Social media site Skout, conducted a survey back in March of 2016. This survey was for National Potato Chip Day which took place on March 14. The survey evaluated 3,000 respondents and their preferences for potato chips.
The survey was used to figure out people’s personalities according to the flavor of potato chips that they liked to eat. Skout sometimes conducts fun surveys like this every now and then. It is just one way that they get their members involved in the site and with each other.
The potato chip survey revealed some interesting results. People who like to regular chips are normal individuals who are not that overly concerned with their health. They tend to be the regular people that we all encounter in everyday life. Cheese chip lovers were also considered regular guys as well. This group of people tended to have a relaxed, go with the flow attitude about life.
Spicy chip lovers are often seen as bold and adventurous people. These type of people usually get involved in a lot of outside activities, causes and extreme events. Sour cream and onion potato chips consumers have a tendency to use their mind more. They usually love good conversation, hanging out with friends and spending nice quiet evenings at home.
Barbecue chip lovers are normal individuals who like to party and get fired up for a cause. The survey also revealed that at least 1/3 of Donald Trump’s supporters eat barbecue potato chips. The salt and vinegar type are different people who want to be different from everyone else. Lime chips are usually eaten by sociable people. This group likes to go out with friends and have fun on the town or have a good time at a restaurant.
As we already mentioned, people who consume specific potato chip flavors often side with a particular political candidate. For the Democrats many regular chip consumers would love to share a bag with candidate Hillary Clinton. Once again, people who eat specific flavors usually pick candidates that they honestly believe share their same taste.
Talk show hosts have even been used for this survey. At least 39% of all interviewees would share a bag of chips of Jimmy Fallon and 29% would do the same for Jimmy Kimmel.
