76 per cent of people in B.C. say they would "definitely" or "probably" eat a pizza topped with pineapple

39 per cent of British Columbians say they would consider putting ketchup on their steak

Fewer than one-in-five Canadians would try two Atlantic delicacies: cod tongues and scrunchions

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — British Columbians are the Canadians most likely to put pineapple on pizza and the least likely to put ketchup on their steak, according to a new survey.

Numbers on Canadians’ food choices were released by Vancouver researcher Mario Canseco Friday.

76 per cent of people in B.C. say they would “definitely” or “probably” eat a pizza topped with the controversial tropical fruit. In Quebec, that rate drops to 57 per cent.

When it comes to ketchup on steak only 39 per cent of British Columbians say they would consider it. That number jumps to 57 per cent for Quebecers.

Some food preferences, however, are consistent across the country.

“Practically four-in-five Canadians said they would ‘definitely’ or ‘probably’ eat poutine,” according to Canseco. “Fewer than one-in-five Canadians would try two Atlantic delicacies: cod tongues and scrunchions.”

British Columbians are also the most likely of all Canadians to eat plant-based burgers.
