Social media application and company, Skout recently did a survey on potato chips on March 10th, 2016, a few days before National Potato Chip Day which is on March 14. The survey asked people what their favorite potato chip flavor was. It also aims to see if favorite potato chip flavor correlates to other things such as interests, personality and beliefs. The results are surprising! Here are some of the highlights of the survey conducted by Skout on over 3,046 residents based in the United States.
96% of respondents said that they enjoyed snacking on potato chips. People who responded that their favorite potato chip flavor was a citrus flavored one were found to have the largest social circles. About 42% of respondents who liked citrus flavored chips the best had at least five or more close acquaintances.
Hot and spicy flavors reveal something about the intimate part of a person’s life. People who like spicy and hot chips the most are much more likely to be adventurous and playful in the bedroom when it comes to intimate activity. The category of chips included in the hot and spicy section for the survey includes jalapeno and Cajun flavored varieties of chips as well as many others.
Chips can even reveal how active some people are to an extent. People who prefer low sodium or sodium free potato chips are the most likely to be active and exercise frequently. In fact, 14% of respondents who selected sodium free or low sodium potato chips as their favorite replied that they exercise almost daily. On the other end of the spectrum, people whose favorite flavor is cheddar cheese flavored chips or plain chips are the least likely to be active.
Potato chip flavors also revealed some insight into which candidate a person is most likely to support depending on their favorite flavor. People who support Donald Trump as the GOP candidate are highly likely to favor BBQ flavored chips. Ted Cruz supporters are likely to have cheddar potato chips as their favorite flavor.
As a way of giving back and to celebrate National Potato Chip day, Skout has teamed up with the San Francisco Marin Food Bank. When a person gave a potato chip sticker to another user on National Potato Chip day through their app, the company donated money to the food bank. The goal was to raise enough money to help feed over 20,000 people in the San Francisco Bay area. For more on Skout’s survey and their donation you can read this article published on PR Newswire.
