Credit crunch food comfort
Tuesday 23 June 2009
Remember the days your granny served up macaroni cheese, shepherd’s pie and treacle sponge with custard for tea?
Well folks, before you cry ‘all in the past!’ as you force down another morsel of cucumber and hummus on your umpteenth diet this year, a new survey reveals that us Brits are turning to one thing to cheer us up during these economically turbulent times – bangers and mash!
That’s right Closer Online readers. A new TV channel ‘Good Food’ reveals that us Brits are choosing to ride out the credit crunch storm by reverting to nostalgic childhood grub, with bangers and mash coming out tops with 16% of the total votes, as cast by over 3000 people in the UK.
The nation’s former favourite dish, fish and chips, came a close second with 15% of the votes whiles good old beans on toast came third with 10% of the votes.
It’s thought that in these tough times, people are desperate to find cheap ways to cheer themselves up - and choosing feel-good food that takes us back to our childhood days is the most cost effective way to do it!
Well, we can’t all be nibbling on carrot sticks in a £1 million pound-a-week health spa to get a body like Cheryl Cole now can we?
Pass the turkey drummers…
