Do we eat some masitas?

Masitas: the original way in which Santafesinos call cookies. Let us open the debate throughout the country.

How we talk

With all the naturalness of the world, we Santafesinos make ourselves some  mattes  and we say to our partner: “Do you spend some masitas to me? Or we go to the super with the lystite that says: “Milk, bread, sugar, MASITAS.”

It's normal. Those things that can be chocolate, vanilla, stuffed with cream, shaped like a ring, and other endless variants, are eaten at breakfast or snack and are called  masitas .

The problem of the Santafesinos appears when we leave  Santa Fe . With great disappointment, we find that practically throughout the rest of the country, masitas are called simply  sweet cookies  . Yes. Such (and only) as it says on the package. I mean, in the rest of the country they don't make it cool. We Santafesinos are otherwise friendly. And we even get friendly to name things. What were we going to imagine that in the other places the masitas don't tell them like that?

Following the problem we face when leaving Santa Fe, sometimes things get bravas. You're going to study in  Paraná  just, which is less than 30 kilometers away. You want to make friends with the  entrerrianos  in a round of mattes, you take out the package, offer masitas and, at best, you are looking with a mocking smile. From there up, everything: “What did you say? ”, “how are you going to tell them masitas? ”, bullyng from the first year of the race...

In some non-Santafesino kiosks, annoyed by our custom, they have come to stick posters denying us the possibility of calling the masitas by the name they always had for us.

Where else in the country do they tell sweet cookies like that? Leave us your comment. I know that we Santafesinos are not alone in the world!
