Brits Take Baked Beans On Holiday, Can You Believe It?
So you’ve decided to go abroad, everything is organised and your stuff is packed. Then you feel like you’ve forgotten to pack something, and it irritates you because you just can’t remember. More than likely, the thing you may or may not have forgotten is not associated with food. However, a survey just completed has shown that many Brits take baked beans on holiday because they just can’t be without some of their home comforts.
The survey itself was completed by Schofields Holiday Home Insurance, from which it was found that over 60% of Brits take baked beans on holiday since the equivalents found abroad do not match the quality of ones found in the United Kingdom. Many people will take chocolates with them even sweets, but the survey revealed that both bacon (32%) and condiments (20%) were also surprisingly taken by Brits heading abroad.
Half of these Brits didn’t think they would get in trouble for taking food with them
Its also not uncommon for Brits to take foods for friends and family overseas, but the types of foods which are making the journeys with these holidaymakers are slightly out of the ordinary. Even more so when you think that food distribution is pretty efficient in the developed world, and as such you will be able to get a hold of almost every brand and type of food product.
Now many of you reading this may ask the natural question of ‘Are these people not aware of the rules about taking food products in suitcases?’ Well the answer from the research carried out would be resounding NO! Because almost 50% of those who had packed their own bags, had said that they had no idea regarding the rules about taking food products abroad. And despite the warnings that are usually given over such cases, almost 40% didn’t believe that they would get into trouble if they did transport food in such a way.
The only exception to this would be those who take food with them when travelling abroad in a car, because in this instance you shall not be getting any other food on your journey since you yourself are the pilot of your own vessel. This is unless you stop of at restaurants. 18% were found to take British food with them when driving abroad, which makes perfect sense since their journey did after all start in the United Kingdom. But the fact that Brits take baked beans on holiday is a massive eye opener.
