16 March 2017 | 0
Waterford oat millers Flahavan’s and Cadbury’s Dairymilk chocolate have beaten off stern competition from Tayto to be voted Ireland’s Favourite Food Brands, according to the Love Irish Food Favourites Survey.
Covering all things Irish from food products to farmer’s markets, the Love Irish Food Favourites Survey received a total of 2,150 votes across 10 categories.
The results of the survey, which was conducted on Facebook, come just days ahead of the most Irish day of the year – St Patrick’s Day and place Irish bread makers McCambridge fourth, just ahead of relish experts Ballymaloe Foods in the list of Ireland’s favourite brands.
When it comes to the most missed product for Irish abroad, there is no surprise that tea tops the list, followed by butter and bread.
Living up to their ‘rebel’ reputation, Cork, a county steeped in food heritage, pipped close rival Dublin to the post as Ireland’s favourite food county with Wexford coming in third.
The Irish apparently like to keep things traditional with apple tart, pie or crumble topping the charts in the favourite indulgent treats category. Meanwhile, Bord Bia’s Bloom was voted Ireland’s Favourite Food Festival with Taste of Dublin and Electric Picnic tied for second.
