Paczki and Fat Tuesday. Some things just go together.
Jeff Callen is the co-owner at National Bakery and Deli in Milwaukee. He says they’re expecting lots of people to get their paczki fix this Mardi Gras.
“We have enough [supplies] to finish our goal of 36,000 [paczki] in one day,” Callen said.
36,000. In one day. And that’s not including the pre-sales from Monday.
If you included the paczki pre-sales, “roughly, you know, 42,000 for the two days,” Callen said.
So what are the best selling paczki flavors on Fat Tuesday?
“Definitely I think the raspberry glaze is our best seller,” Callen said.
“However, we’re finding that the raisin glaze is picking up a little bit too.
But we still have a lot of customers who like the traditional prune.”
Callen says the bakers got to work making paczkis around 3:00 p.m. Monday,
they won’t stop until the doors are closed on Fat Tuesday.
