Once I've Been Asked to Translate "You Tiao"

Yes once I've Been Asked to Translate "You Tiao(油条)"! Can you tell me what is it called in English???

My friend said is there a english name for 油条?? Because he had been asked by other uncles and aunties. They flamed him by saying "A degree holder also don't know what is 油条 called in English? What for you study until degree holder!"

That day he asked me back the same thing, but I wasn't able to answer because this English-name 油条 has been heard way too long ago. We know there is a english name and we had heard it before but due to the reason we did not keep on using or recall the word thus we forgotten it....

Can't blame us right? Because we're living in a multiracial country and the 油条 seller don't speak english okay!!!!!

So let me share with you this word for 油条 is " CRULLER "

Cruller meaning extracted from WikiPedia
A traditional cruller (or twister) is a twisted, oblong, fried pastry made of dough somewhat like that of a cake doughnut, often topped with plain powdered sugar; powdered sugar mixed with cinnamon; or icing.

A related song sang by JJ, Dou Jiang You Tiao (豆浆油条), so remember to have cruller with soya =P

IF you find this information useful please share with others. Thank You.
