Sherbet vs Sherbert


I was appalled to find that the word sherbet, according to my dictionary, may also be pronounced sherbert! What do you think?
SPOGG thinks you would enjoy The Big Book of Beastly Mispronunciations. You might be surprised at the correct pronunciation of the spice cumin. We know we were surprised to read that "ask" was pronounced "ax" in the good old days. In any case, it's a very fun read.
