What food and drink are British expats craving the most?

When you’re giving up smoking, cravings are one of the biggest hurdles you have to overcome. But it’s not just smokers who experience cravings, with Brits living abroad craving all sorts of home comforts.

To find out what British expats are craving the most, our researchers recorded Google searches for British staples across 25 different countries.

What are British expats craving the most?

Scones were found to be the most popular craving, with over 1.7 million monthly searches for the much-loved British staple.

Whilst Brits may be divided on the correct pronunciation of ‘scone’ and whether the jam or cream should be added first, Brits abroad can all agree on missing the taste of the traditional baked good.

It should, therefore, come as no surprise that clotted cream, a popular accompaniment to scones, ranked in 47th place.

Ranking in second was Worcestershire sauce with over 280,000 monthly searches, with Yorkshire puddings ranking in third with over 240,000 monthly searches.
