Putting the text in quotes seems to work
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
x^3 "and" y^3

If you want the "and" to behave as an operator (formatting and context), you can also declare the occurrence explicitly as a binary operator by keyword "boper".
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
x^3 boper and y^3
