Off The Wall Gifts, the coordinator of gift bags for The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, provides thousands of gift bags for Emmy attendees, and plans on including undiscovered emerging brands this award season.

One of the shining stars Wilson is excited about is "Mom's Originals Gourmet Pretzels", a Mother/Daughter business out of St. Louis, Missouri. Not only are their pretzels amazing, said Wilson, their story is just as fun. Jody “Mom” has a unique knack for making the most delicious gourmet pretzels and “daughter” Taran has the marketing skills & salesmanship, which makes for a perfect combination for this Women Owned Business, Mom's Originals, Inc.

As a preferred vendor of Major League Baseball and in the Suites of their hometown Cardinals Stadium, Mom’s Originals is already making their mark in the sporting world. "They are a welcome addition to this year's Sports Bag", adds Mike Liston, co-owner of Off The Wall. "Dressing up a pretzel in a gourmet fashion is perfect for an Emmy Award Show!"

The ceremony is being held on April 26th, 2010 at Rose Hall, in Lincoln Center, New York City. An Estimated 900 guests are expected and each will depart with an Official Emmy Gift Bag filled with unique products, hand-picked by the producers at Off The Wall.

NFL Legend John Madden will be receiving the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award this year, and The Academy is expecting to have a very strong NFL showing. Pretzels and food gifts work well with this audience. www.emmyonline.org/sports

Mom was in attendance at this year’s Sports Emmy Awards in New York’s Lincoln Center – Mom's Originals Gourmet Pretzels, that is.

St. Louis’-own prolific pretzel-maker was selected to be one of the items included in the official Emmy gift bag that was distributed to all 900 attendees. The ceremony, held Monday April 26, included a presentation of the 2010 Lifetime Achievement Award to legendary NFL coach and broadcaster John Madden (Vegas odds makers are betting 100 to 1 that Madden had already devoured his gourmet pretzel by press time.)

For goodness sakes, call your mother – or at least click on www.momsoriginals.com.

St. Louis’ own Mom’s Originals Gourmet Pretzels were among the goodies in the gift bags handed out April 26 at the 31st annual Sports Emmy Awards at Lincoln Center in New York. Jody Hensley and daughter Taran Hensley started the company in 2008 at the urging of friends and family, who loved mom’s pretzels, which are hand-wrapped in soft caramel and coated in chocolates and nuts. Yumm.
