Residents, Families an staff enjoyed the celebration of Mardi Gras!
Fat Tuesday marks the time for people to indulge in fatty foods ahead of the Lenten season. Each year, bakeries across the country celebrate with the production of paczkis — and it’s a beloved tradition here in Northeast Ohio.
Along with the traditional Paczki’s, they even had Cotton Candy and a Popcorn Machine the was poppin’ like crazy!
Pink & Blue Cotton Candy Popcorn anyone?
We enjoyed everything—especially the popular Paczki’s!
If you were lucky enough to even get a taste of one Paczki, count your blessings! We heard that the most popular place (Rudy’s Strudel and Bakery in Parma) to pick up a dozen sold out ! Rudy’s sold approximately 78,000 of the sweet treats in record time during its 74-year history in the business!!
PARMA, Ohio — History was made on Tuesday at Rudy’s Strudel and Bakery on Ridge Road in Parma.
For the first time in the beloved bakery’s 74-year history, they sold out all of their paczki on a Fat Tuesday. Owner Lidia Trempe told 3News that Rudy’s sold roughly 78,000 to 79,000 of the delicious, deep-fried pieces of dough with filling.
