    A party in one´s mouth

    Hello,


    Can anybody tell me if the phrase a party in one´s mouth (meaning a very good food) is a common English idiom?


    Thank you very much.

    I've heard it but I've never used it.

    Not common, but used.

    Advertising-speak, invented by clever copywriters for advertisements, but not actually used by real people.

    I've never heard or seen it.

    Try adding a mouthful of sparkling water/wine to a mouthful of popping candy (that's Space Dust for those of us around in the 80s in the UK). Now that's a party in your mouth!

    I heard Gordon Ramsay say it in his tv show The Kitchen´s Nightmares. Because I had never heard it before, I tried to find more about the phrase and eventually ended up here asking for some help.

    As you can see from the fact that some of us have heard it and some of us have not, it's not very common. There is nothing wrong with it, though.

    Note my corrections above. We capitalise "TV". The title of the show is "Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares".

    I think that must be what we call 'pop rocks' here in the US. They were popular here about the same time, then kind of died out. However, they've coming back in fashion again, as I've started seeing them in limited stores, so 'yay' for nostalgia.

    I used to do the same thing, except with pop (particularly Sprite). Looking back, I'm not really sure why I didn't die of diabetes before graduating high school.

    I also noticed Nerds are coming back as well, so there seems to be a revival of 80's era candy.

    Nerds the candy, I mean. People Nerds never left.
