A poll on popular competitions and shopping website http://www.shoppersbonus.com.au has found that 58% of respondents prefer chicken salt over plain salt when it comes to hot chips.

Editor and competitions specialist, Craig Seitam, launched the poll as a bit fun over the new year period, but was genuinely interested in the results.

Craig commented, “I’m a plain salt man from way back, but noticed over the years that fish and chip shop staff reach for the chicken salt first. I don’t know when or where the rules were changed, but my first thoughts were that chicken flavour may be cheaper ……. but surely not more popular?”

ShoppersBonus.com.au has over 12,000 members, 92% are women and the majority are aged 25-50.

The survey question was “On hot chips do you prefer plain salt, chicken salt or no salt?”

Results (from 1,250 respondents) were as follows;

- 58% like chicken salt
- 37% like plain salt
- 5% like no salt

Craig was stunned at the results, and said “chicken salt plainly (no pun intended) makes no sense. When was the last time you saw someone buy chicken chips at a service station, or offered them at a party? I’m certain it’s the same stuff.

At the beginning of the poll, Craig declared to his members that plain would win the day. Humbled in defeat, though, he won’t be switching sides any time soon. “Chicken salt is so yellow it could be useful in a power blackout, but as a condiment? No way.”

As author of humorous read “Competitions – The Book”, Craig is always on the lookout for poll questions that answer the more light-hearted questions of life. “If this poll has achieved anything, it’s given fans of chicken salt a small amount of bragging rights.”
