People haven’ really figured out what to do with all of this sudden free time, maybe because most of us are grappling with confusion and despair. Some folks have managed to give themselves a schedule. Most of us are just eating and sleeping throughout our days and into the night because time has lost all meaning.
Day? Night? Dinner? Brunch? None of it matters! Food, however, remains delicious which is why Uber Eats is doing such brisk business right now. Also because people can’t leave the house.
Uber Eats has been sharing some data about what people order when under extreme emotional distress, and it’s basically a lot of carbs according to the list of most popular foods by states, shared by Travel and Leisure Magazine.
Folks have eaten A LOT of french fries this past month, though the shape and consistency of those fries changes by state. The next two most popular dishes are pad thai and garlic naan.
Folks, ya gotta eat a vegetable once in a while or no one is making it through this.
Some of the most popular foods did surprise me. For dessert, the biggest orders were for tiramisu, baklava, and cheesecake—tiramisu doesn’t travel super well. Maybe it’s just too hard to make at home? There were also a lot of choices that didn’t surprise me at all. Pennsylvania is all over that Philly cheesesteak. Even when everything changes, some things never change.
