THE Irish food most missed by emigrants around the world has been revealed – and once again, it is Tayto crisps.
For the second year in a row, the humble, but much-loved Irish crisp has taken the top spot in a list of what Irish emigrants miss most.
In a survey run by Checkout Magazine, 42 per cent of respondents placed Tayto as the number one food they missed – with Cadbury’s chocolate coming second.
But the ongoing battle of Barry’s versus Lyons tea was not settled – with 40 per cent missing each brand.
The research also asked 546 Irish emigrants about which products they believe are better quality in Ireland – and stout was a clear leader.
In total, 66 per cent of those surveyed said that Irish stout is better quality than abroad; while rashers, butter, milk and tea also dominated the top ten.
“With the Irish diaspora spread far and wide, it’s likely that at least some of the products featured in this survey will be making their way to loved ones on the other side of the world this Christmas,” editor of Checkout Stephen Wynne-Jones said.
