I would LOVE to be able to buy them in the store. You can't buy them in CA. We used to use them all the time when we were kids, they're so cool!

How boring life would be if I were afraid to do anything for fear of being sued.

Get over it and use them! They're pretty! icon_smile.gif

That is why i don't eat hot dogs!

I have breakable teeth so I suck on the dragees, but I let my kids eat them. I put them on cakes and I think they are super cute.

How do you pronounce it? I say "drag-E", but i had this super stuck-up cakey boss that laughed in my face and said "draw-zhay" I almost hate her, and she made me cry once, but I want to know if she was right!
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Yes, she was definitely right.

I have accidentally laughed our loud when students said "drag-EE" to me too, but only because it's humorous when I hear it said that way...and they laughed too. icon_wink.gif

I have also been afraid to use them even tho I think they are beautiful. I see so many cakes decorated with them but had read that they should be removed before comsuming the cake. Who would go through all the trouble of taking them off the cake before they eat it? They are a bit difficult to find in my area. I may break down and get some. They're soooo pretty!!!!!

Yep, it's definitely "draw-zhay". Even if you hate the broad, she's got the pronunciation right.

I love the way they look and use them all the time. I hate morons who sue for stupid things.

(raising her hand slowly from the back of the room) I also used to call them drag-EE's until I heard it pronounced properly.

It's also a family joke about how I "pronounce 'em as I see 'em". In 2nd grade, I called it Reader's DIG-est instead of Readers DIE-gest. Hubby still laughs at the time I saw the word Potpouri (PO-purr-EE) and pronounced it pot-POR-ee! icon_lol.gif

My then-jr-high-school aged daughter was helping me with a spelling list (I was in a fund-raising spelling bee) and she was having a problem with one of the words. She finally brightened and say, "Oh! I got it!" and gave me the word "Common Cement". I had no idea what she was talking about until I looked at the word and told her, "It's commencement!" icon_lol.gif

I haven't even looked for them since I read what it says on the outside of the bottle! I'm afraid too. I know it may sound silly, but until they find out just what is causing cancer and Alzheimer's--- I'm leary! Leary or leery? Anyway!

Yeah, I thought it was drag-ee until I looked it up! I was just glad I didn't say it out loud to anyone and embarrass myself before I figured it out. I tell customers how to say it, and tell them it looks like drag-ee but is pronounced draw-zhay.

I had a Sociology teacher in college tell the class that conscience and conscious were spelled differently but pronounced the same way. Um, no. Of course, he was the same dork who gave us the definition of murder simply as "killing someone without their permission". First of all, really? And secondly, what college freshman doesn't already know what murder is anyway? I dropped that class. It was just too stupid.

I had a teaching assistant pronounce dichotomy as DICK-ta-moan-e instead of die-COT-a-me. Took me a week to puzzle out what she was talking about.

I heard a news story about the Galapagos Islands where the guy said galla-PEG-os instead of ga-LOP-a-gos.

I had a friend tell me about a plane crash in the Potomac River, POT-o-mac.

I don't have much trouble with pronunciation, but when I was in the second grade I wrote a story about how "knee grows" were the same as everyone else and we should be good to them (It was 1961 when Negro was a more commonly used term). My mom still laughs about that.

OMG Ruth, do you live amongst inbreds? That is just ridiculous. Hello...4th grade English anyone?

I once had a professor snicker at me when I mispronounced ad infinitum... but damn, that was Latin, not English. LOL

LOL! Sometimes I think so. So much for higher education, huh?

When I was in 7th grade, I wrote a poem about my bedroom being messy and said it looked like a hoar. (pronounced it whore.) (I didn't have a dictionary on hand when I wrote it, and I needed something that rhymed with door. =/ )

Some girls came up after and, teasingly, asked me if I knew what that word meant. I said, "Yeah!"

Eventually, I realized the word I was looking for was "horror".

Never made that mistake again.
