39 PERCENT OF AMERICANS THINK USA SMELLS LIKE A BIG BARBECUE

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Does America smell like a big hunk of burning meat? Lots of Americans “stink” so.

Miller Lite recently asked Americans to name the smell that defined America best, and 39 percent said it’s the smell of a smoky, grease-laden barbecue.

  • 31 percent say apple pie is the smell most representative of America.

  • 12 percent say the U.S. smells like an ocean.

  • 68 percent say “freshly cut grass” is the smell that best defines summer. 17 percent think it’s suntan oil.

    When Miller asked Americans what smells they dislike, 57 percent are turned off by body odor, 26 percent hate the smell of bad breath, and 3 percent get grossed out by the smell of “musty sheets.”
