Paczki Shortage Looms in Dallas

Mar 4, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Dallas Observer

In cities with significant Polish populations, Shrove Tuesday is commonly known as Paczki Day in honor of the pastry made with all the lard, eggs and sugar that had to be used up before the traditional Lenten fast began.

Okay I live near Texas Motor Speedway and I walked in to the Wal Mart in Roanoke last night and just about fell over when I saw a bunch of white boxes with "Paczki" typed all over. I was a little less surprised when I looked at the contents and realized they are basically jelly filled donuts. NOT the true Paczki you've probably had back in the Detroit metro area. I give them credit though because at least someone is trying. And yes I did buy a box of chocolate covered bavarian creme. Creme\Jelly filled donuts is exactly what they are. Here's hoping maybe someone can improve on these by next year.
