my friend was making fun of me today because of the way I pronounce it.

I say 'Kay-row'
She says I'm wrong. She's also from Germany.

How do you say it?

As far as I'm concerned, you're wrong. You're as wrong as a wind chime in the winter.

I prounounce it keh-roe, or like, care-O. I don't even know how to type it out!

I say Kay-row too.

I looked it up on dictionary.com and they say it as "car-oh" Though it's a shrub, not the syrup itself.

Well, we are from south Texas and it is Kay-row. That was the name of my DH's childhood dog. Because she was all the colors of KARO syrup. That was a sweet dog. Just like the syrup.

Hehe, I can hear your Southern accents.

We say care-oh. Like the name Karen, minus the N, plus an O.

Care-oh
Kare-O

Something like that.

Mostly like you, Kay-row, but I've heard it care-oh as well. No matter what you call it, as long as you're using it, it's likely to be good!

My mother always called it Kay Row, so I am afraid I do too. i have heard it is supposed to be pronounced Care-Oh, but I'll just stick with Kay Row. Makes me think of my mom, and that's a good thing.
