I drove 2000 miles for a Kringle.

Actually, it wasn’t really 2000 miles from home, only 1989 miles (but who's counting?).

On a recent trip, I had the chance to stop in Green Bay, Wisconsin. While visiting I was lucky enough to stop at Uncle Mike’s Bake Shoppe.

Uncle Mike’s is a popular bakery that is known for its luscious, award-winning Kringles.

Kringle is a Scandinavian pastry, a sort of Nordic variety of a pretzel. History tells us that it was brought to Scandinavia by Roman Catholic monks in the 13th century. It is especially popular in Denmark. Over time it developed into several kinds of sweet, salty or filled pastries. Kringles can be found in all sizes, flavors, and many different shapes.

When you visit Mike’s you have the chance to taste more than a dozen different varieties including Apple, Strawberry, Pecan, Turtle and my personal favorite, Carmel Pecan Sea Salt.

Truth be told I go there for the free samples of pastries and freshly baked bread. But then I usually feel guilty and buy something.

On this day I was able to secure a half-Kringle. A freshly baked Award-Winning Carmel Pecan Sea Salt.

Mike’s is also known for their fresh-baked bread which are equally delicious as the pastries. Although at $5 a loaf it better be good.

If you are ever in Green Bay and your sweet tooth is acting up. Stop in and try the free samples. You may even buy something to bring home.

By the way, the Kringle was yummy.

Hi Joseph- so will you have to wait until you go through Green Bay to get another Kringle???    We have a place in Houston called Shipley's DoNuts...they melt in your mouth.

Joseph, I do know Kringles, not to be confused with Kransekake.  And the pic looks delish....

BUT have you checked out the mail order pricing on their website?  Shipped to my zone, $375.38 for 12 Kringle.  Does 1 Kringle feed 5?  LOL.  Seriously it's the freshness + the goodness the customer is paying for.  Uncle Mike's is a keeper.

I traveled 3000 miles to visit a Piggly Wiggley.  Actually, I was in the Carolinas doing other sight seeing, and found one in Myrtle Beach that I just had to see.
