Though blackbirds were once the most popular pie ingredient, they are now hard to find, since they are extinct. Sink your teeth into less classic ingredients with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of baked goods at Kolache House Bakery and Koffee Kafé, located in Fredericksburg. Kolache House Bakery, one of the east coast's few authentic Czech bakeries, specializes in its mouth-watering kolaches ($0.97 each). Kolaches are traditional Czech treats made of a lightly sweetened pastry topped with fruit, cream cheese or Bavarian cream and sprinkled with streusel. Kolache House Bakery claims they have drastically less fat and fewer calories than donuts or sticks of butter shaped into donuts. Search the menu for the bakery's kolache flavors—from almond and apricot to chocolate bavarian cream—as well as an assortment of bohemian bars ($2.97 each), cream-cheese-infused bouchta ($1.87 each), baked poppy rolls ($13.97), and more. The bakery has an in-house espresso bar serving locally roasted blends, and it also concocts an array of lattes, cappuccinos, and other coffee creations, so you can stave off dreams of steel children and living motorcycles.
