What’s your favourite takeaway?


24th August 2022

A NEW poll has shown that fish and chips is less popular the younger you are.

Fish and chips is seen as the traditional British takeaway, but only 7% of 18 to 24-year-olds say it’s their favourite.

However the YouGov poll found that a trip to the chippie is still the most popular pick for more than a third of pensioners, aged 65 and over.

The news will be worrying for owners of chip shops, as they’re already fighting to make money with the cost of potatoes and fish rising by up to 50%.

The poll of 1,717 people found that fish and chips is still the second most popular UK takeaway overall (19%) behind Chinese (25%), then Indian (17%) and pizza (13%). Of those who took part in the survey, 27% said they had an unhealthy diet.

The YouGov poll was carried out for Times Radio.

Chinese food is sooo good! 😍 Especially with spices. But I like Japanese sushi as well. And pizza, kebab and fried chicken. It took me half an hour to decide which one to vote for.

Even though fish and chips is a classic, I prefer something with more flavour- and I don’t really like fish!

I voted for fish and chips because I live in cornwall and we have some very good fish and chip shops near us but I do like Thai and Chinese as well but fish and chips is probably my favourite

I love Indian, pizza, Chinese, fish and chips but I had to choose Indian. I could not live without curry, so I’m lucky that I even get Indian.

I put ‘ something else ‘ because fish and chips doesn’t quite work
I like a sausage rolled in bacon 🥓 and covered in batter from the Chippy but most chippys don’t do that
