This seems like a misplaced holiday after all the grilling we just did. But TODAY is National Hamburger Day for some reason.
Here are four stats on our burger-eating habits, according to a survey of 1,000 Americans . . .
- Our favorite burger topping is cheese. 79% of Americans like it on their burgers. The rest of the top five are lettuce, 71% . . . tomatoes, 66% . . . onions, 58% . . . and pickles, 54%. They didn’t ask about condiments for some reason.
- Our favorite type of cheese to use on burgers is American, but just barely. 66% like American cheese . . . 65% like cheddar . . . 43% like Swiss . . . 40% like pepper jack . . . and 31% like provolone.
- Our five favorite burger chains are McDonald’s, Five Guys, Wendy’s, Burger King, and Steak ‘n Shake.
