Lesson Transcript

Hi, everyone! I'm Rosa. Today we'll be doing 10 foods that will kill you faster. So let's start!
1. bebidas energéticas "energy drinks"
La biblioteca estaba llena de latas de bebidas energéticas."The library was full of energy drinks' cans."
So yeah, a lot of people drink energy drinks while they are studying for their finals. I don't know, I don't really like taking them because I become so nervous that I cannot focus on what I'm studying. So yeah, in the end, it's not really, it doesn't really help me.
2. caramelo "candy"
Si comes muchos caramelos, se te caerán los dientes."If you eat a lot of candy your teeth will fall."
I love, like, coffee, coffee candy. We call it caramelo, the ones that are like hard, most of the times they are wrapped in plastic, and have like two ruffles at the end.
3. carne procesada "processed meat"
Nunca sabes lo que hay dentro de la carne procesada. "You never know what's inside of processed meat."
In a supermarket, they, I mean the process me is supposed to be like the lowest quality meat, because they put some flavor inside something so people don't notice it not it's like worst quality than the other one.
4. comida congelada "frozen meal"
Mi madre prepara muchas comidas congeladas. "My mother prepares a lot of frozen meals."
My mother kind of freezes everything, she works, so she makes a huge pot of whatever, she puts it in the freezer and then we can eat with that, like, for weeks. So I’ll have, like, some of my mother's frozen meal.
5. fideos instantáneos "instant noodles"
En España se están haciendo famosos los fideos instantáneos. "In Spain instant noodles are getting more famous."
Some years ago you will only find ramen in these, like, Chinese stores, but now in every supermarket you can find ramen, and there are Spanish brands making that. Globalization.

Cuando voy al cine, llevo palomitas de microondas en el bolso. "When I go to the cinema, I carry microwave popcorn in my bag."
It’s cheaper.

9. alcohol "alcohol"
Él bebe alcohol por la mañana, por la tarde y por la noche. "He drinks alcohol in the morning, in the afternoon and at night."
I think it's ok, just don't overdo it.
10. sirope, which means "syrup"
Me encantan las tortitas con sirope de caramelo. "I love pancakes with caramel syrup."
It's not very good, it’s all sugars, but well, a little bit is not that bad, right?

Hola Steven,


Gracias por tu comentario.

Both are correct. but "papatas" is use in Spain and "papas" in Latin America.

For "snack food" we have a few option depending the context. They are tentempié, refrigerio, comidas rápida.

The first two mean food you eat between meals and the last one literally means fast food.

Saludos,

Carla

In the video Rosa uses "patatas fritas" for potato chips. In the vocabulary section, "papas fritas" is used. Are both acceptable depending on the country? What is used for "French fries"? What are the words for "snack food"?
