During my trip to Norway in February I ate more cinnamon buns in one week than I'd eaten in all my life before then. Why? They weren't ooey, gooey, frosting-laden behemoths. The buns were frosting-less and just sweet enough, a nice snackable pastry for any time of the day. And snack, I did. Here's some more info about Norwegian cinnamon buns, plus a recipe.

To most of the world, Kvikk Lunsj, one of Norway's most popular and iconic chocolate bars from Freia, one of Norway's oldest chocolate companies, may not seem like anything special. At least, not anything unique. It looks just like a Kit Kat bar—a Kit Kat bar with the more utilitarian name "quick lunch," a role fulfilled by 250 calories of chocolate-covered wafers. But to Norwegians, the chocolate bar has another meaning: Hiking. Trekking. Skiing. Being active outdoors.
