Celebrate Fat Tuesday with Bashas’ Supermarkets

Today is Fat Tuesday, and it’s a food holiday to celebrate! Paczki (pronounced “Poonch-key”) – are deep-fried pastries with a decadent filling – and they are traditional Fat Tuesday treats. Historically, families use up items that are forbidden during the Lenten season – like fat, sugar, eggs, and fruit – to make these sweet, indulgent pastries called Paczki. No matter what flavor is your favorite, you’ll find delicious Paczki at a great price at Bashas’ bakeries. A half-dozen Paczki is $3.49, and an individual Paczek (“Poon-check”) is only 79 cents. The best part of all? When you purchase your Paczki at Bashas’ bakeries on Tuesday, Feb. 21, you’ll be supporting local families in need. Bashas’ will donate 10% of all Paczki sales on Fat Tuesday to St. Vincent de Paul. Learn more at www.bashas.com
