Entenmann’s Raspberry Danish Twist. (Philip Klein )


In response to Top 10 Entenmann’s Desserts — Definitive Ranking

Phil, this is a solid ranking in honor of the late Charles E. Entenmann, but you can’t please all the people all the time, and count me among them. You rank Raspberry Danish Twist as No. 6, which seems miserably low for such a superior baked good. It deserves top billing, IMHO (the “H” is for hungry).

You also raise this point:

This is a really great dessert option that could double as a breakfast food if you’re under 25, or just feeling decadent . . .

We can remove the caveats, I think. If there’s one convention that America has dispensed with, it’s the idea that breakfast isn’t just a continuation of dessert from the night before.

At Denny’s right now in this country, a current “to-go fave” is something called the “Cinnamon Roll Pancake Breakfast,” which is listed next to something else called the “Get That Cookie Dough Pancake Breakfast.” I’d say the only difference between that and dessert is the bacon, but bacon is a ubiquitous cake topping these days.

So: Raspberry Danish Twist, a really good dessert option that will necessarily also be breakfast for most everyone who buys it.

’Merica.
