It is National Biscuit Day (29 May) and a poll has revealed what your biscuit choice says about you.
United Biscuits brand McVitie’s decided to poll the nation as we a bunch of biscuit fans with the average Brit enjoying two a day [One Poll research].
The results include general personality traits as decided by your biscuit, for example, Digestive-eaters describe themselves as fun-loving, Jaffa Cake fans think they are cheeky and Hobnob enthusiasts think they are funny.
More detailed results indicate that Milk Chocolate Digestive lovers are most likely to be fans of Coronation Street, Ginger Nut eaters prefer a ‘staycation’ over a holiday abroad and Rich Tea chompers are most likely to live in East Anglia.
Sarah Heynen, marketing director, Sweet Biscuits, said: “At McVitie’s we know the truly ubiquitous nature of biscuits – but we decided wanted to dig a little deeper and discover what makes each biscuit-lover unique. Our research should put smiles on people’s faces for National Biscuit Day and reminds everyone how biscuits can make everyday moments go just that little bit better.”
