Found: Heretic in Walmart / Nalezen: Kacir ve Walmartu

false kolachesNow this is an atrocious lie! Do you see on that photo what I see? Mr. Owen is daring to call hotdog in a bun  a “KOLACHE”???!!! Now either that person is A/making a cruel joke or B/someone of a distant Czech origin described to him a long time ago what kolaches are but his description was very poor….or do you have a “C” option to explain this barbaric acton?

I took this photo not very long ago on one of my not-so-frequent-trips to Walmart.

AND here is an image (and a recipe) of true Czech/Slovak Kolache.…for comparison. Now you see what I mean?

CZ: Tak se prosim podivejte na foto, ktere jsem nedavno vyplodila ve Walmartu. Nejaky pan Owen si dovoluje nazvat parek v rohliku ‘KOLACE’!!!!! Tak to uz je dost. Takoveho kacire jsem tu jeste nepotkala.

If you liked this post buy me a coffee! (Suggested:$3 a latte $8 for a pound) Thanks!

    Stupidni podobne jako “toaster strudle” Ti co si vymysli podobne “vynalezy – novinky” pro US market vedi, ze vetsina nakupujici verejnosti nema sajnu o co jde a nic nevi o originalite – z ktere kultury – zemi tyto prisli – odkud je jejich puvod at jiz jde o kolace ci strudl. Nekdy se me chce zvracet!!!

    No idea what this imposter is but my favorite authentic kolach were from Sykora’s Bakery in Czech Village in Cedar Rapids Iowa where I grew up. Sadly they are gone now but I can still taste the cottage cheese (and/or poppy seed) kolaches along with fresh baked Rolicky.

    Growing up in a Czech household in Chicago we all knew what a REAL kolache looked and tasted like- the apricot and poppyseed were always my favorites.
    I saw this oddity that is just a big pig-in-a-blanket when I moved to Dallas with my husband. I know there is a large Czech population in Texas, but I couldn’t understand why this became a ‘Kolache’. Plus I cringe every time someone butchers the pronunciation. Here is the explanation I have heard:

    “Kolaches have been introduced stateside by Czech immigrants in regions like Eastern and Central Texas. The term has also come to refer to a savory variety stuffed with items like mini-sausages, cheese and jalapeño. The slightly sweet roll is best eaten warm, with the gooey cheese melted all around the salty sausage.

    Some believe this non-sweet adaptation on the pastry that is widely popular across Texas, to be the result of Americanization. Others maintain that the correct term for the variety is Klobasnek, a distinct albeit similar item whose name translates in Czech to “Pig in a Blanket.” Most call it a good excuse to eat hot dogs for breakfast.”

    The explanation is apparently that klobasnek somehow got confused with koláč in Texas and now for ages and ages they have called both of them koláče. That’s not so weird. My family calls vánočka “houska”, which is what my grandmother called it.

    Vanocka called houska???? I see another heretic in the house! 😉

    I would never imagine mistaking párek v rohlíku for a kolač!

    That’s quite literally giving someone a hot dog and telling them it’s a tart. That’s nuts.
