From King crisps to Kerrygold butter, our expats in far-flung locations reveal what food they miss most from the Emerald Isle.
We're not surprised to find that Tayto Crisps topped the list of "most missed" food by Irish emigrants.
In a study conducted by Checkout magazine, 59 percent of returned Irish emigrants reported that they missed the crisps, while 38 percent said they missed the snack "a lot".
Here's a full list of the most-missed food, ranked by preference
1. Cadbury chocolate
You can stick your Hershey's.
2. Kerrygold butter
Smeared over toasted Batch bread... nothing beats it on a Sunday morning.
3. Barry's Tea
A Cork conspiracy?
4. Lyon's Tea
Robbed of third place.
Sorry? What is this overseas flat, black water you're trying to fob me off with waiter?
6. King Crisps
The 'pub' version deserve a special place in heaven.
8. Denny Rashers
Breakfast time back home.
9. Denny Sausages
10. Galtee Rashers
Stuck in between two slices of thick, white bread and plenty of butter.
Checkout editor Jenny Whelan said: "Irish consumers are known to be brand loyal, and emigration doesn’t seem to change this.
"I have no doubt that in the run up to Christmas, plenty of the products featuring in our study will be making their way to loved ones across the globe, so that even those who can’t make it back for the festivities can get a little taste of home."
