The "Danish" made in the US bears little resemblance to the "weinerbroed" made here.
I believe the reason they are called "danish" in the US dates back to the immigration times (1800's and early 1900's) Danes immigrated and brought their foods with them. These proved popular, but no one could pronounce the Danish word, so they ended up just being called "danish".
This typical of most migrations. Americans visiting europe
for the first time are generally appalled at the pizza they find, even in italy
. Then even more appalled when they see europeans eating it with a knife and fork.
Course no one else in the world makes a hamburger as good as what you can get (some places) in the US
