|English term or phrase: Savaoury Snacks|
|This word appears on a packet of a snack|
or simply 'chips'
-- In English the word savoury (that is how it is spelt) is frequently used to mean 'not sweet', and Danish simply does not make the distinction as often.
The Danish word 'krydderi' covers the whole range of seasoning, spices and herbs in English.
Danes serve sweetened vegetables and preserves like red cabbage or jam and 'sour' pickles with what the English call 'savoury' meat courses. Some English speakers would regard the 'sweet' items as far too sweet, but in practice they often taste fine, at least when you get used to them.
While modern Danes are developing a taste for herbs and spices, traditional Danish cuisine tends to be comparatively cautious in its use of them.

The word 'chips' is often used in Danish as a blanket term for potato crisps, cheese puffs, nachos etc., and these are frequently quite salty.
Mixtures like chevda or "Bombay mix" are rarely seen in Denmark outside specialist shops, but those would be called 'pikante' or 'krydrede snacks'.
