- According to a survey of 2,000 Britons across the country, 52 percent say jam
- Regarding the verdict, 56 percent of Britons insist that it should rhyme with & # 39; disappeared & # 39;
It is a question that divides the nation, but researchers claim to have finally solved the big scone debate.
A survey of 2,000 Britons from around the country showed 52 percent that jam should be spread before cream.
In contrast, only 25 percent believe that cream should go first, while another 19 percent insist that they don't care.
Only 25 percent of Britons think the cream should be used first, while an indifferent 19 percent insist that they really don't care
The news will be a bitter disappointment to those in Devon who traditionally first spread the clotted cream, while the Cornish will feel a sense of justification while they do it the other way around.
The research, conducted on behalf of Village Hotel Club, also discussed how the word & # 39; scone & # 39; must be pronounced.
The results were also decisive, with 56 percent agreeing that it should rhyme with & # 39; disappeared & # 39; while 44 percent said it should rhyme with & # 39; bot & # 39 ;.
Other nice findings suggest that the & # 39; ideal & # 39; afternoon tea on a summer day at 3 p.m. with four people is taken outside.
Candice Brown, ambassador for Village Hotel Club Food & Drink, said: “It is perhaps one of the most lengthy British debates, and although Village Hotel research shows that most people think it is jam for cream at a scone, but it's definitely jam after cream for me & # 39;
Egg and cress emerged as British favorite afternoon tea sandwich, followed by classic cucumber and smoked salmon and cream cheese.
More than two in ten would love a coronation chicken – first made in 1953 to celebrate the coronation of Elizabeth II – while 36 percent wanted a simple ham salad and 34 percent wanted tuna mayo.
Mark McMahon, General Manager at Village Hotel Club, said: “Given this new survey, more than 80 percent of people prefer to have afternoon tea than a pint of friends in a pub, we are proud that we are now offer this popular British pastime for a price that won't break the bank. & # 39;
