I don't know about you, but it feels like my Fat Tuesday won't be complete until I have a paczki.

I'd never even heard of them until I moved to Wisconsin 5 years ago and ever since trying my first one from a small bakery in Lake Geneva, I've been hooked.

Now that I'm in Rockford, I have no idea where to find them; so I did some research and found the best places to find paczki in the Stateline area.

Don't miss out, it seems this delicious pastry is typically only offered just for Fat Tuesday.
