“A ‘haloodie’?” I hear you ask. What strange British-ism is this girl rolling out now? Well, the tongue-twisting term may have been coined in Britain, but ‘haloodie’ has not yet made the Oxford English Dictionary. No — this is a brand-new compound word with international appeal. ‘Haloodie’ refers to dedicated foodies from all walks of life who just so happen to follow a halal diet...accounting for a whopping quarter of the world’s population.
