crisp fried salt pork*a*CORRECT
scrunchies*b*CORRECT, REGIONAL

CONT*Salt pork is cured pork fat. The crisp fried bits of salt pork that remain after the fat has been rendered are delicious in chowders, with greens, and mixed into biscuits.*a
OBS*scrunchies: Term used in Newfoundland.

I doubt there's a translation for "Poutine". It would be like tranlating bagel or pumpernickel.
