Ireland's 10 favourite burger toppings have been decided

And some of them might surprise you.

WE KNOW THAT Ireland is a nation of burger lovers – but what people choose to put on top of them varies wildly.

Now, a study has revealed the country’s favourite burger toppings – and the percentage of people who take each one. Hold on tight, here they are in descending order:

10. Gherkins (28%)

And there you have it. The top 10 burger toppings in Ireland – in all their glory. Cheddar cheese has proven the most popular but the fact that gherkins just sneak on to the list might be a contentious issue for some.

The survey, done by the Guinness Storehouse for its St. Patrick’s Day Festival, also revealed that pineapple is enjoyed by 9 percent of Irish people on their burger.

The concept of pineapple on pizza is already a hotly debated subject. Now, this is taking it to the next level.

So, we’re asking – is pineapple a legitimate burger topping? 

Poll Results:

This shouldn't even be a question. Pineapple on burgers? Never. (1023)
No, absolutely not (579)
Yes, of course it is (558)
