Uber Eats Releases Cravings Report

Uber Eats has released its annual Uber Eats Cravings Report which outlines some of the most popular and unusual delivery requests.

The report identifies the following trends:

• Nix the onions: As more people head back to the office, consumers are requesting that onions be withheld on orders every day of the week and are favoring better breath.

• No way rosé: There was a decrease in rosé sales this summer, while lighter body reds and whites were on the rise.

• It’s getting hot in here: From mild to hot to true fire, Americans are craving more heat. Hot sauce was the top condiment this year.  

• Miss American Pie: The top dessert order this year was apple pie with nearly two million apple pie orders nationwide.

• From Dry January to Sober October: Zero-proof spirits are on the rise and according to Drizly data, “dry” months are more and more popular. In fact, during Dry January 2023, non-alcoholic beverages experienced 75 percent growth compared to the year prior.
