"The Italian word 'mero' stands for wine which has not been tampered with. But as such wine is bound to go to one's head if not accompanied by something to eat, it is ritually accompanied by a merenda. La Merenda cannot be confused with the modern snack. The snack is snatched, la merenda is shared."
