Windsor Essex Paczki Day Guide 2022

Saturday, February 12 to Tuesday, March 1

Paczki Day (also known as Shrove Tuesday or Fat Tuesday) is almost here and we’ve got your Guide to getting your hands on these delicious traditional Polish doughnuts. Available with decadent fillings ranging from lemon and strawberry to nutella and custard and liberally coated with powdered sugar or icing, the “best doughnuts in the world” are incredibly rich and each packs a hefty punch, clocking in at an average of 500-700 calories! And yes, these once-a-year treats are worth every calorie. Held every year on the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, paczkis were designed to use up a household’s supply of lard, sugar, and eggs in preparation for the Lenten fasting season. Stop by one of these locations to pick up some fabulous paczki before giving them up for Lent!
