This is an advertisement from our local Shell Station in Herning. It is really a pretty good offer-- 8 rundstykker (breakfast buns) and 4 wienerbrød for 45 kroner (about 9 dollars). But that is not why the sign caught my eye this week. Look at the picture of the "wienerbrød" and tell me what you would call that?! I think every American would agree....we call that a DANISH! You know, that breakfast food that comes from DENMARK! You can get cream cheese Danishes, jelly Danishes, basically any kind of Danish you can imagine! But if the Danes themselves don't even call it a Danish, where on earth did we get that name from? Yes, technically "Wienerbrød" translates to "Danish", but you gotta wonder..... why do they call it something different? And did the Danes even really create it as we Americans have always believed that they did?
