Cheese on toast named best lockdown treat

A very important survey has uncovered the revelation

1y ago

Plenty of important scientific research is taking place during the coronavirus pandemic, mainly revolving around how the virus spreads and what can be done to immunise people against it.

Obviously, this is top level work, and – some might argue – essential to securing the future existence of the human race.

However, while all of this confusing medical stuff has been taking place, an even more crucial investigation has been completed: what is the best lockdown snack?

Apparently, people have given up providing themselves with filling and wholesome meals and have instead reverted to eating a constant stream of satisfying snacks throughout the day. So, website raisin.co.uk decided to find out exactly what the nation’s favourite isolation snack is.

Personally, I thought that chocolate would have scored very highly, but maybe that’s simply because I’m addicted to it. Another guess of mine was that twelve bottles of vodka would have topped the chart, but seemingly the survey was more child friendly than brutal reality.

The results, from best to worst, can be seen below:

1. Cheese on toast

2. Cheese and onion crisps

3. Bacon sandwich with ketchup

4. Cheese and biscuits

5. Salt and vinegar crisps

6. Salted peanuts

7. Ham and cheese toastie

8. Pot noodle

9. Custard cream biscuits

10. Tortilla chips and dips

A list obviously compiled by Wallace and Gromit, then. Honestly, there’s almost as much cheese in that countdown as there is on my Christmas wish list; but, a well-deserved victory for the mighty cheese on toast. At least the dreaded banana-related products didn’t reached the top ten.

The most concerning thing revealed by the survey is not that the entire nation is perilously close to turning into a lump of cheddar, but that people actually eat bacon butties with tomato sauce. Surely, that must be a mistake – not even people from Essex can be that obscene. The correct answer, as we all know, is that bacon goes with brown sauce. Right?

  • Luxury, luxury.

    When I were a lad, we used to dream about cheese.

    And toast to put it on.
