(WXYZ) - Paczki Day is here and while many people will flock to Hamtramck for a tasty Polish treat, we’re showing you what Michigan-made products you could eat or drink for the same caloric intake.
While paczek calories vary depending on the filling, Supreme Bakery in Detroit says one paczek is roughly 700 calories--and that's for one not cooked in lard.
For 700 calories, here is a breakdown of food and drinks you could consume around Michigan:
Better Made Potato Chips: Roughly 3 bags of Barbeque Better Made Potato Chips (Approximately
240 calories in one bag, 1.5 oz.)
Faygo Orange Soda: Roughly 3.5 bottles (Approximately 190 calories per 12 oz. bottle)
McClure’s Pickles: Roughly 4.3 jars of Garlic and Dill Spears (Approximately 160 calories in one 32 oz. jar)
National Coney Island chili dog: Roughly 1.3 Coney dogs with chili, mustard and onion (Approximately 520 calories per dog)
Grand Traverse Pie Company: 1 slice of cherry pie (Approximately 643 calories per slice)
Bell’s Oberon Ale: Roughly 4 Bell's Oberons (Approximately 170 calories per 12 oz. bottle)
