School Lunches on the Morning Show.

One of  my favorite parts of the morning show is when I get to read the school lunch menus for the day.  I like to add my own special twists to it and comment on some of the food.  I consider myself a man who likes to eat and I am surprised when I run across something that I have yet to try.  However, there were two times this week when I didn't have a clue what a food item was.  Lucky for me the viewers were listening and sent me emails with descriptions of the foods I was confused about and where I could get them.  On Thursday, there was a food item called "crispitos."  I had never heard this term before, but thanks to the emails I received I now know they are just another term for "taquitos", or very similar.  Then on Friday, one school was having "manwiches" for lunch.  Again, a term I had never heard.  Again my email filled up with people telling me they were sloppy joes.  Now I have had hundreds of sloppy joes in my life but never heard the term "manwich."  I guess you learn something new everyday.

So those are two food items that have at least two different names.  What are some other foods that would fall into that category?  I can only think of crisps and chips are chips and fries respectively in England.
