Eat this now: O & H Brandy Old Fashioned Kringle
Kringle and brandy Old Fashioneds are two of my favorite Wisconsin things. So when I heard that the Racine-based O & H Bakery – a kringle champion in my book – released a special version combining the two, I had to try it right away.
The Danish kringle is literally layer upon layer of butter – up to 36 layers! – so adding booze to it could only make it more magical, right?
After grabbing one this morning, we put it to a taste test this afternoon.
The results? After much deliberation, we determined there is a unique art to eating this delicious concoction. While you would typically eat Kringle from the inside oval out, this piece of delectable art requires a new approach. To fully taste the distinctly Wisconsin flavor of brandy Old Fashioned, skinny strips are the best tactic. Your taste buds will get a hint of brandy, caramel and cherries plus a finish of vanilla icing and a touch of orange zest.
OnMilwaukee's Andy Tarnoff demonstrates it here:
Get your hands on one of these soon, Milwaukee. Unfortunately the closest O & H is Oak Creek, but it is well worth the 10-minute ride. Unless I buy them all first.
