Poll: Do you eat too many sweets and crisps?

Be honest, now…

A REPORT RELEASED this morning shows the Irish shopper is rather partial to chocolate and crisps, with 12 of the Top 100 Brands being confectionery products.

Dairy Milk and Tayto are the 4th and 5th most purchased of any brand in Irish shops, with Walkers in 8th place, and a number of other sweets and crisps spread throughout the list.

We all know they’re not particularly good for us, and yet we seem to keep going back for more.

So, be honest: Do you eat too much chocolate, and too many sweets and crisps?

Poll Results:

Yes, I really should cut down (5553)
No, I'm comfortable with how much of them I eat (2950)
No, I never, ever eat them (477)
