So things are not what they were in the world of food during this time of self isolation and lockdown.
So with takeaways now ahuge thing in many of our lives, what is our favourite food?
We are now a month into our COVID-19 staying at home experience and we are ordering on line and by phone like we never have before.
Deliveroo has just released some figures giving us a bit of insight what we have been ordering and how often.
There has been a 597 percent increase in orders for the perennial long time favourite Fish and Chips, making it by far our number one favourite lockdown food.
We are also letting our sweet tooth go to town, even if we haven’t been able to, with ice cream orders up by 139 percent
We also are eating earlier, with orders shifting from just after 7pm on a weekday to 6.23pm. we obviously just can’t wait even that 40 odd minutes.
Until last month, ordering was most popular on a Saturday, now it looks like we can’t wait for our weekends to start as our big takeaway day is now Fridays.
In 2019 Deliveroo’s most popular menu item was burgers, now we are really getting into Pizza, with it being the most searched food category, followed by Thai and Sushi.
The amount we are odering each time has significantly increased as well, with Deliveroo seeing some of it’s largest orders with group meals rather than single meals.
