Strawberry Hill Povitica Co. (2) 2.5 lb. Holiday Loaves & Bonus Loaf
The apple cranberry melts in your mouth; it's moist and delicious. Surprisingly, the walnut was equally good. My least favorite was the chocolate. However, in all fairness, I am not a big chocolate eater. This bread was somewhat dryer and not sweet, like a milk chocolate. I am ordering again but will give the chocolate as a gift. .... I did follow directions. The loaves went into the freezer the day they arrived, and once refrigerated we ate them in less than the two weeks recommended.
3rd Times A Charm
Got the order in 4/16 just as moist and sweet as usual dont think it will last till easter!!! This is the third time we bought this.
Cant explain why some got a bad batch, but its just like when i was a kid and mom made nut roll for easter she is gone now and so is her recipe. thanks strawberry hill
MY BEST PURCHASE!!
I had order this item once, and canceled within minutes due to some of the reviews posted. Well, I just received my new order, so here goes. I went to cut a slice, no. problem. Than I broke a piece off and went for it. What the heck, it was wonderful. Not dry or without any flavor. I have tried other items from QVC, but this is best item I have purchased. I WILL be reordering.
My grandmother is from Czech and has made this all of my life, she will be 100 this June. This poppyseed and nut roll is amazing! My grandmother gave it a gold star. That means a lot coming from the women that spent hours making this. It is very difficult to make.
LIKE LOVING GRANDMOTHERS MADE THEM :)
ENJOYED ALL THE NUT, FRUIT, AND CREAM CHEESE SWIRLED LOAVES, THE ONLY ONE I MIGHT CONSIDER DRY WAS THE PLAIN CHOCOLATE, BUT THE REST KEPT WELL IN FRIDGE AND FREEZER DEPENDING ON TIME NEEDED, THANK YOU!!!

I watched the television presentation and was looking forward to receiving these tasty breads. When they arrived, I found them very dry, nearly flavorless, and not sweet even in the slightest,and they should have had some sweetness. The Chocolate bread did have a mild chocolate flavor, that is all.
I am very disappointed and sorry I wasted the money to purchase them. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone...but unfortunately the column doesn't list that choice.
Purchased these when they were first introduced. Very dry and overly dense. I won't purchase again.
I was not sure about this when I saw it on TV, but WOW, when it arrived and I tasted this bread I was amazed at is taste. The loafs are a good size and the Walnut loaf is loaded with walnuts and not a lot of dough. I have eaten the Walnut bread fresh out of the package, toasted and grilled. I grilled the Walnut bread in some butter in a saute pan and allowed the sugar to caramelize and then I sprinkled it with powdered sugar and poured some real maple syrup on top.......DELICIOUS. My 17 year old daughter made more comfort sounds while eating this than I have ever heard. The other two loaves are in the freezer, but I did cut a slice of the cream cheese loaf before freezing and WOW. I will be re ordering this product when the loaves are gone. This would be great to cut up and take to work for coworkers, put out for a Sunday Brunch, or stick in your child's lunch as a great dessert. Really good quality bread.
I was disappointed in the flavor and how dry it was. Still have two more to go so I hope they are better!
Not Your Everyday Bakery Bread!!
These breads are delicious and were enjoyed by all in my family. I sent as gifts to family members who are wonderful bakers, and they too enjoyed these items and the wonderful flavor. These are not the usual bakery-style, sweet breads or danishes we find in our local bakeries. If you are looking for that taste, you will not be satisfied. These are definitely more in line with what you find throughout Europe, no matter the country. Bakery items and breads are always less sugary than what we find here in our bakeries. I really loved them, because they weren't super sweet, so I can definitely understand people who thought them bland or not the right texture. Will definitely purchase again for Holidays.
These breads looked great however they were very dry and not what I would order again.
No way Jose
they taste good but they are dry. You had better eat them quickly or they will spoil, will not buy again!
