These are the basic foods for this summer

How excited are people for summer?

A third of Americans are so excited about this summer that they consider the start of the season to be before June (31%).

That’s according to a recent Chinet and OnePoll survey of 2,000 Americans.

Respondents even start to change their wardrobe for summer clothes in April (26%).

And Americans plan to keep busy this summer, with 68% saying they are likely to attend a lot of social gatherings this season.

The average respondent plans to go to the beach four times this summer and bring staples like chips (57%), lemonade (56%), iced tea (55%), fresh fruit (54%), and sandwiches (51%).

Similarly, respondents plan to go to five barbecues, expecting to eat hamburgers (77%), hot dogs (72%), chicken (65%), and ribs (62%).

Potato salad (62%) and corn (53%) are also summer staples, with respondents saying they are important side dishes for any barbecue.

Food makes summer more joyful. Seven in 10 believe that some foods taste better during the summer (71%), such as watermelon (74%), ice cream (68%) and lemonade (59%).

Barbecue staples like rotisserie chicken (54%), hot dogs (54%) and corn (54%) also made the list of foods that taste best in the summer.

“Summer is a great time to gather your friends and family for a cookout,” said Melissa Rakos, Chinet’s brand manager. “Whether it’s hosting a backyard barbecue, dining by the pool, disposable tableware means more time spending with loved ones and less time worrying about cleaning up messy meals.”
