    ________________

    *Not exactly a Latin American term related to dulce de leche, but “take a gander” means to look at. It’s a slangy idiom dating from the early 1900s. It derives from the verb gander, which means “stretch one’s neck to see,” presumably alluding to the long neck of the male goose, or gander.
