Last month, an Australian property developer claimed Millennials will never own their own home because they spend too much money brunching on avocado toast. Is that true? Well, according to a new survey, the answer is no. In fact, the poll, conducted by the Huffington Post and YouGov, finds that Millennials aren’t anymore obsessed with avocados than other age groups.
The survey finds that 57% of those under the age of 30 say they like avocados, but 66% of those over 30 like them too. In addition, while 28% of Millennials describe themselves as loving the fruit (yes it's a fruit), 35% of older adults would use the same word to describe their feelings about them.
As for wasting their money on avocado toast, that doesn’t hold much water either. Only 6% of Millennials say they've spent money on store-bought avocado toast, while 5% of older adults have done the same. Meanwhile, 14% say they’ve saved money by making it themselves at home, with 8% of those over 30 doing that as well.
- In other avocado news…In case you missed it, Trader Joe’s is making it easier for single folks to enjoy avocados without the waste. They are now selling bags of “Teeny Tiny” avocados that are the size of a lime and perfect for just one person, although they come six in a bag. Now single folks can enjoy a little avocado without having another half turning brown in the fridge.
