    Let us not forget that, as part of the JC Community, this Pancakes and Waffles forum is for everybody. To which end, some sort of clarification is required for the benefit of those users not from the USA, in order to allow the happy discussion of pancakes and waffles to proceed without unfortunate misunderstandings.

    So, if you would be so kind, please examine the following images, and reply with 1) approximately where in the world you are and 2) your local or national term for each foodstuff depicted.

    Users for whom English is a second language are encouraged to give both their native and first-choice English words.
