About two weeks ago, I bought salty sticks, I usually buy at a supermarket, that came with a free pack of salty sticks for children. I ate my custom salty sticks, they were indeed salty. A few days after, I opened the pack of sticks for children. They were similar in taste to the previous but not equal to their salty taste. If 'saltish' is not the word that could be used to describe the salty sticks for children, which one would you suggest please?I'd like to know more about "Saltish means that it's similar in taste to salty, but is not equal to a salty taste," since I find that a little baffling. Between Webster and your second definition for "-ish," I would go with "somewhat salty."
