I have heard about this for years and years but never tried it. Is it available at all Busken Bakeries?

As I made my deliveries last night, I saw two Buskin Bakeries billboards; "Thanksgiving is Schnecken up on us", with an inviting photo of said Schnecken. VERY nice! I'd assume all Buskins have 'em...

I went past the Busken Bakery in Mason last Saturday and the sign in the window said they had Schnekens.

Thanks Crew Chief and rrtechno for your replies. I'll have to get out to Busken and try this treat that I have heard so much about.

Thanks, rrtechno! I can see swinging by the Mason Buskins after the meet-up to bring home a couple of Schnecken for afternoon coffee so my wife and I will be back in Germany for a bit!

You're welcome Crew Chief. That's the closest I can get to the meet-up this morning. Hope you had a good time.

Wow, the "holiday season" starts earlier all the time. Decorated wreaths go up outside stores as soon as Halloween candy gets put away - and now you can buy schnecken before Thanksgiving Later for "good things come to those who wait," though. Now I know I'll be demanding a Busken run on Black Friday while I'm in town for T Day. I can already taste slices of that sugar bomb washed down with cold milk
I took a call at my job from a newly settling Cincinnatian on Friday, and spread the schnecken gospel after tackling the issue at hand. So if the line at the Madison/Edwards Busken is longer by a family next weekend I've only myself to blame! (Word to the wise: you can phone ahead and reserve some of those bricks of sweetness to pick up later.)

The real deal was available yesterday at Shadeau. Bill said he would have it available on Tues and Wed. But no guaranties. 3 or 4 would sell them out at Shadeau because they are not made in a factory.

Great, Goyguy! I've been searching for VB-style schnecken for a while now. I hear that, come autumn, Graeter's gives it a shot. Also heard that Shadeau Bakery takes a stab at it. Have you tested those? How do they compared with Busken's?

Don't know I can identify a schnecken. But it seems to be in the same class as the old Excel bakery downtown's tea ring. When my mother took me downtown as a boy the day was not complete until we stopped by the Excel bakery and purchased tea ring. Another memory of my youth was a Christmas Stollen. Been years since I have anything like what I remember.
