Welcome Friday & National Fried Chicken Day
Today is National Fried Chicken Day. I could not believe this at first, but, hey maybe there are some hardcore fried chicken lovers out there. 6% of Americans, think that every day is Fried Chicken Day.
A survey asked 1,000 people how often they eat fried chicken. And 6% said they eat it EVERY DAY. (Maybe their definition of "fried chicken" included things like chicken nuggets?)
30% said once a month or less 22% said every couple weeks 21% said about once a week 22% said multiple times a week and 6% said every day, those are your hardcore fried chicken lovers!.
So if you add that up, it means 49% of Americans eat fried chicken at least once a week. Wow, no wonder our collective waistline keeps expanding.
The survey also found the most popular condiments to eat with it are barbecue sauce hot sauce, ranch dressing, gravy and honey mustard.
And 71% of Americans think chicken-and-waffles are a good combo. I asked my news guy Tom this morning if had ever tried this tasty combo, he had not. if you have never tried it do so it is great, especially with maple syrup.
