I just had an interesting conversation with my NZ colleague regarding some sweets on the table. I turned down her offer, saying it was too 'cloying' for me, which got her stumped. After I explained what I was trying to say, she said that she would say 'gluggy' instead. I searched online and found the definition for 'gluggy' is 'Liquid and viscous; moving slowly when poured. The jelly was not yet set, but quite gluggy', which doesn't seem to be the right word. So, I'd like to know what native speakers think about these two words.
Thank you in advance.
Kind regards, Danny
