Shalom Tom and Roi, lol love the pig out word in hebrew! And it's a verb and can be conjugated!

As far as Bamba goes,it's just like cheese doodles or cheese curls or cheese balls but instead of cheese powder on the outside it has peanut powder. We Americans are not used to it, but it has an interesting taste and can be an acquired taste. My grandson eats them all the time!

Hi Tom,


Thanks for posting!


Well, I'm not sure what peanut brittle is, but Bamba is a peanut snack (like a kind of fluffy chips), that is very loved in Israel. Could you really order some in order to try it? Outside Israel, I believe it can be found in Kosher supermarkets, that have many imported foods from Israel.


For “pig out” we can say "להתחזר" - (from the root חזיר - pig) but it's not specific for junk food. ?


Yours,

Roi

I found Bamba on line - and where I can buy it here. It is not at all like peanut brittle.


How do you say "pig out on junk food" in Hebrew? You're making me hungry.

Bamba במבה sounds a lot like peanut brittle. Are they the same thing? Or similar?


I am not sure I am getting all these tastes straight. I'm suggesting you send 100 kilos of each type of snack to each of your listeners to be sure that we are properly exposed to this aspect of Israeli culture.

Thank you, Yaara-yes I have seen the chocolate cow on the elite bars! I'll have to take a closer look now. The chocolate composition, I believe is the same for all their products, so why do some have the cow and others don't? I love the slogan and was able to understand it without translation!

Hi Shelley,


I'm sorry, I confused you - Cow chocolate is actually a brand of chocolate produced by Elite. In the 1950's, Elite put an illustration of a cow on the wrapping of their chocolate bar, and that's how the product got its name. Today it's one of Elite's leading products, and it includes chocolate spread and all kinds of snacks. The slogan of the product is !הוּא תָמִיד אִיתְךָ - שוֹקוֹלָד פָּרָה.


Have a sweet day :wink:


Sincerely,

Yaara

Ahh. My sentence is general so I shouldn't use "et" which makes it specific. I understand.

We have Elite chocolate from Israel here but not chocolate cow. I assumed you were referring to Elite chocolate as chocolate cow so now I understand that this is a different brand. I want to taste it! How does it compare to Elite? Which is creamier? Why hasn't it made it's way to the U.S.?

grill must be a barbeque flavor-sounds delicious! I'll look for it in the supermarket!

Not sure your words in the parenthesis will make it clear as a brand name,( a famous brand name for an Israeli chocolate bar) might be a better choice, or something like that.

As always, thank you for your help.

Hi Shelley,


Thank you for posting.

"שוקולד פרה" is a brand name, and it's very famous in Israel. As you said, non-Israelis are not familiar with this brand, so we will ad an explanation in the vocabulary list in the lesson materials:

Cow chocolate (a famous Israeli chocolate bar)

I personally love bisli, but I must warn you: it is more of a tortilla-chips snack than a granola bar... Super addictive, not very healthy (to say the least).

אני אשאל אם החבר שלי אוהב ביסלי

My recommended bisli flavor is grill :smile:

Chocolate cow is a literal translation which americans and maybe others are not familiar. However, chocolate bar, is an understandable translation in the U.S. Please include that as a secondary translation. Otherwise we believe you are referring to chocolate shaped into a cow which specialty shops here in the U.S. do.

I have never tasted biseli-I always thought it was a kind of granola.

Loved your exchange below on Krembo! The two of you have spicy personalities! and definitely a sweet tooth.

אני אשהל אם החבר שלי אוהב את הביסלי I will ask if my friend likes bisili.
