Tripe Marketing Board chairman Sir Norman Wrassle broadly welcomed the news. "Nobody likes their product to appear in a list of hated foods, but if we have to be in one, it's obviously encouraging that we've beaten Marmite," he said.
Sir Norman said that tripe's position in the food league tables has fluctuated over the years. In 2014, it failed to appear in a top 10 list of disliked foods published by the food giant BirdsEye.
"These polls are just a bit of fun - here at the TMB we don't take them too seriously. But we've got celery in our sights for next year," he added.
