Maybe it's just me, but I've never encountered Americans using the word that way. The only ones I've heard are expat Brits living here. In fact, it happened just the other day. A bunch of us were in a restaurant, and the waitress (a Brit) said something about sweet vs savory, and we all went... huh? None of us knew what she meant.
