I hesitate correcting anyone for grammatical errors because I do them so often too, but this one bugs me each time I see it in the paper.

"Umm" is usually used as a filled pause - a word used to fill in the blanks between words during which the speaker thinks or hesitates, and also includes the words "uh" and "er." Example: I went to the park and rode, ummm, four rides.

To refer to something tasting good, it's simply, "Mmm."

Regardless of grammar, it looks like Jessey is enjoying his hot dog.
