What the Heck is a Pączki?

Every year just before Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday), people begin clamoring for paczki, Polish jelly doughnuts (pronounced pownch-key). In some neighborhoods the Thursday before Mardi Gras is Paczki Day, in others it’s Fat Tuesday. There is honestly no wrong day to enjoy them. What is your favorite flavor? Who makes the best? (Besides babcia, of course).
