I pronounce the candy "CARE-ah-mel." And, dumb question, but is the school/town pronounced "CAR-mul," "car-MEL," or something else?
It's CAR-mul. At least that's how I've heard basically all Indiana residents say it. I'll leave it to someone from Carmel to confirm though.
Well I think think the first problem is that you're pronouncing the candy wrong...

Carmel is definitely pronounced MUHN-stǝr... idk what you guys are talking about

In all seriousness, I've always heard the emphasis on the first syllable, like CAR-mǝl. I also pronounce caramel (the food) the same way, but I'm pretty sure it's wrong. Do I care? No. I'm not supposed to talk with caramel in my mouth anyway.

Can I request that we delete 2020 from our memories and do it over again?
