State Senator Frank Klocek says he’s not backing down in what he calls the Kolache war. The Scotland Democrat failed to convince a legislative committee to pass a bill that would designate the kolache as the state’s official pastry. Some committee members say the bagel or the cannoli are good candidates too. Klocek says he’ll try to get the kolache bill considered on the senate floor, even though it was defeated 4 to 2 in committee.
The German in me also loves Kuchen. I’m torn.
