Foodhub has sought to answer an interesting question about the preferred name for chips served in a bread roll.
Various terms find favour across Britain, but chip butty has been declared the winner - this being prevalant in our district, of course.
Foodhub surveyed 2,000 takeaway fans in August, and 58% opted for this term - four times more than any other option.
The second most popular title was chip roll, followed by chip sandwich, chip bap, chip barm and chip cob.
Foodhub.co.uk says Britain is still very much in love with the classic fish & chips dinner, although there are differences in how Brits like to consume them.
Nationally, 33% say they prefer to eat fish and chips straight from the wrapping paper, while 35% like to put them on a plate.
The survey shows that 44% eat fish & chips with a traditional knife and fork, though almost one in five opt for the iconic chippy-style wooden fork.
A medium-sized, lightly battered cod fillet with a medium-sized portion of chunky chips is overwhelmingly the nation’s favourite.
The survey of 2,000 adults was conducted via OnePoll.
