    They have them at Henning's Market in Harleysville and Landis Markets (probably all locations, Telford, Vernfield, and Perkasie--but that's Bucks County). Also I know various fire companies and churches sell them as a fund-raiser. Frieden's Church in Sumneytown has them for sure. Probably could find the church on a web site. The fund raiser ones are the "real" ones--plain, to eat with syrup. Don't be late--you will be The Fastnacht if you are the last one out of bed that day!

      Yum yum in Colmar/Lansdale definitely has them. (Corner of 309 and Broad.)

        Yum yum in Colmar is so good. I love to go the night before around nine pm or so and see the boxes and boxes of pre-orders stacked high. They have several different kinds. I always get six of the glazed potato donuts and then a mix of the others. /drool.

        I have a friend who told me that the Frieden's Church were doing pre-orders that ended on the 13th :-(

        does Yum Yum have the "real" fastnachts??

          Yes, they advertise for Fastnachts Day but I think they are just selling their regular doughnuts. I did not grow up with the tradition but understand that the real deal is something quite different.

          The Dutch Oven Bakery on Ridge Pike in Limerick makes pretty good ones!
