London, November 11 (ANI): The humble Scotch egg is the most loved snack served in British bars, says a poll.
The eggs knocked off triple-cooked chips and sausage rolls to the second and third place respectively to claim the best snack title.
Wrapping up the top five in the survey, by Caterer and Hotelkeeper magazine, were pork scratchings, sausages and pickled eggs, reports the Daily Express.
Chef Antony Worrall Thompson said: "Give me a Scotch egg with some piccalilli and I am in heaven - to me it is the best form of snack food.
"The thing with foreign snacks is they are not filling, if you have a plate of Serrano ham or olives they do not fill you up."
British Beer and Pub Association spokesman Neil Williams added: "These pub classics are part of Britain's food heritage, so it's good to see them still much loved by pub-goers." (ANI)
