(NEW YORK) — The heck with hypertension, Americans love their salty snacks and the number one treat, according to a brand recognition survey by YouGov BrandIndex, is Ritz Crackers.
It’s the second year in a row that the Nabisco product, a favorite since the 1930’s, has topped the list with an overall favorability rating of 55.2, just a smidgen higher than in 2011.
Trailing Ritz in second place is Lay’s Potato Chips while Doritos Tortilla Chips and Fritos Corn Chips, each made by Frito-Lay’s, finished third and fourth. Here’s the top ten:
5. Orville Redenbacher Popcorn
6. Wheat Thins
YouGov conducted its survey of 1.5 million adults ages 18 and above by asking the question, “Do you have a general positive feeling about the brand?” and using scores of 100 through minus 100 with negative feedback subtracted from positive responses.
