And before I get trashed ( allready see it coming) I dont mean anything by it and it has nothing to do specificaly with being american. It is just what I noticed and was very much surprised by. The extremely enthusiatic reactions over and popularity of some products that over here people think "meh" nothing special.
(btw personally I dont get why like half of the planet gets excited over any type of chocolate anyway, it is ok, it doesnt taste bad. But that is about it for me haha, apparently I miss that "it-makes-me-feel-fantastic gene" haha
Interesting to finally have a picture to go with some of the other names (twnkie, poptart, smore etc)
the way you obtain the knowledge can matter though. DO you know them cause you ve eaten it all yourself reguarly, or because you have heard others about it.
And not that we use the same word as in english, but we are conscious that we are saying an english word at that moment. I guess because it is not really a part of our christmas traditions.
looked it up, what we call zuurstokken you call stick candy or candy sticks.
Estonian comes closes with pulgakomm. But no other has a name that remotely looks like polkagris.
all the other scandinavian names mean sugar/candy stick/reed(rod)
I've always know Kinder is German for 'chocolate
Lmao you really thought that?
I dont say this to make fun of or put them down, I just thought that it was funny and really surprising
