  • I was told a comestable is a thing that is edible; the context was a discussion of specialty retail stores: both king cake bakeries and bicycle shops make virtually all their money in one month of the year; unlike bicycle shops, which stay open all year, king cake bakeries are only open for that one month because their product is comestable.

  • Right. So how do I get to eat a king cake in the other 11 months of the year.

    Would look better if you spelt it "comestible".

  • yes, I see that is a much more popular spelling. I did ask the woman who used it for a spelling. Appears she both misused it and misspelt it!
