One of our twitter followers, @DrNorthwest, asked about where one might find Pączki for this Fat Tuesday. While it’s not on our must-eat list (we’re more beignet lovers here) we do thankfully have a little information on the matter, thanks in no small part to Ask Metafilter. This time last year someone else asked looking for a source and the upshot was this:
- Giant stores was advertising in their circulars they would have them last year. No sign of them in the 2/12 circular for my area, however.
- Woodmoor Pastry Shop in Silver Spring was listed as a source.
- So was the Kielbasa Factory in Rockville.
Spotted any anywhere else? Sing out in the comments.
Update @ 10:30 – thanks Sean & Nanther who both report spottings in Giant (Van Ness and West Falls Church). Sounds like you’ve got a good chance of getting them at your local Giant if all else fails.
