Reaction Records was an independent British record label, run by music executive Robert Stigwood in 1966 and 1967. Although Reaction released only three albums, one EP and eighteen singles in its brief existence, its roster included two of the most popular British bands of the time, The Who and Cream. The label's first single, The Who's "Substitute", was released several times with different B-sides due to the band's legal dispute with their former record producer, Shel Talmy.

The Danish pastry is much like a croissant, which originated from Vienna. It is believed that this pastry originated from Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Iceland. In Vienna, however, the pastry is known by the name of "Golatschen". It is also believed that the origin of this pastry might be from the Turkish Baklava. One of the most unique aspects of Danish pastries is the fact that they feature laminated dough.

Twice-Baked Brioche, a breakfast staple of French pastry shops was developed as a way to use up stale brioche, and thus 'cut one's losses'. Bakers traditionally set them aside for themselves, but they became popular so with customers because itís so delicious that many bakers end up making pounds of fresh brioche specifically so that they can bake it twice.
