Bacon and Kale Lose Favor with Americans

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Who liked kale in the first place?

The leafy vegetable is not so popular anymore with Americans, according to Zagat's 2015 National Dining Trends Survey of over 10,700 diners across 17 major American cities.

Just 27 percent of respondents said they loved kale while 36 percent admitted that they're "over it."  The rest don't mind kale or have no opinion about it.

Perhaps even more surprising is America's attitude toward bacon. Thirty-four percent in the Zagat survey claim they're "over" bacon while 28 percent still profess a love for the pork product.

But the biggest shocker of all is that a majority of people either love or don't mind Brussels sprouts. Only 18 percent said they were "over it."

The survey also found that the average amount spent on dinner at a restaurant was $39.40 and 81 percent of respondents have sent food back to the kitchen. The same percentage admitted they've eavesdropped on other diners' conversations.
