    What is a ‘pollo’ (sp?) ? Some kind of snack thing that was being requested at the start of session 1. Is it delicious?!

    That would be a Polo. It could be a type of car made by Volkswagen, but it is, in fact, a small circular mint confection.

    “Polo, the mint with the hole”

    Apparently “Tic Tacs” are made from the holes during the production process.

    I like this thread! I think it is cool! I think there must be loads of things that our American friends haven’t a clue about 😀

    There were certainly some words that were floating around in Texas that I was pretty unsure of with regards to the UK!

    Yeah… there are some things I don’t understand as well on occasion (being from Sweden), even though I’ve been studying in Scotland for two and a half years now.

    Yes, your snack names are confusing, but then again, so are ours…

    I believe that Lifesavers are flavour with Wintergreen. Which is nasty! Polos have peppermint which is nice 😀

    Lifesavers come in many flavors, my personal favorite would be butterscotch. There’s fruit flavors too.

    Don’t worry Lin, they’re cuter when you do them. They help you capture “essence of halfling.” 😆

    In Lindsay’s absence I will quench your thirst for knowledge.

    A very acceptable description of Hob Nobs can be found here. . . Biscuits
