Babka catching on in Alabama

Every time I go to New York I bring back chocolate Babka and Rugelach from Zabar's.

No one down here has ever heard of them before (and no one watched Seinfeld -- cinnamon is a "lesser babka"). But they've caught on with my co-workers. Now, other people are bringing them back from Zabar's when they're in New York. I feel like I've successfully imported a little yiddish yank culture down South.
