Wisconsin is home to a variety of delicious foods, from crispy fried cheese curds and sausages to indulgent butter burgers. But among the foods with the most storied histories is a Danish treat with a special Wisconsin twist: kringle.
Kringle fans rejoice! The new holiday flavor debut arrives today from O&H Danish Bakery. And at the same time, last year's gem - egg nog kringle - is back, too.
As a longtime fan of the hazelnut - when I bought my house nearly 20 years ago, one of the first things I did was plant a hazelnut bush in the backyard - I'm excited to finally find this native Wisconsin plant represented in more foods than ever.

Eggnog + kringle? Count me in!
