Foodie assistance

I know some knowledgeable foodies lurk in recipes so I'm hoping you can assist.
Neogolisms are newly coined words or expressions - made up words. An example would be Kumfs . . . . However, my students are doing food advertising and we are trying to think of food related neogolisms - we have come up with cronuts, whoopie pies and sliders . . . can you people think of any others? Neogolisms are not substitute words like chevon for goat. Love to have some more to add to our list

The cronut guy has now brought out the "Waffogato" (combination of Waffle and "affogato", a type of coffee drink). Then there's banoffee, Tofurkey, Soyogurt, Not Dogs (veggie hot dogs). there are probably a few more vegetarian ones but I can't think of any.

I have an as-yet untried recipe for 'Quiffins' - little quiche made in muffin tins. :-))

Edited to add another a couple of thoughts. Craisins and Scroggin. :-))

Hate to be that person, but it's "neologism."

We called an Icecream Soda a Spider when we were kids, does that count? Fizzy drink and icecream together

Chef_rainrain1, Feb 27, 8:49 pm

We call honey - beejam (not sure if that's what you mean tho))

An aside: I worked in a tearooms and an ice cream soda was the fizzy drink poured over the ice cream, a spider was when it was whipped on the milk shake machine - two different drinks :)
