I drink soda.... Who drinks pop?

I like a frappe.... Who likes milkshakes?

I eat submarine sandwiches.... Who eats hoagies?

... Any More ...??



Waft every crest upon your destined sea.
Embrace the Wave of Serendipity,
Lest its elusive arcane ecstasy
Refurl with sail for all eternity.

Nan, frappe??? What the?

Kamla,

And what are jumpers and jimmies there?


*snort* Karen, you're not talking about "soda" are you? heh heh

BSC! You know what Weck is! Does New York have BW3s??? OOooohhhh I miss the weck! I miss the Teriyaki! Sweet, reddish Teriyaki on legs…ahkdsndfsnasnjdsansll…*Beth relents to a food-fantasy coma* Why, yes, Russell, I would love aother wing... okay, okay, you can feed it to me... but you have to lick off the sauce you spill this time...

I don't know any chickens with wings that look like buffalo wings... As a matter of fact, a buffalo doesn't have wings.... What imbecile dubbed them with that name anyway?

Jimmies are little chocolate thingies that go on your ice cream.... yummy..

but most everywhere else you get four directions?

Buffalo wings cause the style of cooking and serving it with ranch was first started in Buffalo, New York

I love Hooter's wings -- yummy

Severn is right...I visited family in Asia and they called cookies, biscuits....

lol@EC  want some "chips ahoy n gravy"

i assume the "buscuits" here in the US are actually called bread there

Like serenity, coke was the generic term for all soft drinks where I was growing up... I can still remember ordering an orange coke when on a trip and wondering why people were laughing at me. LOL

And those sammich thinggies? *G* They're PO-BOY's... N'awlins style trip to gastronomic delight. *G*

A rose by any other name would still a flower make,
But could you drink a green milkshake?

Grinders are subs... same difference.. yep..

...and a frappe is better than a milkshake because it's got  more ice cream in it.. Milkshakes are milkier...

Green milkshakes are a MacDonald's specialty on and about St Patricks Day..

I have never heard the term 'frappe' before! All we have where I live are 'milkshakes.'

Of course I prefer malts....especially made with Hershey's syrup. Never make them with Quik powder because they get too watery.

Yeah like Starbuck's Frappucino. That's what I first thought of when I read the term frappe.

Starbucks is "borrowing" the name then.. The entire northeast should know what a frappe is... It's the ultimate in an ice cream shake... Really thick and ice creamy...

Oh - We also drive around rotaries here.. They aren't traffic circles.  A rotary is probably the ultimate driving challenge for visitors... You don't stop before entering - You just schmooze your way into the already moving traffic - weave in or out, depending where you're exiting - then schmooze your way out to your off ramp - Never, ever slow down or stop - Those already in the rotary have the right of way... Just DIVE in... Some people find themselves driving in circles for literally hours.....

Beth...biscuits and gravy? What the hell are YOU thinking of?

You know cookies...yummy things you eat that are generally supposed to be bad for you? Those are biscuits...

So when you ask - what do we call biscuits...I have to say we likely call them biscuits heh

oh and I found out that utes in america are what we call jeeps, and jeeps in NZ are what you call utes...

Biscuitly bizarre...

Sack / Bag

My first culture shock came when I moved to Colorado. I went into a store and bought a few packs of gum. The lady behind the counter asked if I wanted a sack. I said, "No, just a small bag will be fine." She just gave me a puzzled look. To me a sack is like a potato sack.

Where I grew up, we had the best milkshake in the world. It was called an Awful Awful, then they changed the name to Frible--never tasted the same.

I think a frappe is more like a Slurpee--yuch!

A pop is a lolly pop, not Soda, which is not to be confused with Soda Water. Coke means Coke--not Pepsi, If I want a Pepsi, I'll ask for it. "We don't have Coke. Is Pepsi o.k.?" Oh, my God, no not that. But when I ask for Pepsi, sometimes they give me a Coke and never ask if that was o.k. instead. Yet, sometimes when I ask for a Coke, they think it means anything that's soda pop.
