Top 10 Ways to Eat a Rugelah (croissant):
This was written for a blog contest, but I decided to post it here for your interest. See which of this methods you're most likely to employ!
  1. Start from one end and bite lengthwise (wide side) in progressive stages until you reach the other end.
  2. Start from one end and bite widthwise (narrower side) in progressive stages until you reach the other end.
  3. Peel the thin edge of the rolled-up strip. Keep peeling and eating until the entire rugelah is consumed. Not suggested for individuals with ADD/ADHD.
  4. Use a fork to pierce the center of the rugelah and chew politely. Perfect for people who feel their empty hands look unbecoming.
  5. Using a napkin, grasp the rugelah with your thumb and index finger in a pincer-grasp. Then eat. Great for use in high society.
  6. Using a bag to prevent your hands from getting dirty, hold the rugelah in your hand and chew. Works well while on the go.
  7. Stick a toothpick in one end of the rugelah and out the other. Proceed to eat like corn-on-the-cob, holding both ends of the stick.
  8. Place rugelah in mouth and suck until it eventually disintegrates. Works best for adults with dental issues.
  9. Pop the entire rugelah into your mouth at once. Applies to smaller-sized rugelach only.
  10. Pretend to eat the rugelah by bringing it up to your mouth and feigning chewing and swallowing. For dieters only.
