Can't I have both?

My thoughts entirely.

Bamba is belly botton in Lithuanian

Bissli is salty, not savoury...

The Dead Sea isn't as salty as a LOL player

It does have crazy amounts of sodium, but it doesn't really taste that way to me

What is the distinction you are drawing here? In American parlance, snacks are generally either sweet or savory (i.e. salty). For instance, I am definitely a sweet snacker, whereas my wife is a savory snacker.

Ah, I interpreted ‘savoury’ as umami.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamesTWils

Some Americans now use the term for that too.

אין מסיבה בלי במבה בארץ. בדרך ככל, יש גם במבה בגרמניה. קאורים אותה Erdnussflips.

In Italian "bamba" is slang for cocaine. Every time I hear Israelis mention it I chuckle.
