In addition to Fliptop, we also discovered an interesting dessert truck at the Columbia StrEAT event. This truck sells one thing, an East European dessert called Slavic Roll, hence the truck name “Slavic Rolls”.

The slavic roll is a big hollow donut-like pastry cylinder. They make it by wrapping a long strip of dough around this cylindrical baking apparatus, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, then it is placed in a rotisserie oven to bake.

Making Slavic Rolls

For $5.99 you get one Slavic Roll and two types of filling. They smear a healthy serving of filling on the two ends of the cylinder, give it a nice squish and they are ready to be eaten. You can get one with three fillings for $6.99.

We were told just the other day that the key is to watch for the red neon sign outside of the store. If it blinks, then a new batch of Original Glazed doughnuts is served fresh, hot out of the oven. Is it true? Let’s find out.

We arrived at the Krispy Kreme on a Saturday afternoon and right away spotted the red neon sign. It’s on, but wasn’t blinking. We went inside the store and asked if they have any fresh doughnuts. They said they just made a batch of Original Glazed 10 minutes or so ago. Darn it, we just missed it. OK, when’s the next batch? In another 10-15 minutes, he says. So we decided to grab a couple of doughnuts and enjoy them in the sun, while waiting for the new batch.
