Have you ever had the perfect taco? New research has identified the most popular combination for taco lovers nationwide.
What does the ideal taco look like? It's a surprisingly simple setup of chicken, lettuce, shredded cheese, and tomatoes, wrapped in a soft corn shell. A survey examining peoples’ taco preferences found that chicken is the number one protein of choice for tacos (26 percent).
In terms of other protein preferences, beef came close behind in second place as the most preferred option (24 percent) followed by fish (17 percent), shrimp (10 percent), and pork (9 percent).
The survey, conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Taco Del Mar, also split respondents by their preference for hard- or soft-shell tacos. And results showed how you take your taco may say more about you than you think.
Results found that hard-shell lovers also tend to have a hotter side since they were 71 percent more likely to find spice “very appealing” than soft-shell fans.
The poll also delved into the personality traits beyond the taco stand. It turns out that hard-shell taco eaters prefer dogs, while soft-shell fans love a cuddle with a cat.
When it came to heroes with capes, hard-shell fans are all about Batman. Results found soft-shell lovers are 40 percent more likely to prefer the Man of Steel himself, Superman.
Taco shell preference even revealed differences in sleep patterns. Hard-shell eaters are 41 percent more likely than soft-shell eaters to be early risers. Hard-shell lovers might get up so early since they’re 53 percent more likely to be light sleepers than soft-shellers.
When it comes to personality traits, hard-shellers described themselves as adventurous, curious, happy, hard-working, high-maintenance and organized. Soft-shell eaters said they were calm, clean, creative, friendly, and loyal.
Hard-shell fans tend to be more extroverted, while soft-shell lovers are more likely to be introverted.
The differences don’t stop there. Hard-shell fans are more likely to enjoy reading and audiobooks, while soft-shellers prefer to reach for the remote to turn on a TV show or movie.
