No correct answers from dargorygel either.

Hint: Even though something isn't a food, that doesn't mean you can't eat it.
If only "motor oil" fit the OTHER clues.

Is the scrabble score of your word more or less than the 14 points for "donut holes"?

Is the first word in common English usage? Also are you very sure that both spellings have a u and are 2 letters different in length?

With no point bonuses, the combined score of the 2 words is less than 14 points for both spellings.

First word is very common in English. I am absolutely sure about the spelling and length difference, but I would advise for now to stick with the longer spelling for now.

My estimate is that we're looking for a two-word phrase where each word is 5 letters long. If it's 4, then the short version is is just 2 letters and that's unlikely. 6 letter words are possible, but you quickly start running up against the 14 point Scrabble limit. And it's somehow related to donut holes but not edible.

With all those constraints, it's kinda infuriating that I'm not coming up with anything to guess!

Are the two extra letters at the end of the word?

The first word is 4 letters, and the short version is just 2 letters. I will say that the short version is not properly a word, but there is a good reason relating to the phrase as a whole that I am accepting the 2-letter version as an acceptable spelling.

No, they are at the beginning of the word.

Another hint: the two-letter “word” sounds the same as the four-letter word when pronounced.

I'm pretty sure I know the first word, even more so with that last clue. Unfortunately, I don't know the second. Is the second word a physical entity? Is it a noun?
