Academic study concludes "being hangry" is real

From the study's conclusion:

The results of the present study suggest that the experience of being hangry is real, insofar as hunger was associated with greater anger and irritability, and lower pleasure, in our sample over a period of three weeks. These results may have important implications for understanding everyday experiences of emotions, and may also assist practitioners to more effectively ensure productive individual behaviours and interpersonal relationships (e.g., by ensuring that no one goes hungry)

Notably the study was of 121 particpants, who self reported over a three-week period. So it is not a huge sample size, and self-reporting is always suspect.
