The ‘Happy Food’ list!

What food would you say makes you happy? Chocolate? Beer? Cakes?

Well, according to the Happy Food Index (complied by Sainsbury’s Live Well for Less), they’ve been beaten by a certain vegetable that brings tears to your eyes and make your breath smell…yep, totally random and unexpected – onions!!

Foods were rated by shoppers using 9 categories:
• Moreish
• Yummy
• Healthy
• Fashionable
• Comforting
• Looks
• Taste
• Smell
• Expense
