Reason #128: Pučiške krafne – enough said
It’s debatable whether this is a pro or a con of living on Brač. It depends on whether you care about getting fat and whether you possess the necessary willpower to keep a potential addiction under control. I don’t, but I still would not want to live in a world without Pučiške krafne. Ever.
Krafne are similar to doughnuts and they’re a very typical Croatian pastry available at any store or bakery. The dough is usually filled with marmalade, jelly or chocolate. The Pučiške krafne are shoulders above any other krafne, in my book. They come in two flavors: chocolate and marmalade.
Although you can get them anywhere on Brač, it’s best to come visit Pučišća and enjoy them there, as god intended ;)
It helps if you’re going to get on a bike afterwards and burn them off.
Pučiške krafne are made at the Grikula pekara in Pučišća, Brač. Each morning their truck delivers these and other baked goods to stores all over Brač. Make sure you ask for the “Pučiške” since all krafne look more or less the same. But they don’t taste the same.
PS I’m now told the best way to try them is warm, straight out of the oven. I have a feeling someone will be camping out in Pučišća this summer ;)
