I'd never heard of these until a few years ago. We don't have a big Polish concentration in Eastern New England. But the BigY Supermarket chain out of the Springfield area (which is the Polish center) opened nearby and offers about 6 or 8 flavors this time of year.
I'm tempted, but then I wonder if it's worth trying a supermarket version.
I've tried them twice, but not this year, or ever again, as they were STALE. I got my money back the second time (with an attitude).
Big Y has, IMO, gone way down hill. Their bakery is a shadow of its' former self with about a third of the cases filled with decorations, rather than baked goods. They have, IMO, entered an ever tightening spin, and from the outside looking in, I doubt that they will recover. They have higher prices, stale baked goods, and service that is not as good as the competition.
