Rich dough, jelly filling, and powdered goodness awaits you this upcoming Fat Tuesday in the form of a paczki. The Polish doughnut has become a phenomenon in the metro Detroit area, and it’s easy to see why. Paczkis, not to be confused with the typical donut, are made with a richer dough and are typically filled with jelly, custard or a sweet filling.

It’s okay if your mouth is starting to water, ours are too.

Last week we took a poll to see which paczki flavor was the favorite among our In the D readers. And while there may not be many wrong choices when it comes to paczkis, the overwhelming majority of you chose…custard! With that, we’ve compiled a list of some great places in southeast Michigan to get your hands on those delicious custard-filled delights this Fat Tuesday.
