And, a survey done by Foodhub has proven all us Yorkshire folk right. If your answer to ‘what are chips and bread together called together?’ was chip butty then doth your flat cap and sip thee brew because you are 100% correct.

In Foodhub’s survey chip butty won with 58% of the vote, leaving no argument to the question that is thrown around the office or down at the pub over a few ales. The 2nd answer after that was a chip roll (which I’ve never heard of), with 11% of the vote. In 3rd place was a chip sandwich, with 6% of the vote. The rest aren’t even worth a mention!

In other news, 33% of the nation preferred eating fish & chips from the paper with 35% saying they’d rather eat from a plate. Great to know. How those people manage to get them home in time to put them on a plate is beyond me. Eating ’em in the car when bought is always a delight. Anyone else with us on the subject of opening the paper and eating a few chips on the home (come on everyone must do this one).
