Scandinavian Bakery or Restaurant NJ?

Looking for a specific pastry called Kringle - Are there any scandinavian Bakeries that anyone knows of in NJ? Thanks much.

    How about Ikea ? :-)

      I do love the market at IKea and they have expanded it.
      My favorite treat is the Gingerbread Toffee aka Sockerbageriet Pepparkakskola - LOL

      I don't think they have Kringle but I will give them a call. Thanks for thinking.

        It's a bit of a haul but you might try Danish Bakers in Rutledge, PA. This bakery is mentioned a couple of times on the PA board. Suggest you phone them before driving half way towards Philadelphia.

        Of course you could always order kringle on-line. One place I know of is O&H Bakery in Racine, WI:

        Finally, you should also set aside September 6 for the ScanFest (Scandinavian Festival) in Budd Lake, NJ. Lots of food vendors there. If you can't wait until September, the ScanFest web site lists many of these vendors, some of whom are in NJ. You could phone these to see if they have kringle or know where you can get it.

            You are very welcome. Just came across the following web link from 2005 that lists places which make and sell great kringle. Glad to see that O&H Bakery made the cut!

            I don't know if the other places ship kringle. Didn't check to see if they have web sites but you can pursue on your own.

            There's a Scan Fest on the Douglas campus as well and a 17th May Norwegian festival in Nj as well. A Scandinavian Bakery in Brooklyn ships.

            There used to be the Viking Bakery in Denville. I have no idea if it is still there.
