No sé brazo de gitana, pero brazo de reina es lo más rico del mundo. En Chile se hace con manjar (dulce de leche).

¿"Brazo de reina" y "brazo de gitana" son alimentos?

Do you mean "brazo de gitano"? This is a "brazo de gitano" (there are individual ones, too). I don't know if it is the same that "brazo de reina":

Chocolate, castaña, crema de limón, o cualquera crema dulce.
Alguien debe inventar un brazo de gitano/reina salado relleno de una crema de ajo tomates y cebollas y el obligatorio queso mozzarella.

Er- well, usually.
Well I guess that depends on how errr 'spunky' you want the embrace to be...

En holandés se llama 'omhelzing' ('helz' se ha derivado de la palabra 'hals' lo que significa 'el cuello') u 'omarming' ('arm' = brazo, 'om'=cerca).

Aquí son de nata, crema o trufa (chocolate con nata y mantequilla).

Apruebo la moción de un brazo de gitano salado (con mucha mozzarella, pero sin salsa de ajos)
