Chicago celebrates Fat Tuesday

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - If you're giving up anything for Lent, Tuesday is your last day to enjoy it for 40 days.

It's Fat Tuesday, and the Chicago community is celebrating! And what better way to celebrate a day of delicious treats and indulgence than with some delicious paczki?

Eating a paczki on Fat Tuesday has become a tradition for many, but how many calories are in one of those delicious treats?

Depending on what kind of paczki you get, it can pack anywhere between 400 and 1,200 calories and about 25 grams of total fat.

To burn that off, the average person would have to run about 10 miles.

For those who don’t eat paczkis, one double cheeseburger is around 1,100 calories. But, hey – Fat Tuesday only comes once a year and you only live once! So go ahead and treat yourself!

Can’t make it away from your desk today? Ridesharing service UBER, with the help of Do-Rite Donuts, is delivering paczkis on demand throughout the day Tuesday!

All you have to do is request the “PACZKI” option in you UBER app.
