How to pronounce Paczki – The Polish Chicago Mardis Gras Donut!

How to pronounce Paczki – The Polish Chicago Mardis Gras Donut!

Pączki
(actually this is plural; pączek is the singular form)

How do you pronounce the name of this wonderful
jam, jelly, custard or creme filled donut-like pastry?

Here’s the problem:
The word is Polish, and has been Americanized,
so how you pronounce it really depends
on who’s polish grandmother your parents were talking to
when they bastardized the word into Chicago-eze.
So say it how you want, but to me,
it’s a perfect excuse to put Erik Estrada
into a funny photo with a donut.

Poonch+key?
Punch+key?
Ponch plus Key equals how you pronounce the name of the Mardis Gras Jelly Donut

Erik Estrada from CHiPs (aka Ponch) and a Key = how you pronounce Pazcki

PONCH+KEY!

It goes with the photo, so that’s what we’re sticking with.

You know the theme song from that show is now in your head, don’t you?
