The World's Most-Instagrammed Food Is ...

Guess what the world’s most-Instagrammed food is. Go on. Guess.

Ice cream? Nope. It's hard to capture ice cream looking its best before it melts. (Find social-media-friendly ice cream styling tips here.) Salad? Sandwiches? Cupcakes? Nope, nope and nope.

The food the people around the globe Instagram most is ... pizza, beating out burgers 10 to one. That’s according to research sponsored by Chef Alessio Mecozzi and carried out by the communications firm Klaus Davi.

The researchers further found that people in New York liked to share snaps of their cheesy slices more than anyone else, Instagramming more #pizza photos than denizens of the Italian cities Naples, Rome, Milan and Bologna combined, Tgcom24 reports.

The second-most-Instagrammed food is sushi. Burgers are all the way down at number 10. And interestingly, Mecozzi told la Repubblica, men are more likely to take selfies with main dishes, while women prefer to take them with sweets. Food for thought.
