Bought a DAK ham and some Tuborg last night. We already have enough Legos to make a wall visible from space.

Damn, BayEagle. I dropped my Col Kong cause yours put him in the shade. Now your Dannebrog is kicking my ass.

I will drink nothing but Tuborg until the people of Denmark are free from Muslim oppression.

That's as good of an excuse as any.

Just bought some Danish butter and cheese this last weekend. By the way, a few years ago I bought some surplus danish 9mm. Best milsurp ammo ever, I swear the stuff is match grade..

DK-Prof: Are we at AR15.com the only ones making the effort to buy Danish products or is this a much wider movement?

I've heard that there is a wide movement, through various blogs, etc.


Hopefully there's a big list somewhere of Danish goods. Apart from the cheeses, baby back ribs, hams, bacon and beers, there are a bunch of other products.

While the traditional danish hard alcohol is called Akvavit - and is a potato-based vodka-like drink, infused with all kinds of secret herbs (it's really quite good) - Danmark also makes pretty good regular vodka these days. The BEST one is Friis, which is distilled something like six times, but there are a few other vodkas.

In terms of more durable goods, unfortunately Danish stuff tends to be pricey and specilalized. If you are looking for fashionable audio equipment, then Band & Olufsen (B&O) are very snazzy. If you need porcelain, then some of the finest hand-painted china is made in Denmark (by Royal Copenhagen). They range from basic styles - like blue flowere, mega and plain fluted, to expensive, like full lace fluted, to insanely expensive, like the Flora Danica pattern, where a single plate costs about $700. If you need silverware to go with that the Danish silversmith company Georg Jensen makes very fine silver as well.

Denmark also makes all kind of obscure products in small niche markets, like electronics, fashion, style, furs, etc.

Danish candy is actually really good, but is not exported very much - much to my dismay (but good for my waistline)

You can never have too much Kong. This board needs more Kong!

As i was not already drinking enough Carlsberg...

Best hang-over I ever had was from Carlsberg Elelphant in Copehagen, 1978...some Pernot may have been involved as well.

We always take the ferry from Norway to Denmark for free market shoping trips.

Kinda hard for a Norseman to say "Go Danes" but this all makes it worthwhile...

I just heard on the radio that Denmark produces about half of the world supply of insulin-the middle east really needs to step up their boycott!

+1 while munching on DAK ham.

I might even send one to the President of Iran.

Well, 1 Dak ham and a tin of Danish butter cookies on the way
Link Posted: 2/7/2006 2:09:05 PM EDT
I'm of Danish ancestry, so I've got a head start on this:

Dansko clogs on my feet.
Akavit in my freezer.
Carlsberg in the fridge.
Butter cookies in the cabinet.
Legos for my son.
Dansk glassware for my wine.

My parents also have a sweet set of Royal Copenhagen dishes, plus some fine silverware that was supposedly used by Queen Margrethe at some point.

No one around here local stocks them. Where is the best place to buy a "no refriDgeration needed" Danish canned ham? Lower price is better.

What about the Danish porno? I've seen all kinds of Danish products listed from toilet seats to bacon, but not a single porn product. You used be _the_ source for porno in all of North-Europe a couple of decades ago, what happened? No, I'm not interessed in 6 seasons of "Strippekongens Piger".

I'll be keeping an eye out to buy Danish products .

Sweet !!

I have most of my parents' set of Royal Copenhagen china - and a lot of Akvavit in the freezer, but unfortunately I had to leave all my legos in Denmark when I moved here.
