Manufacturer Confirms How To Pronounce Nice Biscuits

Manufacturer Confirms How To Pronounce Nice Biscuits

If you've ever wondered how Nice biscuits' name is pronounced - nice or niece are your options - then wonder no longer, because a biscuit manufacturer has cleared it up. Turns out it's said like 'niece' or 'neece'.

Aussie biscuit makers Arnotts responded to the question on Twitter, explaining: "Nice biscuits were named after the city in the South of France and pronounced the same as that city. They have been part of the Arnott's range since 1922."

So there you go.

Now, if you've always pronounced it that way and are quite shocked that anyone thinks it would be pronounced otherwise, let me tell you that a quick look on social media will open your eyes.

On a post from earlier this month about how to pronounce the sweet treats, one person wrote: "It's never once crossed my mind to pronounce it in any other way than, 'this biscuit tastes nice'."

I mean, yes, they do taste nice but, mate, no.

Another person chipped in: "Fancy colleague says nice (rhymes with dice) which is very confusing when she tells me there are nice biscuits in the staff kitchen and I find only those."

A third person said: "The French wouldn't touch these with a barge pole so I reckon 'nice' as in sugar and spice."

If you want a bit of biscuit trivia to add to your pub quiz knowledge - Nice are said to date back to around 1890. The coconut biscuits were a big hit with Queen Victoria - so much so, she apparently took a stash of them with her when she visited the French city of Nice and the name ended up sticking.

Now we've not got Nice nailed, are you sure you're pronouncing Aldi and Lidl correctly?

The German supermarkets shared with the shoppers the proper way to say their names and it might be different from what you've been saying.

If you've been saying Aldi as 'All-di', and dragging out the 'A' sound, you've been doing it all wrong. You should be saying 'Al-di' similar to how you say the name Alan.

Next up, Lidl - do you say 'Lid-uhl'? If so, then you're wrong. The supermarket says it should be pronounced like its German hometown 'Lee-dell'. The more you know.
