Can confirm Welsh people say scran sometimes, probably ubiquitous due to television/internet/it being a really really widely used slang term.

Can confirm. Have also heard jock used, no idea if this is Yorkshire specific.

It’s common worldwide. The German equivalent is scrän

Always used scran as a generic term for food, not a particular meal.

I’ll put you down for informal blowout.

Your spreadsheet, your business.

I first heard scran in Sheffield.

sounds like a lyric

Prefer snap but scran works for me on occasion. Bit hard sounding though. Snap is softer

I really need to get some snap right now actually

Rhythm Is A Dancer - Scran!

scran crackle pop

Just went up to the brewhouse office and the brewer said he was just ‘having some scran’ (he’s 21 so might be trendy now) so maybe it has reached Devon.

Grub is the correct slang for food
