What does num mean?


When something is delicious, a person might remark, "Num!" It is similar to when people say, "yum" or "mmmhh" after eating or drinking something tasty.

For example, you may pass by your favorite restaurant while driving and say "Num!" aloud to your friend. Or a foodie you follow on Instagram may post a picture of a fantastic dish and you comment, "Num! I've always wanted to try that!"

While not as common, people may also use num outside of eating or drinking when satisfied. For example, a person may post an excellent stat line achieved by one of their fantasy players with the caption "num" to show their satisfaction with their performance.
