this is a weird one for me.

my first response is to say that i pronounce it "jiblets", but when i actually read the word, i tend to say "giblet", probably because of seeing the letter "g".

i've noticed my wife also interchanges them, such as when we're talking about picking up cans of cat food. they like turkey and giblets, umm, jiblets.
