The humble loaf of bread has defended civilization for centuries by feeding the hungry and being thrown at the obnoxious. Stock up on delicious ammo with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two loaves of povitica bread (a $39.18 value) at the Strawberry Hill Povitica Company in Lenexa.
Keeping Eastern European tradition alive, the Strawberry Hill Povitica Company handrolls povitica dessert bread into 10 decadent flavors. Using techniques rooted in old-world methods, the passionate bakers handcraft each of the original recipes exactly as the original owner's mother did, except without the mandatory Stalin's Mustache loaf shape. Weighing 2.5 pounds at loafbirth, the sugary bread hypnotizes sweet-toothed masticators with mesmerizing swirls of flavor. The classic english-walnut flavor, flavored with walnuts and honey, draws its name from its strong cockney dialect. Apple-cinnamon fuses two highly celebrated tree-derived flavors, and the rich sweetness of strawberry cream cheese pairs perfectly with coffee, tea, or a 40 of AM Ale.
Strawberry Hill Povitica Company
Harley, the founder of Strawberry Hill Povitica Company, began baking povitica bread in 1984 using his mother's traditional Slavic recipe. He passed away in 1999, but his children and dedicated bakers continue to prepare the dense, sweet bread following his mother's technique. They roll dough into paper-thin layers, pile on ingredients such as nuts and honey, and roll the layers into loaves that weigh 2.5 pounds each after they're baked. Patrons can choose from Kosher-certified flavors such as english walnut, cokolada, or chocolate-chip cream cheese. The bread can be enjoyed in a variety of ways: toasted and buttered, crowned with a scoop of ice cream, or sandwiched around a whole roasted turkey.
