    So if someone, a native-born American, said, that they were going to the store for a "pakkanabs" or some "nabs"
    Would you have any idea what they were talking about?

    Pack of nabs = pack of peanut butter and crackers

    I would have presumed it to be an Indian subcontinent import of some sort. Like curry-flavored papadam or fried nan traingles with garlic powder.

    I would have thought some sort of Indian food as well.

    Yes. Instantly.

    My grandfather eats "nabs" at a blinding rate. And that's what he calls them, not cheese and peanut butter crackers. Nabs.

    Yes, when I think of someone young and hip to the kids, I often think of Inky.
