Strawberry Hill Povitica Co. (4) 1 lb. Hand Rolled Swirled Breads
I don't know what the hosts were eating but it sure wasn't what I received. Excessively dry, flavorless and very heavy.
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!!!
I LOVE this! OMG! Had to do extra days at the gym because these are so good.
BUT I wish QVC would allow a purchase of just one flavor at a time like during the holidays when the apple cranberry is available. That way I could give these as gifts giving the particular flavor I wanted to share.
Let us pick our flavors please
I ordered this some time last year. It was actually the walnut and the chocolate chip and the apple cranberry. Absolutely loved the walnut, the others were not so great. The chocolate was ok, but too much chocolate for my taste. I would buy the walnut over and over again, not the other flavors. I would really love it if they could let us choose the flavors instead of being forced to buy the inferior flavors just to get the walnut. I ended up buying directly from Strawberry Hill, it's more expensive, but at least that way I only get the flavors I want. I give the walnut 5 stars, the chocolate 2 and the apple cranberry 1 star.
I received this shipment in December, 2013. These Breads were dry and not at all like it was demonstrated on QVC, I did not serve them to my holiday guests. Will end up throwing away.
Very disappointed in this purchase. I was planning on giving this to my in laws as part of their Xmas gift and when I opened the box two of the breads where smashed (the box was not). I cut into one and it was dry and not very flavorful. I purchased these from the reviews by the hosts and thinking since they were hand made with European recipe they would be great for my Slovakian in laws. What a waste of money.
