From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kringle was proposed for deletion. This page is an archive of the discussion about the proposed deletion. This page is no longer live. Further comments should be made on the article's talk page rather than here so that this page is preserved as an historic record. The result of the debate was KEEP

I smelled not flaky golden pastry with delicious gourmet fillings, but advertising. At the same time, for all I know, kringles are quite real; but I'm in a bad mood so NPOV'd the text as much as I could and simultaneously offered it to your deleting pleasure; maybe instead I'll learn something. Better safe than sorry, though. — Bill 21:25, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)

  • Keep. Seems to be a legitimate pastry: [1] [2] [3] The first Google hit for "kringle pastry" is a non-advertisement recipe: [4] You were right to make it read less like an ad, though. Odd-looking thing, but sounds pretty tasty.Garrett Albright 21:33, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete, recipes/description of food in and of itself are not, IMO, encyclopedic. Something must show that it is notable or is special because of something. Hundreds of thousands of different types of food is out there, one is not more notable than the other. -Vina 21:35, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep: doesn't fulfil any of the criteria for deletion.--Tomheaton 21:37, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. recipes/description of food in and of itself are , IMO, encyclopedic. YMMV --Tagishsimon
  • Keep. Interesting, encyclopedic, and lots of room for growth. Andrewa 23:43, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep but needs to be toned down even further. Either the link needs to be removed or others need to be added. Borderline notability, I think. My wife grew up in (southwest) Wisconsin and never heard of them. I spent ten years at University of Wisconsin in Madison and never heard of them. I suspect they really are limited to the Racine area. [[User:Dpbsmith|Dpbsmith (talk)]] 00:02, 12 Oct 2004 (UTC)
    • Couldn't just be limited to Racine, I've eaten them in Illinois. - RedWordSmith 01:10, 12 Oct 2004 (UTC)
    • Comment: Three independent shops near my home in Sydney make them, see the talk page. Andrewa 01:13, 12 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Kinda thought so, I learned something. (I'm on the side of "Food is inherently encyclopedic", by the way.) Withdraw motion to delete. Comment: the apparent fact that they may be peculiar to a very small area makes them more notable, not less.... but would agree with DpbSmith, we can add two or three more producers of them and zero out the promo factor. I live in Chicager and have been to Racine, always on the alert for interesting food, never heard of them; more fool me! — Bill 01:16, 12 Oct 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete. Food is not notable. --Improv 03:39, 12 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep - Food is an important part of a cultural tradition and thus encyclopedic providing it isn't merely a recipe. Capitalistroadster 08:27, 12 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep But remove the link. Perhaps the page can be fleshed out with a pic / more info. hiadam 04:38, 13 Oct 2004 (UTC)
