Poll question: How do you pronounce 'caramel'
How many syllables?

Two: ("car-ml")
Three: ("car-a-mel")
More? Fewer?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. Again, I think a song is involved
"Carml coated popcorn, peanuts and a prize, that's what you get with Cracker Jacks!"

Madison Ave has really messed up our language

3. Two syllables, but ...
... it's "car-mel", not "car-ml".

6. car-ml
It's the way I've always pronounced it. I've lived most of my life in western Nebraska, and everyone I know here says car-ml too.
