If you live in New York, you’re not the only one who has had a hard time finding an actual biscuit.
According to a new report, only a handful of the country’s top five snack brands offer biscuits, while just under half of all American adults eat them daily.
The National Consumers League found that only a third of Americans had a traditional meal at home, and that more than half of the nation’s households use only frozen and powdered versions of biscuits.
The report, which was released Tuesday, said that the lack of biscuit options makes it even more challenging for people to find healthy snacks, which is why the National Foundation for American Policy has launched the “Biscuit Crusade,” a national campaign to help drive awareness about the quality of biscuits and to make the foods that make them better.
The charity is urging people to use the campaign to share biscuits with their friends and family, or to purchase and donate to their local nonprofit.
“A biscuit is so much more than a sandwich,” said Catherine Crump, the group’s president and chief executive officer.
“It’s a rich, flavorful, nutritious breakfast or snack.
And it’s a way for families to support their communities.”
The biscuit crusade started as a pilot program to educate Americans about the nutritional value of breakfast foods.
The group hopes to raise $1 million in donations to purchase, preserve and distribute biscuits and other foods in the future.
“We’re committed to ensuring the biscuits we have are truly nutritious and delicious,” Crump said.
“And the best way to do that is to make sure they’re made from a nutritious source.”
Crump also said that her group’s research has shown that the majority of people who try to eat biscuits for breakfast have not eaten a single slice of bread since the morning.
“The biscuits themselves are actually pretty bland, which makes it harder to tell if you’re getting the real thing,” she said.
Crump noted that the National Consumers Organization’s findings have been corroborated by a recent survey of 1,000 Americans conducted by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.
The results showed that just over a third had not eaten bread since breakfast, and a full quarter of people said they would not eat a biscuit even if they could.
