  1. In Spanish, we also say that a meal is to die for when it’s really tasty. But there’s another expression too: it’s for licking your fingers (está para chuparse los dedos). Curious, isn’t it?

    We say: “It’s finger licking good!” That’s similar right?

    Thanks so much for your comment! I’m glad you stopped by my web site!

    Hey Yvonne.

    I stopped by your web site, it’s amazing!
    “to die for” it is a common expression in Brazil. Feijoada is to die for! But it is so fatty. 😉

    Hi there! Sadly, most things that are ‘to die for’ are really fatty and bad for us. 🙂 LOL! But then that makes them soooooo good! Thanks for visiting my site!

    I’ve read all the olders, and known tons of things. I’ll visit those pages again & again in order to soak up. Thanks!

    to die for, we say “as loved as the death”, also say “as wanted as a hand comes out from a throat”. It’s just funny! LOL!

  6. Yvonne says:

    Oh I really like this one: “as wanted as a hand comes out from a throat.” I love how different languages all express the same thing, yet slightly different. Very interesting. Thanks so much for your comment!
