This is what we have here in Portland. I don't think anyone calls them bubblers unless they are referring to their proper name. Simon Benson was a Norwegian immigrant who first lived in Wisconsin before moving to Oregon. Guess it is a Wisconsin thing

Yes, we're the same - Jello would be a dessert. Jams or jelly would be what we would put on toast.

Hubby eats his french fries with mayonnaise but apparently that is very common in the Netherlands.

You'd love Utah then, most fast food places here have "Fry Sauce" and that is exactly what it is, mayo and ketchup.

I lived in SLC for a couple of years as a teen. Here a few places have fry sauce but not many. My first "real" job was at DerWeinerschnitzel (sp?)on State Street in SLC. Maybe that's where we learned of it?

I had the same thought, I was confused. But I think maybe the "Pa-JA-mas" could be like "Pa-Jahhh-mas". I don't know, that's all I could think of.

Exactly the same.

Although I will confess to saying Libry instead of library when I say it quickly. Library is the kind of word you have to pronounce quite carefully to get it right.
