1. United States
To many, bacon and eggs is the quintessential American breakfast. But it wasn’t always this way — even just a century ago, the average American usually had something simple like toast and coffee. So what caused the change? Well, you can thank Edward Bernays, the father of public relations and Sigmund Freud’s nephew, for that. Bernays, greatly influenced by the work of his famous uncle, was hired by a bacon manufacturer to boost sales. Doctors that he surveyed said that hearty breakfasts were the way to go, so Bernays began promoting bacon and eggs as the all-American breakfast. His campaign, it seems, was quite successful!
