Kelloggs Danish Go Rounds
- Mike Cecere
I can remember them when I was a child (born in 1964.) They were similar to Pop Tarts, only much better. They were swirled in an elliptical path from the center. My favorite was cinnamon.
Any body see them anywhere in the USA? They are not here in New Jersey.
These seemed to disappear abruptly around 1970, and were never heard from again. I was mmystified that they went out and not Pop-tsrts, because to my childhood tastebuds, they were better; if I were to taste them again, though, I rather doubt they'd be the Rosebud I remember. I know I have the remains of a box of Quisp still sitting on my shelf (sorry, Jim), and it will probably never be eaten, except by these annoying weevils I get in my dry goods unless I put all my flour and stuff I intend to keep for longer tham a few months into glass jars. But that's another story.

The things you can find on the Internet. I went to the Kelloggs home page and found this in the FAQ.
What happened to Kellogg's® Danish Go Rounds® and Kellogg's® Danish Rings® -- do you still sell them?
Danish Go Rounds were introduced in 1968. They were an extruded rope of dough with fruit filling in the middle, wrapped to form an oval. The dough was very similar to our current Kellogg's® Pop-Tarts® Toaster Pastries. Because of the way they were made, they broke or crumbled easily, and were replaced in 1976 by Danish Rings.
Danish Rings had a flakier pastry with fruit filling, and stamped in an oval shape. Unfortunately, they never caught on! Consumers much preferred Kellogg's® Pop-Tarts®, so Danish Rings were discontinued in 1980.
I remember them fondly as well but can't find anyone else who remembers them. They came four to a box and the pastry was better than Pop Tarts.

Hi- to all of you that love Kellogg's Danish Go rounds . I am 43 yrs old & I love them as well & want them to come back.
I e-mail Kelloggs probably every couple of years to tell them to bring back the Danish go rounds, I get the same excuses how easy they broke bla, bla, bla. Or there wasnt enough consumer interest.....fooey!
I want to encourage all of you out there to e-mail kelloggs, flood them with your e-mails tell them how you would like to see them to come back on the shelf, they seem to over kill on their pop-tart flavors.
I was so happy when I found this thread, I could have cried. For years, I've been telling people about the breakfast treat that I remembered as a kid. I'd decided that I imagined them and that I'd made up the name Danish Go-Rounds. I'm so happy to know they were real and that other people remember them as better than Pop-Tarts. C'mon Kellogs, bring 'em back!
I am so thrilled that there are others out there like me... Thank you DrLisaKay. As you can see no ones been on here for quite sometime. I don't know what the deal is with companies, you find a product you like and then it gets discontinued. I cant imagine with all the poptarts flavors out there that they are all good sellers...there is no way, I look at those flavors & think "YUCK! How can that be still on the shelf"? Danish go rounds were the best...Kelloggs need to give it another shot.
Yes Lisa, I tried telling my mom about them, and if she remembered them or not, "she didn't. When I was a kid living in Florida, I remember eating them," I think it was either, Strawberry, or Cherry, anyway I remember the frosting on the outside was to die for, then, the filling on the inside sealed the deal, "Heaven on your tastebuds!", well as a kid they were anyway to me. Now to find this post, and see people with the same likes as me, makes me think of how I want things the way they were when I was a child again.
