Oh Lord is it that time of year again already?

Didn't we just start the new year? I'm just barely giving in to the fact that I'm not sticking to my weight loss and eating right resolutions.

And now the fear of FAT TUESDAY is upon us.

Fat Tuesday for 2021 is Tuesday February 16th.

Great.

2 days after the chocolates of Valentine's Day.

This does not look good.

But what are you gonna do? You can't avoid them. They're already turning up at QD.

Give in...to the PACZKI.

And while you're giving in, here's where you can get them locally.

McConnell Adams TSM Lansing

First stop...and oh look. A new flavor to go along with the 12 or so they already have. I'm drooling and getting fatter while typing this.

We asked around and folks told us if you're in Jackson, you might want to check with Hinkley Bakery. The post below is from last year and if they do it like they did then, they'll only be available on Fat Tuesday and you're encouraged to pre-order. Message them on Facebook to find out if they are making them or call and inquire (517) 782-1122.

If we say Vegan Paczki and that sounds STRANGE to you, we've done our job. Another local favorite who graced us with Fat Tuesday Treats was Strange Matter Coffee.  Again this post was from last year and you should check to see if they will be doing it again. Check their website or call them at (517) 224-5495.

Let's get GROOVY baby because we KNOW they've got them at Groovy Donuts in East Lansing and Williamston.

And finally, you can get your Paczki fix at Bea's Bakery Owosso.

If you know of any other local businesses (or you own one yourself) and are providing Paczki this year, please let us know. Send us a message via App Chat using our free app. Or message us on social media.
