If you are a fan of the Android, then you may have already cottoned on to Google’s naming techniques when it comes to generating code names for their Android systems. Each is named after a sweet treat and each name begins with the letter of the alphabet that follows the first letter of the previous system. There was no code name for the first two versions of the Android, but the third was code named ‘Cupcake’ and the names of the others have followed this theme to date.

This month the rumour mill was rife with predictions that the newest system would be called ‘Key lime Pie’ due to limited sweet treats beginning with ‘K’.  Although, we can’t help but think that Knickerbocker glory got slightly over looked.

Of course, they may not make it half way through the alphabet before they change tact, but we wanted to have some fun and predict what names may come up in future if the trend continues.

The Challenge

We think that even Google could fail to come up with something for Z and X and it could take a genius to come up with a sweet treat beginning with Q! so, we are offering a £20 Amazon.co.uk Gift Certificate* for the most original sweet treat beginning  with EITHER of these letters.

Just for fun however, we have left L, N and S blank and are offering a £10 Amazon Gift Certificate to the winner of the most original idea for each of these.

What do you need to do to be in with a chance of winning?

Simply help us come up with some Sweet treats beginning with the missing letters below. Don’t worry if you can’t think of anything for Q, X and Z. There is still a chance to win with L, N or S.

C – Cupcake √  O – Oreo cookie Cheesecake 
D – Doughnut √  P – Peanut Butter cupcake 
E – Éclair √  Q – 
F – Froyo √  R  – Rocky Road 
G – Gingerbread √  S –  
H – Honeycomb √  T  – Tiramisu 
I – Ice-cream Sandwich √  U – Upside down cake 
J – Jellybean √  V – Vanilla Panna cotta 
K – Key lime Pie √  W – Walnut Whip 
L –   X  – 
M – Mince Pie  Y – Yogurt covered raison 
N –   Z  –
