MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) - A new spin on the traditional paczki led to a very busy day at Ryke's Bakery. Early Fat Tuesday morning customers were waiting at the door for the bakery to open. Many were after the bakery's drunken paczki.
The five flavors include spiced rum and Mud Slide. Bakers say their creations are safe for everyone since the alcohol cooks off in the baking process.
"They (customers) kind of go... can we drive? Yes, you can drive, it is safe," says Pam Carlson, Ryke's employee.
A Chicago pastry shop known for drunken donuts was the inspiration for Ryke's creation.
