Americans report devouring these foods can instantly put them in a better mood

A new survey of 2,000 nationally representative Americans analyzed the relationship between our moods and the food we eat and found it really is a complicated relationship to say the least. Sixty-six percent of respondents said what they eat greatly depends on their mood, but 65% also said the reverse is true - their mood can dictate what they eat that day. A quarter of respondents said they opt for a salty treat on a bad day and 31% prefer something sweet. Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of meal kit company HelloFresh, the survey found the top foods respondents said they reach for when having a bad day included chocolate (46%), fast food and candy (both at 36%) and chips (35%).
