Happy Paczki Day or Happy Fat Tuesday!

It doesn't matter what you call it. What matters is that you have paczki. A lot of paczki.

Meijer is helping us keep the fat in Fat Tuesday. Meijer said they expect to sell one million paczki ahead of Fat Tuesday.

A paczki is a traditional Polish donut filled with a sweet filling, then covered in powder sugar, icing or glaze. They are especially popular in the large Polish communities of Chicago, Detroit, and other areas across the Midwest and Northeast, but anyone with common sense loves them.

Meijer carries nine different flavors of paczki: cheese, Bavarian Cream, raspberry, cherry, lemon, blueberry, apple, prune and strawberry.

But everyone knows REAL paczki are always prune. Right?
