The mystery of Danish Butter Cookies

The Royal Dansk Danish Butter Cookie in Denmark

I’ve noticed that ScandiAsia’s audience are quiet international, which is SO awesome.  😀

I think almost, each country have a   ‘product – souvenir, food, etc etc’ that somehow very popular outside of your country, but you don’t really see them _in_ your country??

For example I was surprised to see Cup Noodles Tomato soup flavor in Denmark! I had never seen that in Japan.
Cup Noodles’s popular flavors are Curry, SeaFood, and Original.

Apparently some products are only targeted for certain areas.

Speaking of Cup Noodles, If you’re in Yokohama visit their museum.
Looks fun  😀

I am not sure if The Royal Dansk Butter Cookie is targeted outside of Denmark?

My friends say they do sell in Denmark…. mystery. Maybe I just need to look better.

What is your country’s product that are popular outside of your country –  but you don’t see inland??

    I think the reason why you can’t find them is that they’re slowly going out of fashion. They were EVERYWHERE when I was a kid, but now that you mention it, it’s been a while since I’ve seen them in a normal supermarket.
    These days, I think Danish people prefer cookies that are less dry 😛

    You can still find them in tourist-catering shops near Strøget in Copenhagen 😉

      Hi Nadia! Indeed tread does change, doesn’t it? My friend also found it at the airport too – it’s “the” Danish souvenir 🙂

    They’re sold in a cheap package in the supermarkets – the blue tin box i usually seen in the air port (where it is incredible expensive ;)).
