(WXYZ) — Today is Fat Tuesday!

Mardi Gras is underway in New Orleans, Mobile and other cities, but here in Michigan, we call Fat Tuesday something else.

Today is Paczki Day! Several bakeries across metro Detroit will be selling the sweet treats.

Paczki can come in a variety of flavors, from fruit to chocolate to even unique flavors like cannoli, beer and pretzel.
