Japan Spends More Money on Bread Over Rice
I came across this interesting (but rather random) article and though I’d share it with you guys.
Seems like Azuma from “Yakitate Japan!” can rejoice as a recent survey done in Japan has showed that Japan households spend more money on bread over rice.
“The average household spent £214 on rice last year, marking a 4.1% drop in rice purchases compared with the previous year.
Meanwhile, spending on bread rose by 0.2% to £218 per household, according to findings of an Internal Affairs Ministry survey.”
I’m definitely skeptical over how the survey was conducted and how accurate it is but… I think it’s interesting to note that there definitely is an increase in bread consumption in Japan.
So my question to you is, what’s your bread consumption like? How often do you eat it?
Personally, I grew up eating rice and I’ve only started to eat bread everyday out of convenience.
If I were left with a choice of either having rice or bread for the rest of my life, I think I would have to stick with rice. What about you?
