    In one of my free periods at school, I managed to get into a rather large arguament with a friend about scones... we managed to avoid coming to blows, and we decided that a poll would be the best way of determining who was right... so here we go...

    Which way round do jam and cream go on scones?

    Jam first, and then cream.

    Apparently it's jam then cream in Cornwall, and cream then jam for Devon. I prefer the Cornish way :D

    i've only had them with jam or butter, never cream before. of course the first time i had them was in ireland, and they may do it differently.

    It's harder to distribute the jame evenly when the cream is on first, so another vote for Cornwall...

    Jam then cream. Never seen it done any other way to be honest.

    I've never eaten a scone in my entire life. I wouldn't even recognize one if you put it on my plate.

    I've never seen cream being put on a scone. Here we use butter (plenty of butter) and maybe a light covering of jam.

    Oh...this is about the food. I thought it was some lewd sexual reference destined to be banned.

    Foolish American, a scone is kind of...biscuit, lets call it. It's circular, and is usually toasted, slightly crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. I'm surprised you haven't had them before, my mother gets them all the time, and we live in th same state and you live in a city.

    I like em plain, dammit! Although I've never put cream on one...

    Maybe he's just pronounces it differently?

    Ohhh... I've seen those at starbucks. Never been intrigued enough to try one. They just kinda looked like normal pastry things to me.

    But it's spelled the same way for both possible pronunciations.

    How about bagels... what do you put on bagels? I like cream cheese. Sometimes peanut butter or butter, but usually cream cheese, sometimes with jelly. (and by the way, who says BAY-gle, and who says BAG-le?)

    Either English strawberry jam or French cream cheese on American white bread. Never together.
