New food words in the OED Login/Join

The Tribune posted these "foodie" words that have been added to the OED:

Beer o’clock: "Are you having another beer?" "Every hour is beer o’clock during football games."

Cakeage (not to be confused with a woman wearing 10 pounds of makeup): “Did the restaurant seriously add a cakeage fee to my bill for this birthday cake I brought in?”


Cat cafe: "Do you want to get a cup of coffee at the cat cafe? Or is it like a dog park and you can't get in without a cat?"

Cheffy: "You made your own ketchup for this burger? That's so cheffy of you."

Cidery: "His kiss tasted cidery — he definitely stole that last bottle of Redd's from my fridge."

Cupcakery: “I was hoping a burrito place would move in next door, but it's just another one of those cupcakeries with $4 cupcakes.”

Hangry: "I didn't mean to snap at you. I haven't eaten lunch yet, and I'm super hangry."

Snackable: "Take these chips away from me. They're way too snackable."

Wine o’clock: “I just had the worst day at work. Pop open that rose, because it is definitely wine o'clock."

Do you use any of them? I suppose I might use snackable, but that's it.

I' probably use cidery in the same way as I'd use beery in similar circumstances.


Build a man a fire and he's warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he's warm for the rest of his life.

I've heard "beer thirty" but not "beer o'clock."
I eschew $4.00 cupcakes; it's a price I can't swallow.

I agree, Geoff, about those expensive cupcakes. Finally they are not as hot as they were (big cupcake stores sprouting up all over) so maybe the prices will fall. I do like a good red velvet cupcake from time to time. Wink
