Ram Can Haul Your Fat Tuesday Binge

Crunching the Numbers on Hauling Polish Pastries

Feb 17, 2015
Today is Fat Tuesday, which, for those of you not raised in the Catholic tradition, is better known in popular parlance as Mardi Gras. The tradition is most closely associated with New Orleans, but the day is observed by many cultures with a Catholic heritage, including the Polish. Due to the large concentration of Eastern European immigrants in the Midwest, the Polish paczek (plural: paczki) has become a seasonal treat enjoyed by Midwesterners and Americans of all backgrounds, but it should probably be avoided if you’re counting calories. Paczkis are filled donuts traditionally consumed in large quantities on Fat Tuesday, right before the somber, penitent observance of Ash Wednesday. To commemorate the holiday, Ram did some calculations on how many paczkis its vehicles could hypothetically haul.

The gut-busting stats calculated that the compact ProMaster City can haul up to 6,900 of them, or 2.9 million calories worth, with the fullsize ProMaster backing 16,000 paczkis and 6.8 million calories. Based on weight, the Ram 3500 could hypothetically haul up to 110,000 of them, minus the weight of the trailer.
We don’t know if any Polish bakeries have Ram vehicles in their delivery fleets, but they can rest assured the vehicles are up to the job of hauling these traditional Fat Tuesday treats.
