Are you more of a mayo, ketchup or mustard kind of person? Well according to a recent survey mustard is seemingly becoming Croats thing now…

Croatians consumed 210.4 million kuna worth of mustard, ketchup and mayonnaise in the year between April 2015 and March 2016, according to research conducted by Ja Trgovac magazine and Hendal agency. The report revealed that in the same period 6.3 million kilograms of mustard, ketchup and mayonnaise were sold. The research did not include data from Cash & Carry outlets or discount wholesalers.

Mustard has eclipsed ketchup as the most popular condiment in Croatia according to the study. The data revealed that there has been an increase in the amount of mustard and mayonnaise consumed, whilst there has been a drop in the amount of ketchup purchased. 89.3% of citizens surveyed said they consumed mustard, whilst 80.6% said they used ketchup. 77% of people said they used mayo.

76.6% of people surveyed said that they enjoyed mustard with a sausage or frankfurter, whilst 10.5% liked a bit with meat. 2.1% said that they put mustard in a sandwich.
