Mexican Beats Curry to No 1

Here is an interesting article from the DAILY MIRROR about our changing food habits:-

Mexican food overtakes curry as Brits' favourite - blowing £101 MILLION on tortillas a year
 

We spend nearly twice as much on Mexican meal kits than on the ­ingredients for curries, a list of the best-selling ethnic ingredients revealed
 

Hungry Brits have a growing appetitefor the joy of Mex over spicy curries.

We spend nearly twice as much on tortillas and Mexican meal kits than on the ­ingredients for curries, a list of the best-selling ethnic ingredients revealed.
 
The table showed our spending on all such items soared by 12.8%, to £264million, in one year.
 
This reflects more exotic tastes, inspired by TV chefs, and a wish to save cash by cooking dishes from scratch.
 
The list from industry analysts Kantar revealed that we blew £101million on tortillas and £67.5million on Mexican meal kits.
 
We forked out £27.7million on ­poppadoms in the year to the end of August and our total outlay on ­ingredients for make-our-own curries climbed up to £90.3million.
 
Meanwhile the sales of ethnic ready-meals fell by 5%.
 
The supermarkets are responding to an influx of other culturesby stocking a wider variety of goods, said trade journal The Grocer.
 
A spokesman for The Grocer said: “The explosion in world food is the result not just of foreign travel and celebrity chefs but the rise of a truly multicultural society.
 
"Mexican meal kits and tortillas are the biggest sellers in the world food ingredients aisle.”
