Almost one in six adults devoured it snacks while on the toilet, according to research.

A poll of 2,000 adults has revealed the weirdest places they like to snack, with more than a fifth gobbling up in the bathtub – and 18% gnawing in the barn.

One in ten people have even snacked in a Wendy’s house in the garden, one in 20 feels nauseous when it’s hot and humid in the bedroom.

And one in five even admitted to taking the food out of the bin – still looking “perfectly fine” in their opinion.

It also appears more than a quarter admit to being judged for their irresistible urge to snack.

Psychologist Jo Hemmings, speaking on behalf of Peperami, which organized the poll, said: “There are some interesting revelations from this study, and the intriguing question is why do people have it? tend to find a snack in somewhat unconventional places?

“Sometimes, simply snacking with others can give you a moment of peace to enjoy something in its purest form.

“While many people look to snacks as a comfort routine, others prefer people unaware of their cravings. Either way, locations speak for themselves about how long people will come to get a quick bite to eat. “

The study also found that chips, chocolate bars and cookies were the most commonly eaten snacks in unusual places, along with bread, sweets and fruit.

While 22% preferred a chicken bite the most, with a fifth choosing snacks high in protein.

And a third said simply hunger was the reason for consuming things in unusual places – with 18 per cent simply preferring to eat in places like restrooms.

But while more than a quarter were caught feeding their food at one of their secret locations, 30% said friends and family would be shocked at where they ate.

Interestingly, a third have even packed their own food to eat at other people’s homes, knowing they don’t like the rampant supply.

And of those, 40% secretly consumed their emergency snacks.

Pavan Chandra, from Peperami, added: “It seems many people can’t resist a meaty snack wherever they find it – however, many prefer to keep it a secret.

“Research has shown that hunger can strike you at any moment, and it’s clear that people in the UK have acted on this, daring to eat where no one expected.

“It is also quite interesting to see the different places and distances that people will come to enjoy a delicious dish.

“We want Britons to be daring and brave and brood our Peperami range wherever they like.”
