Fan Favorites: Where to Get Paczki in Lake County {2015}

Favorite PaczkiIf you aren’t a Chicagoland native, you may not understand the tradition of Pączki (pronounced “poonch-key”), but once you taste one you’ll be hooked!

Tomorrow is Pączki Day!  They may call it Mardi Gras  in New Orleans and eat beignets, but Fat Tuesday in Lake County is all about the Polish filled donut.  Everyone has their favorite place to get them.  We asked our readers on Facebook where they go to get their Pączki fix:

Deerfield Bakery has the best and most varieties, yum yum ~ Facebook Reader Geri

Taste of Paris mundelein! Delish!! ~ Facebook Reader Jennifer

Last year our fans mentioned  Mundelein Polish Deli for authentic cream-filled Pączki.

Last week our Mom-in-Chief was over on Chicago Parent spreading the gospel of the Pączki.  Read where she thinks are the best places to indulge across Chicagoland.

Wherever you may go, be prepared for possible wait times and call to order ahead if you can!

What’s your favorite Pączki flavor and where do you get yours from?
