in chocolate then coated with toppings such as toffee crunch, berry granola, and toasted coconut. Each bite delivers the perfect blend of creamy chocolate, crunchy toppings, and rustic pretzel. It’s easy to imagine noshing on these decadent treats on a lazy Sunday afternoon … or, let’s be honest, every day of the week.

    Hi Lin,

    I'm not familiar with the benefits or detriments of palm oil myself, but Ali will be along shortly and I'm sure she'll address her reasoning behind this choice.

    @ Lin As a young, new business we do not yet bake our own pretzels. In the future we will take this into consideration when we do get to that point. Thanks for checking us out!

    Not only is palm kernel oil not healthy it is an environmental detriment as it causes habitat loss and deforestation in the regions where it is grown.

    @ Suzanne & Lin, excuse me naysayers, but you need to update your info. Palm oil and palm kernel oil are only considered unhealthy by those who haven't kept up with the times. Secondly, the palm oil industry has updated it's methods and is now considered an eco-friendly industry.

    Ms Borowick, congrats to you and your family for getting a business up and running. I will keep your product in mind for future gifts. Good Luck!
