So, you know how sometimes you go to a new place, and people who have been there before all enthusiastically tell you "OMG you HAVE to go to such-and-such place and get the thingamajigger! It's the best one of those thingamajiggers we've EVER had?" (Come on, we've all done it, trying to share the things we love with new people.)
Sometimes those places that people recommend are bakeries. But t thing about bakeries is that they're filled with sugar and simple carbohydrates. Kevin and I usually try to avoid sugar and simple carbohydrates. (Neither of us has a very big sweet tooth either, so bakeries are never very high on our list. Fish markets? Farmer's markets? Craft distilleries? Yes please.)
But so many people told us about Sluys Poulsbo Bakery, that we stopped in yesterday after a large lunch (so add to the non sweet tooth, we were full). It looked like every other bakery: donuts, pastries, brownies, cookies, breads, more donuts, you get the idea.
We picked out two things to share and assumed we'd be sugared out after one bite. We were wrong.
Very wrong. The first thing we tried was one of these powdered sugar covered "Rosette". It was not too sweet, and it was not cakey. It was crunchy and delicate, and filled with air and sugar fumes. It was so LIGHT! (Is there anything even IN this bag??)
The second thing we tried was one of their most popular items…called a "Viking Cup" and can be seen in the first photo toward the middle. It's like a cinnamon roll with an open middle filled with cream cheese frosting. It was delicious, and not too sweet, and the frosting was perfect.
And so this morning before we left Poulsbo, we headed up to town for some breakfast and then headed straight back to Sluy's for some more sugar and simple carbohydrates.
We bought two more Rosettes, two more Viking Cups (why mess with success?). Due to it being earlier in the day the selection of breads was plentiful, and we picked up a bag of cheesy jalapeno rolls (because, holy crap!) and a loaf of their original Poulsbo Bread. We'll figure out something to do with it all, I'm certain.
Back to Airship past all the empty guest slips:
Headed down to Port Orchard and then Blakely Harbor on Bainbridge Island next!
