PUBLIC OPINION > Bacon Is Better Than Nutella

Fun 2012/09/18 21:00:00
Ever since Italian confectionery manufacturer Ferrero introduced Nutella, a hazelnut-based chocolatey spread, in the 1960s, one question has burned in the minds of all who tried it: "This is great... but is it better than bacon?" Today, we have the answer. We asked the public, once and for all, which delicious treat reigns supreme.

Is it any surprise that bacon took the cake? Not really. Bacon is timeless, like water slides and sensual massages. It's been around forever, and will continue to permeate society until the last pig has been fried to thin, crispy perfection. (Or thick and juicy, if you're into that.) "Nutella is great. Bacon is greater." Pretty sure that was Isaac Newton, but don't quote us on it.

Men Love Their Bacon

You'll be hard pressed to find someone of either gender who can look at a thin, crispy slice of pig fat without salivating uncontrollably. We suspect even some vegetarians lament the loss of such a treat. But when given an option between bacon and Nutella (i.e. chocolate), men are much more likely to pick bacon. Only 55% of female voters picked it.

Teens Take to Nutella

Teen voters actually preferred Nutella to bacon. In fact, they were one of the only demographics to do so. Only 46% of teens would pick bacon over Nutella, compared to nearly 80% of people over the age of 35. Could it be that Nutella will someday replace bacon? Will our novelty shops sell Nutella-scented soap? Will we add Nutella bits to our salads? Only time will tell.

Healthy, Shmealthy

Smokers and drinkers were both more likely to pick bacon over Nutella, suggesting that perhaps bacon is not as popular among health nuts (pun not intended). Smokers were 10% more likely to prefer bacon, while drinkers were 7% more likely. That's not to say Nutella is incredibly healthy. Ferrero was actually sued by California for suggesting Nutella is nutritious.

If you'd like to vote on this question, dig deeper into the demographics, or engage in existing discussion about the topic, visit our poll about the immensely important rivalry between bacon and Nutella. We'd love to hear from you!

    Enough with the Bacon obsession. It's not funny anymore.. It never really was.

    Bacon is good.. So is pizza. How come we don't have some idiot on TV saying "PIZZA PIZZA PIZZA!" ?

    never heard of Nutella, and not a big chocolate fan, so would have to go with bacon
  • Pacomutts 2012/09/18 23:18:16
    By all means, bacon beats Nutella by a long shot, and, as it was said in the movie Dutch, "nothing burps better than bacon!!!"

    My kids and I tried nutella for the first time on vacation this year. I hated it. I thought it would taste like hazel nuts but it just taste like chocolate - bad chocolate.
  • Mic-E 2012/09/18 23:12:39
    Bacon, for sure.
  • Solomonster 2012/09/18 22:58:52

    Oh my God, when I saw that poll question, I answered that I wanted to try the two mixed together! I have never even thought about bacon and nutella before that poll and now you're telling me THEY ALREADY HAVE IT?!

    D: I'm so on this.
  • Willy 2012/09/18 22:11:03
    A Nutella sandwich with a couple slices of bacon in it would probably be tasty.
