What's better than the best selling, highly addictive flavor of the poppy seed kolachi rolls?... Adding a generous amount of plump & juicy raisins! This popular Eastern European treat is loaded with fresh ground poppy seed filling. Poppy seeds are usually found sprinkled on breads, or even in salad dressing, but you must grind them to release their addicting flavor. We fresh grind our poppy seeds to give our filling the pleasant bitter sweet, slightly nutty, perfectly balanced taste that we remember from Mom and Grandma's kitchen.

Many of you have heard them called poppy seed rolls, bread, cakes, but maybe you've also heard Mom & Grandma call them by their old world name. All of the following terms that begin with an "M" mean poppy seed. Depending on the language, you may follow that with rolls, bread, cakes, or the old world terms kolachi, beigli, potica, povitica, strudel, etc... Austrian mohnkuchen or mohnstriezel, Bosnian or Croatian makovnjaca, Czech makovy zavin, German mohn strudel or mohnstrudel, Hungarian makos beigli, Lithuanian aguonų vyniotinis, Polish makowiec, Russian bulochki s маком, Slovak makovnik, Ukrainian makovyi knysh.

Each roll comes whole, not sliced - about 14" long. Slice to preferred thickness, usually between 18-28 slices. May freeze up to 6 months.

We don't believe in preservatives, but for your safety they're required in this filling. Our poppy butter is loaded with the highest quality fresh ground poppy seeds and no fillers, for the irresistible flavor we love. Nutrition Facts

I haven't had a poppy seed roll for decades! This poppy seed roll was as good as my mom used to make and that is saying a lot!!! When it arrived it was as fresh as if it were just baked and the generous filling was simply mouth-watering delicious!

Poppyseed roll
We enjoyed the poppyseed roll with seven other people
At a Slovak style dinner in Coshocton, Ohio last Friday. God Bless those first generation Slovak ladies who continued and brought the tradition to us. I wouldn’t even have a clue as to even begin to make a roll. Where does one even locate poppyseed in this day and age without being investigated by local Authorities? We are ready to try one of the nut rolls at our next dinner.

New Flavor
My (Slovak) grandmother made a prune & poppyseed kolache for my (Polish) grandfather when I was young to make the poppy seeds stretch, due to expense of the poppy seeds. And both she and grandpa enjoyed prune filling. So I decided to try the poppyseed raisin variety you guys make & I have to say is MUCH better than the prune-poppyseed combo that grandma made

Poppyseed roll
The filling was great: the sweetness of the poppyseed and the slight tartness of the raisins was magical. The pastry was very uninspired. It was doughy, dense and very much detracted from the filling.

After 20 + years of not able to get this wonderful poppy seed bread was such a wonderful treat. We had 2 great polish bakeries locally. Unfortunately one burned down. The other closed after many years. My Daughter and I are the only family that just loves this bread. My only negative is I thought it was a tad to sweet from memories long ago. However, it did not and will not change how much we enjoyed it and hopefully will for many years to come. Thank you, many times over.
