Publix, For The Win!

After my huge doughnut debacle with homemade paczki this past weekend, I decided homemade isn't always better. So as now it has been a tradition for 2 years (3 including today), I decided to grab myself a Fat Tuesday Paczki.
The local grocery store, Publix, was rumored online to have paczki for the holidays. I have been to Publix every day for the past 4 days and every day I would ask if they had the special doughnuts yet. Today, they finally arrived!

Publix offered three varieties: raspberry, bavarian cream and apple. I opted for raspberry and could only purchase them in a 4-pack (so my work colleagues will help me eat them tomorrow).
These were delicious, pillowy doughnuts but not the same magical paczki I had 2 years ago. Today, it merely was just a jelly doughnut.

Am I crazy for thinking that I had eaten something so life-changing? Or is it something that I could only dream about from now on? I'm going to persevere and hopefully can patronize this bakery if I'm ever home for Fat Tuesday in the coming years.

HAPPY FAT TUESDAY!

On a side note: after watching The Great British Baking Show's episode on doughnuts, I realized my issues in my doughnut adventure---over-proofed and over-fried. Lesson learned!
