They’re back! Cherry ‘thing-a-lings’ go on sale today

Cherry 'thing-a-lings' back on sale

BATESVILLE, Ind. (FOX19) - Part doughnut and part fritter, the famous cherry “thing-a-lings” are now taking over an Indiana town.

Schmidt Bakery in Batesville, Indiana cranks out the famous treats to celebrate President’s Day, but you can only get a hold of these sweet, crunchy fried treats during President’s Day weekend through Monday.

Employees at Schmidt’s Bakery said the tradition comes from the story of George Washington chopping down a cherry tree. The thing-a-ling is made like a fritter, but with fresh cherries.

The bakery opened in the 1960s and has been making these delectable cherry-filled treats for decades.

Get ‘em while they’re hot - because after Monday, thing-a-lings will go away until next President’s Day.
