Merriam-Webster (finally) Adds "Sriracha" As An Official Word

In a move where most of the world is probably thinking, 'wait, this is just happening now?!" Merriam-Webster has finally added "Sriracha" as an official word in the English vocabulary.

 

Huy Fong Sriracha

Huy Fong Foods, a California based company who has gained a cult-like following due to the popularity based around their Sriracha sauce, initially brought Sriracha onto the US scene in the early 80's. Since then, Sriracha, primarily Huy Fong's version, has gained popularity and is now a household name throughout the United States, and much of the rest of the world as well. 

In addition to 'Sriracha,' a few other necessary words Merriam-Webster added to their list were:

  • Pregame - drinking alcohol before an event or activity (such as a party or a night out)
  • Bibimbap - a Korean dish of rice with cooked vegetables, usually meat, and often a raw or fried egg
  • California Roll -a type of sushi roll containing avocado, cucumber, and cooked crabmeat or imitation crabmeat with a wrapping of seaweed and rice 
  • Froyo - frozen yogurt

And last but not least, the definition of Sriracha (drum roll please) is :

  • Sriracha - a pungent sauce that is made from hot peppers pureed with usually garlic, sugar, salt, and vinegar and that is typically used as a condiment.

 

Hey Merriam-Webster, about time....
