AIBU to hate cute words for food?

As in adults talking to each other saying they enjoy “a couple of squares of choccy” or “a couple of biccies” or some “veggies”.
And the word “nibbles” as in “she put some nibbles out on the table”.
Sounds so tossy to me.

Think you need to get out more.

If that’s all you’ve got to worry about you’re not doing so bad

I agree with you OP. I also hate the word ‘yum’ or ‘yummy’ in any context other than trying to convince a baby to try a new food.

Nibbles is annoying but I’m quite grumpy
Anything euphemistic annoys me - just call it food

How dare you start such a frivolous thread? You should be thinking about Brexit, global warming and veganism! Only!

YANBU I hate this, and anyone over the age of 10 who says "yummy" angry

Chill out ... perhaps you need more rumpy pumpy 😜😁

I have to say that I agree there are bigger things to worry about, but my MIL asking what I want for 'din dins' makes my teeth itch!

SardineJam Sat 23-Feb-19 17:36:46

Or talking about food and saying 'nom nom'🤢

PositiveVibez Sat 23-Feb-19 17:37:08

Can I ad NomNom

Delish envy (not envy)

Hot4Holes Sat 23-Feb-19 17:37:17

Can’t say it bothers me too much. You’d probably hate me, I call dinner din dins occasionally!

user1493413286 Sat 23-Feb-19 17:38:47

Yeah I agree actually but then I also don’t like it when people refer to “hubby”

A few of my friends call ketchup "dip dip" and I hate it!

woollyheart Sat 23-Feb-19 17:41:34

But is is quite fun offering people chockywocky and seeing them fume!😀

londonloves Sat 23-Feb-19 17:42:47

You'd hate my house. We have yummy lunchies and din dins!

MaggieAndHopey Sat 23-Feb-19 17:45:38

I was about to tell you YABU but actually I hate 'nibbles' too. Really twee and suburban, and also reminds me of rabbits. Weirdly I don't mind 'din dins' though I would never say it myself. Dip dip though - what the fuck?

TidyDancer Sat 23-Feb-19 17:46:42

I hate nom nom nom. DP says/types this and I feel murderous when he does it.

ShinyMe Sat 23-Feb-19 17:47:53

Sammies and sammidges are the worst. I have a friend who used to talk about having hammy sammies for lunch, and it drove me up the bloody wall.

@flumpybear - it’s nudey prod in this house grin.

flumpybear Sat 23-Feb-19 17:48:30

UG!! Nom nom is fucking awful! And also hate people saying 'want a bot bot' to babies!!! 😱

flumpybear Sat 23-Feb-19 17:48:57

Lol @Shockers 😆

The word "tasty" makes me cringe.
