Wondrous Words Wednesday

April 22, 2015

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where you can share new words that you’ve encountered or spotlight words you love.  Feel free to get creative!   If you want to play along, grab the button, write a post and come back and add your link to Mr. Linky!

I only found one word last week and it was in We Were Liars by E. Lockhart.

1. penuche – “We place a big order at Murdick’s Fudge: chocolate, chocolate walnut, peanut butter, and penuche.”

According to Wikipedia, penuche “is a fudge-like candy made from brown sugar, butter, and milk, using no flavorings except for vanilla. Penuche often has a tannish color, and is lighter than regular fudge.  It is formed by the caramelization of brown sugar; thus, its flavor is said to be reminiscent of caramel.”


What words do you want to celebrate today?

    I read We Were Liars – and still had no idea what penuche is. The memory is not so stellar.

    I knew penuche was a caramel like candy, but I have never tasted it. I like caramel so I would no doubt enjoy it.

    That was one I didn’t look up! Thanks for doing it for me. I can’t wait to hear what you thought of We Were Liars – so well written, but I’m not sure I liked the ending.

    I love the smell of vanilla. I’ve heard this word. Haven’t baked with brown sugar in a long time.
