[1]Our partner Foodbeast [2] shares breaking food news, trendsetting recipes, and more with us. Today, Brandi Milloy and Elie Ayrouth are clearing up an important matter: how to pronounce brands like Sapporo, Orangina, and Hoegaarden the right way [3].

All right, all right, hot shot, so you know how to pronounce gnocchi [4]. You know the "h" in hors d'oeuvres is silent. You know quinoa has two syllables [5], not three. But unless your lingual skills are just extra cunning, chances are there's at least one food or drink word out there you're still a little hesitant to say.

Take brand names like Barilla pasta, for instance. Is it bah – REE – yah, like Maria? Or bah – RIL – lah, like gorilla? Is it Sa – POE – roe or SA – poe – roe? Don't even get us started on sriracha and Nutella (betcha didn't know you were probably saying those wrong too).

Luckily we decided to figure it out ourselves and look like idiots, so you no longer have to.

That's right, it's commonly mispronounced food words part 2, y'all, "brand names edition." Leh. Go:
