ileen Trixie Sobieck chooses her battles carefully, and as proof one can reference her rage over the terminology used to describe small portions of doughnuts in the shape of a ball.
It all began back in 2005 when a fight at the Sobieck residence over the correct terminology regarding doughnut balls. (Newsletter August 2005) Sobieck felt that the term doughnut holes was grossly incorrect as she felt that the hole as it were is a void therefore cannot exist, and certainly cannot be sold as named. Arguments over the issue regularly broke out at Sobieck home with family and visitors alike, but Sobieck would not be shaken in her determination over the name.
The controversy escalated and by September 2009 Sobieck had approached the management at the
local Festival Food store to officially dispute their claims of doughnut balls actually being doughnut holes as they are identified on the packaging. (Newsletter September 2009) Sobieck refused to give up and as a result the 8 year old battle over the terminology for the confection has ended with a simple grocery ad in the

Sunday edition of the Green Bay Press Gazette. Simply stated the store is now officially calling the tasty treat "Doughnut Bites".
Sobieck was visibly proud over her victory and the 8 years she stuck to her guns when it looked like all attempts to change the name failed. She says she plans to kick back for a while and celebrate her victory with a cocktail or two before she starts a new battle. Sobieck when asked what she would tackle next was quick to point out that she doesn't go around looking for these arguments but if the need arises she would not hesitate to engage in another fight. She added that she thought the name "head cheese seems incorrect to her, "it's neither head, nor cheese!"
