I am interested to hear what the Americans say for things that are not sweet.
The British use savoury, but I think there is no generalized expression for this in America. If I read a Crepe menu and one section lists fillings with cheese or zucchini, In America one wouldn't be additionally informed that they are savoury ( or savory). Or from an example above, "I don't want cookies, I want something savoury, like potato chips." I think an American would say " I don't want anything sweet have you got any potato chips or something like that?"
So the expression in America for things that are not sweet must be 'not sweet'.
Does anyone have an opinion on this?
