Which brands do today’s youngest adults like most? If Netflix or YouTube come to mind, you’re right on track.
A 2019 survey from Morning Consult, a global tech company that focuses on collecting and organizing survey data, recently took a survey of Generation Z consumers to find out which brands they liked most. The study measured things like favorability, trust and community impact.
Generation Z – the demographic that comes after millennials – includes those born between 1995 and 2015. Today, the oldest Gen Z-ers are graduating college and the youngest are just getting ready to start school.
This survey, though, only included results from Gen Z adults, who are between the ages of 18 to 21. The data was collected between Jan. 1 and Feb. 28, 2019 and surveyed 1,435 American Gen Z adults, according to Morning Consult.
Here’s a look at the brands Gen Z loves most.

Nacho Cheese or Cool Ranch? Gen Z isn’t picky.
This generation grew up with Super Mario Kart, too – it just looked a bit better than the original graphics us millennials remember.
