Bacon: The champion of British snacks
Snacks are better than proper meals. The only thing better than snacks is when you supersize them into meal sized portions. Basically, the only thing better than a bacon butty is five bacon butties.
And the might bacon sandwich just so happens to be the favourite snack of the British after it came first in a poll. No great surprises there, but we like writing about bacon.
Following hot on it's greasy little tail was cheese on toast, sausage rolls, Cornish pasties and scotch eggs. Imagine all those on one plate and you, with your face shoved in it, breathing them down you as your heart works overtime. Delicious.
The poll for Olive magazine saw over half of the readers voting for bacon, because bacon is best. A divide between the North and South of the country revealed itself also, with Northerners preferring brown sauce with their pig, and Southerners looking lustily at Ketchup.
Christine Hayes, editor of Olive, said: "The survey shows that the Great British public love a bacon sarnie, not just for breakfast but any time. But everyone has their own idea of what makes the perfect butty as we can see from the North/South divide."
Which do you prefer? And if you're a vegetarian, you can piss off with your cauliflowers.
