What is delish short for?


Food that is "delish" is delicious. Delish can also be used to describe other delicious, enjoyable, or attractive items - such as media, clothing, and people (see also: snacc).

Young women are most likely to shorten delicious to delish, while discussing something wonderful they've encountered. Delish is much more emphatic than delicious, so you should call something delish only if you truly mean it.


Thanks for the food! It was delish!
