A survey commissioned by The Little Potato Co. found that 55 percent of Americans rank potatoes as their favorite comfort food.

Spuds outranked pizza (21 percent), macaroni and cheese (15 percent) and pasta (9 percent), according to a news release.

Another finding from the survey was that one in four millennials would give up cheeseburgers if forced to choose between them and potatoes.

The survey, which polled more than 1,000 people, found that nearly half of Americans eat potatoes a few times a week, with dinner as the most popular occasion (67 percent). The popularity of potatoes expands every holiday season, when more people (75 percent) eat potatoes than any other time of year.

National Potato Day is Aug. 19.
