Chattanooga, Tennessee—

A new poll asked people which breakfast foods are the most overrated . . . underrated . . . and “appropriately rated.”

You’d THINK that the most divisive foods would be the trendy new “healthy” options.  And that’s true . . . but a surprising number of people also said BACON is overrated.  (???)

Over 10,000 people voted in the poll, and here’s how the foods are ranked . . . from MOST- to least-overrated:

1.  Avocado Toast . . . 57% said it’s overrated.

2.  Smoothie Bowls . . . 53%

3.  Bacon . . . 36%.  Maybe it’s just that people think bacon already gets a lot of love.  49% said it’s appropriately rated, and only 13% said its underrated.

4.  Donuts . . . 33%

5.  Yogurt Parfaits . . . 32%

6.  A tie between Cereal and Biscuits & Gravy, which are both at 30%.

8.  Oatmeal . . . 29%

9.  Scrambled Eggs . . . 26%

10.  Eggs Benedict . . . 25%

11.  Grits . . . 24%

12.  Pancakes . . . 23%.  They’re the most “appropriately rated.”

13.  French Toast . . . 22%

14.  Breakfast Burritos . . . 21%.  They’re the most UNDERRATED.
