Fastnachts are German/ PA Dutch tradition on Fat Tuesday. In German their name means “fast nite”or the night before Ash Wednesday when Lenten fast begins . Fastnachts are eaten before and during the Lenten season. They come plain , powder sugaredor glazed . I eat about 3 donuts per year , but always celebrate Fastnacht Day with a 2fer ! Thank you to Weis Markets Bakery for great Fastnachts !
