The humble toasted treat bagged the top spot, closely followed by cheese and onion crisps and a bacon butty with ketchup – but do you agree?

As the nation continues to self-isolate and work-from-home, it seems we're snacking, cooking and baking more than ever.

Social feeds are flooded with images of freshly baked treats and carefully crafted cuisine, spurred on by the lockdown.

And now the ultimate snack of choice has been named – and it's the humble cheese on toast which sits at number one.

The tasty toasted treat has been crowned the nation's favourite snack, beating other tempting nibbles like Hobnob biscuits, crisps and even a bacon butty with ketchup to the number one position.

Closely behind, at position number three, sits a bacon sandwich with ketchup. And we're not too surprised.
