A new food is bringing Australians together. It is also Word of the Year. It is the "halal snack pack" (or "HSP"). It is kebab meat with fries and a spicy sauce. It started in Australia but is very Middle Eastern. It is making people more aware of halal food. An HSP Facebook group has 180,000 members. People share HSP stories.

The halal snack has got people talking in Australia. It became more popular after a politician refused to eat one. She said "98% of Australians" were against halal meat. There is no proof of this. An Islamic group said HSP winning word of the year was great because it, "takes away the mystery…about the word 'halal'".
