Spicy, Spicy, Spicy! 

Turns out, we were all about that spice in 2023. A crazy 91,000 peeps added Sriracha to their meals. Maybe ’cause it was in short supply, but hey, absence makes the heart grow fonder, right? The spicy winners according to Grubhub:

  • Spicy potato soft tacos
  • Spicy chicken sandwich
  • Spicy tuna roll
  • Hot and sour soup
  • Drunken noodles

Sadly, they didn’t drop any info on Tums usage for those spicy nights.

Top-Side Hustle: French Fries

 French fries ruled the side dish kingdom, with over 600,000 folks choosing this salty goodness with a salad. And to wash it down? Crisp Diet Coke – in-office orders spiked by more than 17% this year.

Late Nights and Chaos 

Late-night coffee runs were a thing – over 10 million cups poured in after dark. And guess what? Dairy milk made a comeback in those cups! Also, we chomped through 6.9 million pickles – blame it on TikTok and its pickle craze.

Dinner Drama 

Hawaiian pizza made a surprising comeback – Grubhub saw a 33% rise in pineapple-topped pies. And Pinterest reported more searches for pineapple-related stuff too. Looks like pineapples might be having their moment!
