2020 has been a tumultuous year to say the least. To get through the tough times of the COVID-19 pandemic, new data suggests people have turned to food, and more specifically, comfort food.
A new study, surveying the food habits of 2,000 Americans, found that comfort food is more popular than ever. 66% of respondents reported an increase in comfort food consumption since the start of the pandemic. This includes beloved favorites such as pizza, hamburgers, ice cream, Mac and cheese, and spaghetti and meatballs. Here are other key takeaways from the report:
- 41% associate comfort food with happiness
- 85% gained a few pounds staying at home more – 6 pounds on average
- 90% say the pandemic has brought an increase in online and social searches for food inspiration
- Steak is the most anticipated comfort food meal people are looking forward to enjoying post-pandemic
