In California it's a hard "G" sound, and is reflected in the dictionary.

Hrmm, are you saying that in CA, giblets are pronounced with a hard g sound? I'm not sure I believe that. It may just be that everyone who's around you mispronounces it, and you think its a regional thing, when it really is a household thing.

I think giblets is really pronounced with a j-sound. If you can find a dictionary to contradict this, then please let us know.

With that said, I still pronounce "gib" with a hard-g sound. Us, unwashed heathens have taken over the word, and that's just how we pronounce it. As with any language, the "right" way is the way the majority of the people speak.
