Millennials mangia with their eyes.
Younger folks love Italian meals — however for the way it pictures, not its carby, tomato-y gloriousness, in accordance with a brand new survey by OnePoll.
The ballot of two,000 adults, sponsored by the Italian meals firm Napolina (which certainly had no vested curiosity within the outcomes), discovered that almost three-quarters of millennials aged 22 to 35 named Italian meals as their favourite delicacies.
That’s considerably greater than the 42% of the 55-and-older set who mentioned the identical.
Nevertheless, in accordance with the ballot, a few of these millennials aren’t in it for the pure, easy pleasure of Parmesan-piled pastas. Their affinity is extra … likes-driven.
About 1 in 10 millennial respondents informed OnePoll they like Italian meals for the way “Instagrammable” it’s. Some even admitted that they like how they’ll make it look fancy quicker than different cuisines.
On common, millennial respondents copped to posting Instagram pictures of Italian meals 3 times month-to-month.
So, what’s essentially the most visually scrumptious dish? Pizza, 41% of respondents mentioned, is essentially the most interesting to submit to social media. Can’t argue with that.
