mmm... Lecke!

German for ‘mmm, yummy’ but somehow more evocative, maybe because pronouncing the ‘l’ involves the use of the tongue (rather like ‘relish’ or ‘lesbian’), although lips give the ‘m’ in yummy a sensuality too. (Also the name of a snack bar I once saw in a German railway station.}

Just thought I’d share this with you – feel free to give the phrase a test drive, where appropriate, and let me know how it goes...
