[size=150:w6e9e7pt]Bacon Butties are the Favourite!

Bacon butties, roast dinners and a cuppa: 50 things we love best about Britain show we're a nation of food lovers

The tasty bacon butty is what we love most about Britain, a survey revealed today.
A humble bacon sandwich topped the poll of the 50 things we most adore about the nation, with a traditional roast dinner taking second place.
Nothing washes down a meal better than a lovely cup of tea - which came in at number three in the survey of 60,000 Brits.


Nation of food lovers: The bacon butty and roast dinner came in first and second place
Our proud national history came fourth followed by the BBC in fifth, Big Ben in sixth and Buckingham Palace in seventh.
The love for our rolling hills will never dwindle as the beautiful English countryside made eighth spot.
Food continued its domination in the remainder of the top ten, with fish and chips and the Yorkshire Pudding coming in at ninth and tenth respectively.
Incredibly, the poll revealed that cheese is a greater national treasure than our monarch, with cheddar coming in at 13th on the list while the Queen trailed behind in 15th.


Bond and Big Ben: These two national icons feature in the survey on the top 50 things we love about Britain
For an example of style, class and British engineering, the Aston Martin roared into 17th.
It is clear that Brits love bagging a bargain, which comes in at 30th on the list.
James Bond triumphed over Harry Potter as the nation’s best-loved fictional character.
And proving the quirkiness us Brits are known for is alive and well, that most alternative of British ‘sports’ - cheese rolling - made the last spot.


The old and the new: British icons such as Shakespeare and the Royal Family also made the list
While perhaps when it comes to love, the debate is over, as Marmite finished narrowly outside the top 50.
‘When it comes to our great loves food is clearly on top and whether it’s a butty, bun or sanger the trusty bacon sandwich is a worthy winner of the top spot,’ said T-Mobile spokesman Spencer McHugh, after the company commissioned the research for a new TV ad.
He added: ‘Whether we’re eating it between bread or rolling it down a hill it’s obvious that we are a nation of food lovers.'

Obviously the organisers only polled Little BRITAIN. Had they bothered with their other countrymen they may have found N.Irish people with a liking for the Ulster Fry, Vegetable Roll, Soda Farls, Wheaten Bread or Baps.

Had they followed the M6 North (it goes for miles even after Manchester) for long enough they might have founders Gingers up there with a liking for Rolls and Sliced Sausage, Haggis, Butteries, Stovies and Deep Fried Mars Bars.

My personal favourite was a Mortons Chewy Roll with Sliced Sausage and Tatty Scone.
