HIGHLIGHTS: A new survey for National Pancake Day found over two-thirds of us sometimes eat breakfast foods when it’s NOT breakfast. Including 50% who do it regularly.
FULL STORY: Here’s how much America loves sugar for breakfast: Today is the SECOND National Pancake Day of the year. There’s one in March that IHOP does, and a second one on September 26th.
A brand new survey just looked at how often we eat breakfast when it’s NOT breakfast time. And it’s more popular than you might think.
Over two-thirds of people said they sometimes eat breakfast foods at off-hours. Including 50% who do it regularly, meaning at least once a month.
Young people are more likely to enjoy breakfast for dinner, or “brinner.” 87% said it’s great, compared to 68% of baby boomers.
And 80% of Americans said breakfast foods are also good for a midnight snack.
That doesn’t mean we’re making pancakes or whipping up a quiche at 1:00 A.M. though. The survey didn’t look at the most popular late-night breakfast foods. But #1 is probably cereal.
