Welcome to the Atlas Obscura Community discussion of Pączki. Ask questions or share tips, experiences, pictures, or general comments with the community. For the story behind this food, check out the Atlas Obscura entry:


Every spring on the strip of I-95 North that runs through Springfield, MA, the local grocery chain, Big Y, raises a billboard that says “Pączki!” to advertise their (admittedly inferior) bumper crop of these donuts.


Those presented Paczki have never been seen in the Metro Detroit area in my 69 years of divulging.
