Trivia... in South Carolina, a Sonker is a form of deep-dish cooked fruit dessert resembling a British fruit crumble or a North american cobbler. Hmmm. Flavoured sonkeys, anyone? AgProv (talk) 18:52, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Most sources seem to limit it to the environs of Mt Airy North Carolina. I've toured that area a bit and accents and customs can change sharply from one side of the mountain to the other, never mind state to state (rather like England). No one knows what it is for sure, either but as Nanny says "it doesn't matter what's in it as long as you call it slumpie". (Slump being another name for the same sort of thing elsewhere in the country.) --Old Dickens (talk) 19:21, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
