Fast Food sector companies all keep track of their customers’ ordering stats. Sometimes the results are obvious; other times they’re surprising. And sometimes, things folks ask Uber Eats to deliver are just plain strange – but always funny…
Apple Pie: The most-ordered dessert from Uber Eats in 2023…
As just about everybody knows, Uber Eats is a leading Fast Food sector delivery service. And the folks on the bikes have been tucking away the strangest customer requests of the past year in what has become an annual event: The UE 2023 Cravings Report.
“We’re back with the fifth annual Uber Eats Cravings Report, our snapshot of the most popular, the most unusual, and downright surprising delivery requests. As the saying goes: ‘Nothing tastes better than the thing you want to eat right now.’ So whether it’s unexpected combos like seaweed and pasta sauce, gobs of wild Gushers, or classy indulgences like lobster tail with apple-infused whiskey, we’ve got you covered,” Marco Vita, senior data scientist at Uber Eats told Food & Wine.
Behold! The top food delivery choices…
I don’t think anyone will be surprised to learn that French Fries were the top menu item ordered for delivery. But the remaining Top-5 finishers aren’t exactly what I expected: Garlic Naan Bread, Pad Thai, Miso Soup, and California sushi rolls.
Apple pie was the number one dessert, with almost 2 million slices ordered nationwide in 2023.
Hot Sauce was the number one condiment request.
… And the Top 10 customer requests
- No onions
- Dressing on the side
- Extra soy sauce
- Sauce on the side
- No lettuce
- No jalapenos
- Extra gravy
- No slaw
But the best is yet to come!
Customers with very specific tastes weren’t afraid to assert them:
“Please fry my chicken VERY hard. Very very crispy. Almost burned!”
“Extra cheese sauce please 🙂 I’ll pay for it. I’m also drunk asf so if you load it up you’d make me the happiest drunk girl ever.”
“Sauce on everything. I mean it. Literally drown my food in that amazing nectar.”
“Hello again wonderful dreamy pizza makers! Can I please get tons of green olives and mushrooms? ”
“I’m very serious about my spice so please make it super super super hot, fire spicy. Like make me cry 😢 🥵 hot!!! More 🔥🔥🔥🔥 Please make me hurt! Let’s get as spicy as possible. Hotter the better!!!”
