Strawberry Hill Povitica Co. (4) 1 lb. Hand Rolled Swirled Breads
Slicing the loaves
I find that these loaves slice better when frozen. I slice the whole loaf at once when it comes straight from the freezer. I then securely wrap the sliced loaf and put it on a plate. I do not attempt to put it back in the wrapper. Then I can remove the number of slices I want and wrap the rest again until I need it.
Received this product this week opening the blueberry cake first, OMG it is so good, great texture, and taste. I don't know why I waited so long to order. Great for breakfast or just to curb a "sweet tooth".
I don't know what the hosts were eating but it sure wasn't what I received. Excessively dry, flavorless and very heavy.
Bought the 3 loaves offered last Christmas. Loved them all. Was going to share with friends and neighbors but, amazingly they disappeared before I had a chance. I am ordering again today and putting the order on auto-delivery. As other reviewers have stated, this is a very work intensive product to make. Thanks to the bakers!!
WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO TRYING THIS PRODUCT,WELL I DID AND IT WAS RETURNED. IT WAS SO VERY DRY,HAD NO TASTE,VERY,VERY DISAPPOINTED
We are in Povitica Heaven
Just got another shipment of this wonderful product. We enjoy it sliced and toasted (use a toaster oven not a regular toaster). It is wonderful topped with slices of smoked ham and cheese for breakfast. Also try making French toast with it. Slice the Povitica thick and use some Irish cream in the egg wash. Then cook in a contact or Foreman grille
I was eager to get these because they looked so good. I was so disappointed/ They were very dry and when I cut them they fell apart. I was glad I was not going to give these as a gift. So disappointed.
Not what I expected
I should have listened to the reviews. I was expecting so much more not dry and pastey tasting. I am so glad I did not send this as a gift to someone.
I Adore these! Not too sweet
I do not like things overly sweet - I am often sooo disappointed that I often have to give things away that I buy, to people with a sweeter tooth. These are European style, which is what I grew up with. They are dense breads, not cakes. I was afraid when I ordered them, that due to all the people with the American sweet-tooth, that they may have had their recipe worked over and made too sweet - but, though they were a little sweeter than I prefer, they were delightful! I think these are a great introduction, and now have ordered the 3 sets of 2.5 # breads. My only complaint was that this set should be offered in the 2.5# size also! I like them as-is, but my partner likes to pop them into the microwave for a few seconds. Since they are rolled, multi-layer, you do need a sharp knife, or the knife may tear up the bread. They are also good toasted, and with cream cheese, Yum!
Not worth it.
Sorry - we just did not like the taste of these breads. They tasted dry and flat. Thank goodness we were able to get a refund. I'm very hesitate to order food products again.
Have to agree with other reviewers. This was disappointing. Sounded so great listening to the presentation, but they were dry, tasteless, and crumbled when trying to slice. Bought them over the holidays and would never buy them again!! For the money, what a waste!!
Delicious With Tea Or Coffee
Bought these at holiday time. They are delicious slightly warmed with a cup of coffee or tea. My daughter made these in culinary school and these are a lot of work. We enjoyed them!!!
