Fastnacht Day


The following is a Facebook conversation I had with a friend who just moved to San Francisco. Me: So how bad do you want a fastnacht right now? There weren't any within, like, 60 miles of my school, and that's all I could think about on Fastnacht days up there. I don't even like them that much. They're just prepubescent creme-filled doughnuts. But when they're not around, it drives a man insane. ....podcast. Him: I really want one...I remember eating about five last year, and I hadn't eaten a Fastnacht since the last Fasnacht day, in fact, it was the only donut related thing I had eaten all year. I asked a girl I was talking to last night if she knew what TastyKake was and she stared at me with the blankest of expressions. I couldn't even properly describe the peanut butter tandycakes...and yes, PODCAST. Someone asked him what Fastnacht Day is. His response: Only a day in which everyone literally hands you delicious powdered donuts. You basically eat about twenty at a time with powdered sugar running down your face,and the sugar becomes entrenched in the fabrics of your clothes. You want to feel bad for eating them, but you cannot because it was worth it. Wash it down with a cool glass of milk and the smile will not flee from thy face for many moons. I miss that kid.

If they're anything like the "whoopie pies" I've had outside Lancaster County, I'm afraid to try inauthentic fastnachts...

Not that I need a whole lot of convincing to make a trip to the Southern Tier.
