Food smuggling Brits!

We’ve all packed a few home comforts like teabags in our luggage; after all, you can’t go a week without a decent cuppa can you! According to a recent survey however, it was in fact baked beans which topped the list of produce most taken abroad from the UK. Check out the top 5…

  1. Baked beans (37%)
  2. Chocolate (35%)
  3. Bacon (32%)
  4. Sweets (24%)
  5. Condiments (20%)

More than 60% of Brits admitted to taking their favourite UK products on holiday, with 76% saying it’s because ‘equivalents abroad aren’t as good’. It seems that us Brits can’t live without good old British grub, even on holiday; but for a lot of people, leaving this behind is what travelling abroad is for.

It’s always nice to experience new cultures and a big part of that is trying new foods that you wouldn’t necessarily get in the UK. It’s especially nice for the kids to try different types of foods and broaden their taste palate from an early age.

So whether you’re a food smuggler or like to immerse yourself in the local culture, try booking your next holiday with On the Beach!
