New Survey Reveals UK Youngsters Prefer Samosa With Their Chai

Wait till they try pakoras…

A UK survey has revealed that youngsters in Britain now prefer samosas with their chai instead of biscuits.

Recent surveys in Britain have shown that young people are switching to savory snacks to go with their tea, and that snack is none other than the good ol’ samosa! Mintel surveyed 2,000 tea drinkers to warn that future sales of sweet biscuits could be at risk if they don’t establish the habit of hot drinks with biscuits.

The biscuit companies will have to think fast because if UK youngsters get their hands on some hot pakoras, it’s game over!

Tea, or chai as we like to call it, is a very popular beverage to relax and socialize. It is a staple beverage in Britain and has been for centuries. Drinking tea in Britain is a long-standing tradition dating back to the 17th century.

It is traditionally served with milk, sugar, biscuits, scones, or cakes. However, It might surprise you to learn that the old tradition of dipping a biscuit in a cup chai may be over.

A survey of 1,000 people conducted by the United Kingdom Tea & Infusions Association, UKTIA found that granola bars were the most popular tea-time snack for one in ten between 18 and 29-year-olds.

Samosa came in second place, with eight percent of the children surveyed choosing to have the popular desi snack alongside their chai.

However, no one over 65 preferred it, choosing to stick with the tried-and-test formula of tea with biscuits.
