I just heard a Fox 2 news reporter begin the song "There ain't no paczki like a Detroit paczki" in a Hamtramck bakery. A customer replied, "and a Detroit paczki don't stop." It was hilarious. For those who are not aware of this time-honored tradition in the "D," today is Fat Tuesday (day before Lent begins) which means everyone is filling up on paczkis (pronounced poonch, ki). Hamtramck is known for their paczkis (polish donut). Customers line up hours before the polish bakeries in Hamtramck open and there are lines out the door. Paczkis are fatter than regular filled donuts, crunchier, and are filled with either raspberry, custard, (my personal favorites), lemon, strawberry, plum, and I think blueberry, too. Anyway, I know KID and the TBT know what they are and I'm sorry they are missing out. I just thought I would post to let KID know how his music even influenced Paczki Day in his hometown! Happy Fat Tuesday everyone!
