(also chutty /ˈtʃʌti/)
noun[mass noun] Australian /NZ informal or dialect
- Thanks, it's not easy but I just always have chuddy in my mouth.
- I have recently moved to the USA, so you can image trying to be understood when I said I was ‘going down to the shop for some ginger and a packet of chuddy’, ginger of course meaning fizzy juice and chuddy as in chewing gum.
- ‘Don't spit your chuddy out on the footpath,’ she says, and I have to tell her that it's gum, not chuddy, a sidewalk, not a footpath, and that everybody does it.
1940s: probably an alteration of chewed.
