I am not wanting to start a huge thread here but I observe that  
"ethnic" foods in other countries are modified to suit local taste.  
Indian food in England is certainly like this. American pizzas are  
nothing like Italian ones etc.. Perhaps the kolaches you are used to  
have been "Americanised" ?
