What the heck is a Beard Papa?
That's the question I was asking myself last week. Based on fellow ActiveRainer Jeremy Wrenn's suggestion, I have been looking to join a Business Networking International (BNI) group.
I looked up the place where the meeting was to be held, and the directions said it was at something called Beard Papa's Fresh'n Natural Cream Puffs, 4922 W. SR 46, Sanford, FL 32771, 407-322-3456.
So Beard Papa's is a cream puff place? And why isn't it Bearded Papa's? Their logo looks like Papa Smurf! In my nearly 42 years of livin', I have never had a cream puff. The only cream puffs I've ever seen have been called North Texas, Temple, Central Michigan, Florida....
But apparently, there's a difference between teams that get stomped by my 13-time National Champion Alabama Crimson Tide and the actual puffy cream-filled eclairs and such that are their namesake. Who'd have thunk it?
Off I went to this place earlier today- this restaurant...or bakery...or puffery. After the BNI meeting, I decided I had to have one of those puffs. I went with one of those puffy, creame-filled, chocolate-topped puffs- and it was delicious. Where have these puffs been all my life? Doesn't matter- I found 'em.
Take a trip to Beard Papa's Fresh'n Natural Cream Puffs, 4922 W. SR 46, Sanford, FL 32771, 407-322-3456 when you get a chance.
NOTE: If searching for this place using GPS or Google, use the address as typed above versus Beard Papa's. Using the name will have to on the East side of I-4 and bouncing around Rinehart Road- while the puffs will be getting old as they sit at Beard Papa's on the West side of I-4 acros from the 7-11.
