Racine WI- It's all about the Kringle's

Alright, time for a thread on a Wisconsin unique & speciality danish, who really makes the best one? Here are three I've tried and liked:

- Larson:
- O&H:
- Racine Danish Kringles:

If you don't know what a Kringle is here is good like with some history:

If sadly you have never experienced this bakers delight, then I would recommend you do, or go to Racine and give it a try at one of the several danish bakery & coffee shops they have.

I recently saw a Road Tasted show where the Dean brothers went to Milwaukee for Kringle, wrong- duh! And then misinformed the world that the Kringle was only available from this one Milwaukee bakery, so they were completely oblivious to the fact that the Kringle is really a Racine speciality with many local bakers who produce this wonderful delight.

        1. This topic comes up every so often. Each person has their favorite. Mine is Bendsted's Bakery. The pecan is outstanding.

          1. I spend several weekends a year visiting my children in Kenosha. Do you have any recs just south of Racine although if not I will make that long juorney north?
