Barbe a Papa

My French is pretty basic-I can get around and order in restaurants (most of the time!). When we were at the Luxembourg Gardens I saw a sign for Barbe a Papa-I thought it must be some kind of snack for the fathers. No, no. It is cotton candy. The translation is "beard of the father." How cute! The girls loved Barbe a Papa and wanted it every time they were at Luxembourg Gardens. I have to say I love the sugary sweetness and that crunch when you take a bite. Unfortunately, the girls were not sharing. Probably best for my waistline!
