There are 2 acceptable spellings for the first word. In one case it is shorter than the second word. In the other case it is the same length as the second word.
However, your guess is the closest so far in terms of the actual subject matter.

Is one spelling an English spelling and an American spelling? Or are these two spellings used interchangeably?

No, it is not a difference of American and English spellings. The shorter version of the first word is less formal than the longer version. I will note that the longer version of the entire phrase is approximately 34.5x more popular than the shorter version according to Google Trends.

Puffling pants, perchance?

I'm back to Doughnut (or Donut) holes. It fits EVERY clue. Even the 'not food.' Because a hole by definition has NOTHING in it.

Admit it leon... you lied to me!

Is the longer word more than one character longer than the shorter word?

Okay, Donut holes has the same length for the first and second word. What is the alternative spelling of donut that is shorter than 5 letters?

I would again like to point out that Doughnut holes is the closest guess we've had so far in terms of substance.

Yes, in the short version of the first word, the second word is 2 letters longer than the first word.

No correct answers from dargorygel either.

Hint: Even though something isn't a food, that doesn't mean you can't eat it.
