Small (food terminology) debate week!

Hello, all!

Considering the Tottenham Hotspur senior teams are out of session (for the women, unexpectedly), I’m trying out a new feature in the Hoddle all week.

Ramble of the Day

Welcome to the first edition of what I have now decided to call small debate week! This week, theme is ... British v. American food terminology!

I’m going to drop a poll each day of the week of a very innocent question related to that theme, and in a rare move, I also won’t share my opinion. Vote if you’d like, but really, I invite you to debate incessantly if you’d like. Let’s make winners out of something that nobody needs to win (but remember to keep things friendly)!

Now, for the poll.
