Carried out by Kurkure, the popular South Asian snack brand, it was revealed that out of 2,000 Brits polled, almost half the nation (43%) believes people with unvaried food choices are less adventurous and, are less likely to take risks in other aspects of their lives.

Fortunately, the data also showed that of those questioned, 78% are open to taking those risks when it comes to food, with 47% admitting they're more adventurous nowadays with their food choices, than they would have been five years ago.

To add to this, 65% identify as ‘open-minded eaters’ who prefer to indulge in dishes with bold and strong flavours.

When it comes to a generational divide, Millennials are identified as ranking highest when exploring new dishes. A whopping 85% are open to experimenting with their food, with 75% keen to try new things with strong flavours.
