Fat Tuesday

February 16th, 2021

Well, it took another three years, but we finally got some paczki from our local bakery (Sauer’s) for Fat Tuesday!

Paczki

Paczki from Sauer’s Bakery

Yesterday Joe also picked up some paczki from Caputo’s for only 59¢s; each. They were ok, but compared to Sauer’s they were garbage. I’ll gladly pay twice as much at Sauer’s for this once a year treat. We pre-orderd (and pre-paid) for them on Thursday so pickup today was painless, especially at 10:30 am when the morning rush had passed.

We got: 2 strawberry, 2 cheese, 1 cherry, and 1 raspberry. The strawberry ones are made with fresh strawberries so they cost almost $2 each and frankly they weren’t that great. As Joe put it, he’d prefer one with just the goo. We haven’t tried the raspberry one yet, but the cherry was pretty good, especially compared to Caputo’s. We had an apricot one from Caputo’s as well, but didn’t order that flavor from Sauer’s this year. Next year we plan to try the apricot and lemon flavors. There were just too many to choose from and they’re really only good on day one.

The star of the show, however, were the cheese paczki. The cheese filling is creamy like a custard. The flavor reminds me of what cheesecake tastes like before it’s baked. In other words, delicious, and our absolute favorite flavor. We’ll definitely be getting more of those next year.
