How Do You Pronounce These Eight Foods?

Are there any words you pronounce differently than other people,?  Maybe because of where you grew up, or how your parents said them?

Someone took a bunch of food words people say differently, and did a poll to find out who’s in the majority . . .

1.  Do you say PEE-can . . . or peh-CAHN?

The Result:  62% say peh-CAHN.

 

2.  Is it CAR-mull . . . or CARE-uh-mel?

The Result:  57% say it CARE-uh-mel.

 

3.  MAN-aise . . . or MAY-oh-naise?

The Result:  It’s close, but 52% say MAN-aise.

 

4.  ALL-mund . . . or AH-mund?

The Result:  79% DO pronounce the “L.”

 

5.  Milk . . . or MELK?

The Result:  Only 8% say it like there’s an “E” in there.

 

 

6.  OR-ange . . . or AHR-ange?

The Result:  89% say OR-ange.

 

 

7.  APP-ricot . . . or APE-ricot?

The Result:  64% say APP-ricot.

 

 

8.  BAY-gle . . . or BAGGLE.  (???)

The Obvious Result:  95% of people say BAY-gle.  (But yes, “baggle”is a thing.)

  • 10am - 2pm | I am the resident radio geek here at BOB. I live, breathe, and eat radio. However, when I’m not on the radio you can find me searching for a local hole-in-the-wall pizza joint, walking the streets of downtown at night in search of fun local music to listen to, going to movies, an occasional trip to Wendover, traveling, exploring, or just chilling at home with my little family. I LOVE talking on the phone! Hit me up on our studio line at 877-807-1007, or on your social media site of choice!
