Talk about whatever you want in here.


#2

In the east, we call bread rolls ‘yeastlings’. But you never hear us banging on about it!!!


#3

I hope this is true


#4

Where I come from in Scotland we call Rolls, Bread Loafs and Bread Loafs, Rolls. So when people from ‘out of town’ ask at the local Chat and Chew for a Chip Roll they get an awful shock (and not just at the £15 price tag) when the bell rings and the whole bread loaf hollowed out on the top and filled with chips is brought to them!!!


#5

I heard in Germany they call bread weisswasseryeastofflenbröt. Confirm/deny


#6

Incorrect, they are known as ze yeastlings


#7

We call 'em chazwozzers.


#8

and then you bang on about some slightly geometrically alternative pig in pigskin like you are kings of the world!


#9

Obviously not true, they would spell it with a capital letter because it’s a noun and use the ß.

Weißwaßeryeastofflenbrot


#10

About bread products!


#11

Being northern, i didn’t agree until I saw pikelets. No need.


#12

quirky names for things is all they have really, so i don’t mind


#13

can we stop doing this every other month?

gonna say that only people who hate northerners or the scottish have a problem with this


#14

It’s just a title, this thread is for anything you want it to be and YOU are making it about hatred, rationality and bread products. Shame on you.


#15

Not every town has to be named after a cake!


#16

i’m stopping this thread from escalating into fighting. SHAME ON YOU balonz for being such a stirrer.


#17

#18

are they gonna have to invent loads of different words for all the new gluten free products and stuff?

who organises this stuff? bet they’re in a panic.


#19

for as long as they’ve been avaliable on prescription they have been called ROLLS

products in the shop vary from ROLLS, BAPS, BUNS


#20

southerners just call it tiger bread
