Deep fried Polish doughnuts, covered with powdered sugar. Called in Polish “pączki” with letter “a” having a little extra line so it looks like “ą”. If a plan letter “a” is used, this word has a completely different meaning and means “packages”.
Everybody in Poland eats these doughnuts on the Fat Thursday holiday, if you don’t , it brings bad luck.
Fat Thursday, in Polish “Tłusty czwartek” is a traditional Catholic Christian feast marking the last Thursday before Lent and is associated with the celebration of Carnival.
