MINI BELIEVE IT OR NOT –
Pet de nonne is a popular French Pastry. It’s name translates to “Nun’s farts” or “Nun’s puffs.”
- It’s made from butter, milk, flour, sugar, eggs and sometimes honey
- They’re usually fried and then baked, and are kind of like doughnuts
- The dessert has been described “heavenly light and tender morsels”
- A similar French-Canadian dessert, pets de soeurs, translates to “Farts of religious sisters,” but it’s a totally different food
“BIONs” – short for Believe It or Not – is the word we use at Ripley’s to refer to anything that is unbelievable and worthy to become part of Ripley’s lore and collection.
