People indulge their sweet tooth with a traditional Fat Tuesday Paczki

Posted: Updated:
Paczkis! Paczkis!
(WOIO) -

It's time for one of Cleveland's sweetest - and most fattening - treats. Local bakers are putting the "fat" in Fat Tuesday with mouthwatering Paczkis!

A typical paczki has over 600-calories, and the traditional filling is prune, although other filling flavors are available.

The overstuffed, donut-like pastries were traditionally made to get rid of all the sugar and lard before the season of Lent.
