Origin of name[edit]

Where exactly does this word come from? I asked my wife, who is Czech, and she had never heard the term before. Is it actually Slovak in origin or perhaps specific to a region of the Czech Republic?

It's a pretty common term among Czechs. I made mention of them in passing to my friend who lives in Pisek, CZ and he knew exactly what I was talking about, considering I descend from Moravians it seems to be a pretty common term. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:18, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
In the Czech Rep. unheard of, I can assure you [1]. Littledogboy (talk) 19:24, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
Littledogboy - seconded. As a Czech native, I've never heard the term. It does not even make sense. It sounds like a corrupted combination of klobása and šnek (š=sh). And the "klobásek" does not exist as a nominative in the language, it is a plural genitive diminutive form. I've just double-checked it in the national corpus. A similar word "klobásník" (roughly "klob-ah-sneek", translation would be something like "a pastry that has something to do with klobása") seems to denote a regional dish - according to ONE online source. The recipe *is* the same one. My speculation: someone misinterpreted someone else's invention as a national dish and it became widespread through its coverage by mass-media.

This is just a bad (somewhat) transliteration of klobásník. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:32, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
