What would you eat if you could eat like a kid again?If they could eat whatever they want, Americans would indulge in two helpings of pizza, yogurt, ice cream and finish with apple pie as a new survey pinpointed the country's dream menu.The study of 2,000 Americans was commissioned by Carvel and conducted by OnePoll and asked people what they would eat if they could eat like a kid again for the day.Respondents were asked to choose from a pre-qualified list of options and were most likely to cite yogurt for breakfast, a snack of ice cream throughout the day and pizza for both lunch and dinner.
Those with room would end the day with an apple pie dessert.Adults definitely enjoy owning their independence and break all those rules moms busted them for in their youth. Fifty-one percent of respondents admitted to eating on the couch, while one in two embraced the classic treat and ate breakfast for dinner.No one is going to tell an adult that snacking before dinner will spoil their meal so half of respondents said they've indulged in a tasty bite before their evening meal. Sugary snacks before bed (45 percent) was another rule that was just too much fun to break.
Thirty-seven percent confessed to living their best lives and having dessert for dinner. Desserts that topped the list of all-time favorites included milkshakes, chocolate chip cookies, ice cream cake, and cheesecake. While respondents embraced their adult independence, there were still behaviors that they secretly would love to today. Forty-three percent wished to eat with their hands, while 38 percent have had an urge to blow bubbles in their drink. Sometimes not all the food at the dinner table can be to a person's liking.
Thirty-seven percent wished they could hide the food they weren't a fan of and 35 percent would take it a step further and sneak food to the dog. A spokesperson for Carvel said, "We've consistently seen in our shoppes that adult guests look for those products where they can feel like a kid again.
Whether that's enjoying a Fudgie the Whale cake because it's what they've enjoyed for every birthday or a fun new treat to experience." Three in four respondents revealed they have a sweet tooth.
People are likely to reach for treats late at night (68 percent) or after a hard day (81 percent). If folks are out and about at a shop, then 59 percent said they'd prefer a classic milkshake treat ?
Chocolate was by far the favorite flavor with 35 percent. The spokesperson for Carvel added, "We love being in the space of transporting you back to your childhood.
If ice cream can create a moment of joy for someone then it's a welcomed invitation."
