Employees at Schmidt’s Bakery say 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.
