PLAINS TOWNSHIP -- Customers said just about no one can resist the gratifying and glorious gluten at Bakery Delite, especially before the holiday weekend.

"This is what happens when you can't make it yourself. This tastes very much like my grandmother's," Collen Bowman of West Pittston said.

But just like we have all been told before, good things come to those who wait.

"I don't mind waiting for a half an hour, 45 minutes, it doesn't matter. It's just so good," Debbie Kempa of Swoyersville said.

One woman drove all the way from Philadelphia back home to the Wyoming Valley for these tasty treats.

"Everybody is friendly up here and the food is so wonderful, so I have to come up here and get my fix for Easter," Marcia Washko said.

"It's really neat for me to come and see all of this tradition, to see the tradition in the valley. I mean, we've been all over the valley to get things and it's really neat for me," Bodine said.
Even though he's living in North Carolina now, he said he will do what it takes to get his hands on the nut roll.

"You have to come to Bakery Delite because there's no nut roll like this in North Carolina," Bodine said.

From Paska bread to poppy seed and everything in between, customers say it's all about the tradition here.

"They make me stop here every year," Bowman said.

The bakery is back at it with its baked goods on Saturday at five in the morning.
