"Kringle Heaven" Racine by yooperprof
Racine Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 39 photos
If you like gooey-sticky-sweet pastry, Racine is where you want to be. It is the North American home of the Kringle, a super-Danish pastry that is guaranteed to delight the sweet tooth.
How many places still have a particular food item that is deeply associated with that area? Philly has Cheese Steak, Chicago has deep dish pizza, the upper peninsula of Michigan has the pasty, and Racine has the Kringle.
Although the basic Kringle is essentially pastry with glazed sugar, they come in many varieties. Pictured here are the Date Pecan and Blueberry Cheese Kringles.
I photographed these Kringles at Bendtsen's Bakery and Cafe, which is on State Route 20 leading into town.
