Rated 5 out of 5 by Tastes like homemade We have been ordering this Potica Pastry from the Vermont Store for several years and have never been disappointed. It tastes like homemade. Delivery and packaging is excellent. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone. January 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by AUTHENTIC POTICA PASTRY For years I have made Potica and it is not the easiest thing to make. When I heard about The Vermont Country Store, I ordered the pecan potica. I have to admit that it was actually better than mine. I will definitely be ordering from them again. January 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A taste of my childhood My mother's family is from north central Illinois and there was an Armenian bakery that would only make Potica as special order items during the holidays. After that bakery closed we tried a few mail order Poticas but nothing came close until this one! A slice warmed up and slathered in butter is an absolute slice of heaven. Thank you so much!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by A gift truly appreciated. Sent this as a gift to a friend in San Francisco -- he said this is just like mom would make. Truly took him back to his childhood. July 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just like Aunt Rosie used to make My grandparents immigrated to the US from Slovenia in the late 1800's. My grandmother brought with her the family recipe for potica. It has been passed down through the family for generations. It was always good, but my Aunt Rosie's was always the best -- moist, delicious and having the most paper-thin crust of all. And now I've tasted one that equals Aunt Rosie's, the Vermont Country Store's version! One slice brought me back to my Aunt Rosie's kitchen in Cleveland and the wonderful holiday times with Aunts, uncles and cousins. January 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by First Time I tried it. Excellent dessert dish after a holiday meal. Smells delicious when heated or toasted. January 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Unique & very tasty Potica is a new bread for me. Of all the family here for Christmas, I liked it most. My personal preference is the pecan, but the apple is also good. Lucky me--since it was my personal favorite, I ate most of both breads. January 13, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A Close 2nd I had a friend who made potica from an old Polish recipe each Christmas. In her version, the nut filling was folded into whipped egg whites, making it sweet but light. This one is the closest I've come to "Donna's nutrolls." December 31, 2014

What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Authentic Potica Pastry …

"I grew up with this delicious bread." - Patricia Hill, Hutchinson, MN

"I ordered a Walnut Potica from the Christmas catalogue for my cousin and her family who live in Boston, Massachusetts. They shared it at a family gathering on Christmas Eve and said it was delicious. There is no way I could pull myself together during the holiday season to make a potica. Thank you for making the Eastern European favorite available." - Lois Kubit, Parma, OH

"Your potica is just as I remember my grandma's to be. It's not easy to make, which makes me appreciate yours even more. With your help, I've been able to pass along a family holiday tradition. Thanks!" - Karen, Charlotte,

"I was born and raised in Euclid, Ohio, and i used to help my grandmother who came from Slovenia,Yugslavia... and how I loved being with her and remembering my favorite thing in the whole world to eat was potica. It took a day to make. Yours is delicious, and thank you for the memories. Linda" - linda mervar, menlo park, CA

"Seeing this in your catalog brought back memories for me. My grandmother was from Yugoslavia and used to make this as well for my family. I can't wait to try yours and compare the two." - Richard Fabian, Rochester, NY

"My mother and I used to make potica for every special occasion. It required a devotion to the process for the whole day. This potica is exactly like the wonderful ones that we used to make. Basic ingredients and flavorful goodness that are so much appreciated and loved. Thanks for sticking with tradition." - Jo Smallwood, Newport Beach, CA

"I am a Slovenian from Ohio, and my mother made this every year and filled the dough so full you couldn't see the layers. Yours is very good and my family likes it, which means I don't have to do any of the work. It's a two-day process of love. I order it every year. Thanks! Barb" - Barbara G. Joslin, Punta Gorda, FL

"I've been ordering your potica for several years now. My mother is Slovenian but moved from Pueblo, Colorado, to Indiana when she married my father. Potica was always a part of our trips home, but neither my mother nor I ever made one. Now I share yours with her and her friends at her nursing home at Christmas. It's like going home for the holidays." - Jan Armstrong, Springville, IN

"Grew up in Cleveland, OH. In Georgia 47 years now. Mom's side was Slovenian, and homemade Potica was a part of every holiday and celebration. I have a cousin in Cleveland who just sent me three loaves for my freezer - made with the walnuts and mine HAS TO HAVE raisins. She has the BEST source from an elderly Slovenian lady. Anytime I get a visitor from up there I tell them to bring Potica. LOVE THE STUFF. Thanks." - Claudette Mazurkiewicz, Grayson, GA
