Flahavans fends off Dairy Milk and Tayto to claim top spot in vote for Ireland's favourite food brand

Love Irish Food favourites survey asked 2,150 people about their most-beloved foods.

THE LOVE IRISH Food group has published the results from its latest favourites survey, with Flahavans, apple tart, dinner and Cork among the main winners across the different categories.

A total of 2,150 people participated in the survey, which asked Irish people their thoughts on food and drink across ten different categories.

Flahavans was voted Ireland’s favourite food brand in the survey, with Cadbury’s Dairy Milk, Tayto crisps, McCambridge Bread and Ballymaloe Foods rounding out the top five.

For people who get their food outside the traditional supermarket or shop, Marlay Park was singled out as people’s favourite farmer’s market, with Bloom in the Phoenix Park chosen as the favourite festival.

Dinner won the vote as Ireland’s favourite meal, followed by breakfast and lunch.

Apple tart was more popular than cake and chocolate in the indulgent treats category, while Irish people abroad missed tea the most, followed by butter and bread.

Cork, meanwhile, was chosen as Ireland’s favourite “food county”, with Dublin second and Wexford in third place.

In other categories, Tesco was chosen as Ireland’s favourite food shop, while Chapter One in Dublin beat off competition from Rustic Stone, and Mustard Seed in Co Limerick, as the favourite restaurant.

Love Irish Food was set up in 2009 by a group of Irish brands. They say that its members employ over 15,000 people directly or indirectly in the food industry in Ireland.
