Worstenbroodjes

(Like cold hot dogs, but good.)

Never heard of them, but that oodje bit looks suspiciously Dutch to me. Surely a "cold hot dog" should be called a warm dog??

Ja, worst is sausage, brood is bread and je on the end of the word is a diminutive. So a broodje is literally a little bread, but here that means any kind of small bread roll, sandwich or pastry thing with filling. And the worstenbroodje is only warm when you get it early from the bakkerij :)

Amaya, thanks for the Dutch info. I knew about the -je diminutive. I've bought coffe flavoured sweets in Amsterdam, called hopjes. Still have some around. They never go soft and last for eternity. :lol:

In Romanian the diminutive ending is -uță as in micuță mea - my little one (mic means small), and bread is pâine, similar to French but pronounced very differently.

I can't think of anything I have bought beginning with P in the supermarket so the next one is up to someone else.

How come you know so much about language Mihaela? Are you Romanian?
I love languages and know a little more than the average person but I am no expert, just enjoy them.

Amaya, rulz: The last letter of the last word becomes the first letter of the next word of items sold in a supermarket

APTTM: The Management (Rule Enforcement Division) have asked me to remind you in no uncertain terms that using asterisks in place of letters contravenes Section 892, Sub-section я (grammar), Claws 7.1(k), Paragraph 39iii(a), of said Rules. Furthermore, Sub-section й (spelling) decrees that Rules is spelt thus: Rules, NOT rulz. The lack of capital R suggests disrespect, and the z slovenliness/laziness.
