I'm amazed that 56% actually got ovaltine. I thought it'd be far fewer.

Same! I've never tried Ovaltine, but I remembered it because of that riveting scene where Ralphie is dramatically decoding that crummy commercial while sitting on the toilet.

Forgot about Christmas story, I know it primarily from Seinfeld. Can't remember the annoying guy's name, but he was obsessed with things that dissolve in milk.

I've heard them called Orzo before because I save a lot of recipes from the internet. Before that I only knew them by the name Kritharaki which is Greek or Risoni which is Italian.

I've made it with fresh (uncured) pork hocks/shanks. Equally delicious, if not authentic. We raise pasture pork, so I go with what's available.

Osso Buco is made from the shin and hocks of beef cut in rings and when cooked slowly with veg. and seasoning is delicious, the marrow as well as the meat.BTW I have eaten Ostrich and it doesn't taste like Beef to me, more like a mixture of turkey and lamb.

So what'sthe deal with ovaltine? The jar is round, the mug is round... They should call it round-tine!!

The deal is someone misspelled the name on the trademark registration when exporting it to Britain from Switzerland. The acutal name is OVOMALTine because it used to contain eggs = OVUM (Latin) and still contains MALT.

In the UK we call Oreos biscuits, not cookies. Please put cookie/biscuit in the hint. That's probably the only reason I didn't get it.

So what does the word "cookie" signify to you (if anything)? Just curious, I've always wondered. :)

Really? You honestly didn't know Americans called them cookies? Have you had no engagement with popular culture... ever? I'm not from the US, but the cookie thing is pretty common knowledge elsewhere, even if it isn't the term most widely used.
