The holidays are here and so is party season. Although you might think you're on your best behavior during get-togethers, most people admit to committing at least one food-related party foul, according to a new survey. Out of 1,000 adults surveyed, 61% admitted that they had committed a party faux pas in the past. Perhaps the most unsettling statistic is 36% of people said they've double-dipped. 47%—admit to talking with their mouth full, 28% confessed to touching food and putting it back, and nearly 25% said they've coughed or sneezed on food. Unfortunately, for those who have committed these blunders, their actions won't be forgotten anytime soon. A little more than half of the respondents said they remembered a guest's blunder from a year ago, and 20% recall one from more than five years ago. Interestingly, 48% of those surveyed said double-dipping is more likely to get them uninvited from future events compared to forgetting the host's name.
