Care for some Sherbe(r)t?
This past Saturday, some friends and I attended New York City's "Scooper Bowl", an all-you-can-eat ice cream festival. You can check the event out in Boston this weekend.
In between sampling flavors, we discussed the proper pronunciation of a certain fruity frozen dessert.
So, should we say "sherbet" or "sherbert"? Purists will insist that "sherbet" is correct, but Merriam-Webster.com states that "sherbert" is a "fully established variant spelling".
How do you pronounce the name of this treat? Comment below with your answer.
