How do you pronounce Nougat

I would say 'noo-garr' (and believe I am quite clearly right!) but DH insists it's 'nugget' (like a chicken nugget). I have heard several people locally use the same pronunciation - could it be a legitimate regional dialect or is everyone local wrong?

RubyLennoxExists Sun 11-Mar-18 15:55:42

I pronounce it the same as you

It is noo-garr. Deffo.

No-garr or noo-get are the two I have heard. Deffinerly not nugget.

Noo garr here too

WomanEmpire Sun 11-Mar-18 15:57:38

Same as you. DGM says nugget - drives me mad!

noo-gar unless it is a double nougat from the ice cream van then it's nugget. Possibly a local area thing!

Dh and I have the exact same disagreement. He's from the north of England and I'm Welsh so maybe it's a regional thing.

Nugget here.

But I am aware it's probably wrong.

I also can't stop saying 'chimley' for chimney.

I once asked for nougarr at a sweet stall at some attraction, and the woman shouted: "What the 'eck's a doodah, duck?" blush

I then asked for nugget, as if she'd misheard me blush blush

I've been to embarrassed to use the correct pronunciation since, I felt like such a posh twat.

And it's marshmallow. Never ever marshmellow.

halfwitpicker Sun 11-Mar-18 16:06:05

All my Scottish friends say nugget

Frustratedboarder Sun 11-Mar-18 16:13:18

It's an age thing! For anyone my age group or older (40s) in any advertising when we were growing up it Was pronounced 'nugget' in this country, it was only in later years that it was changed to Nougat (as it's a mainland European word originally I think). I call it nougat but it does feel pretentious to my ears! grin
