N. 'gloo-tun-glut-tun Throwback who downs the contents of two, three or more baskets of rolls, breadsticks, etc. during a restaurant meal. Usage: Throughout Chuck and Lena’s first  date, Chuck gobbled foccaccia and asked for more whenever a waiter passed. Lena felt strangely drawn—she hadn’t dated a glutenglutton since the ’80s, and it was liberating to imagine herself dating a man whose bulk would make her look slim in comparison.
