Paczki Day at Smurawa's Country Bakery

On Fat Tuesday, it's all hail the paczki! Loaded with sugar, carbs, and deliciousness, it's a ideal way to get that last guilty pleasure out of the way if you plan on eating healthy during the Lenten season.

Northern Michigan throw on your sweatpants and get ready for a jelly filled morning, today is Fat Tuesday! "It was a way to splurge before you had your 40 days of giving it all up".

"It's been here a long time, you know, people ride past it and they don't understand what it is until they finally pull up and say 'Oh, here it is".

LaDawn Stuben, the head pastry chef at Liberty Market in downtown Gilbert, learned to make the decadent doughnut five years ago, after her husband - who's from MI - had trouble finding them in Arizona.

If the pork fat and bacon one doesn't suit your fancy, many other flavors are available.

"We have apple and apricot, blueberry, cherry, chocolate custard, cream cheese", said Kristin, a staff member at Country Bake Shop.

"How many we make this year?"
