☆  tidbit  豆知識


A tidbit is an interesting piece of information. This word is commonly used to refer to gossip or hot information, and you might hear it used with “juicy” as in, “a juicy tidbit” meaning a scandalous piece of gossip / information.

However, it can also just mean interesting information. For example, if you are traveling somewhere and you have any friends who have already been there, you might ask them to share any tidbits of information about that place with you.

One other interesting definition of this word is that it means a small piece of tasty food… I wonder if that is why the word “bean” appears in the Japanese translation?! Ha ha! I don’t really think that is the reason, but do you know the real reason?
