Uber Eats Cravings Report: Unusual Delivery Requests + More
Recently, Uber Eats examined people’s delivery habits through its Annual Cravings Report. This report contains a wide range of unique order combinations, timely trends, food and alcohol pairings, and distinctive delivery requests, covering everything from necessities like toilet paper to condiments like ranch dressing.
Odd delivery combinations.
According to the report, this year saw an interesting trend, with combinations like cottage cheese and mustard gaining popularity. For those looking for even more unconventional examples, pairings like steak and jelly or butter and pickled onions were also noted. The list also featured more conventional combinations like burrito bowls with cheese and wings served with ranch dressing. Interestingly, the report highlighted preferred food and alcohol pairings, including ribeye steak with vodka and the classic duo of a cheeseburger and a margarita.
The most frequently ordered item turned out to be French fries, and other top contenders included garlic naan, pad Thai, miso soup, and California rolls.
Delivery orders often come with specific instructions; this year was no exception. Common requests such as “no onions” and “dressing on the side” remained popular, alongside newer preferences like “no slaw” and “extra gravy.”
Unique delivery request.
What truly stands out in this year’s Uber Eats Annual Cravings Report are the most unique and detailed requests made by customers from across the United States throughout the year. For instance, one customer made a bold request for “sauce on everything,” insisting that their food be completely drenched with sauce.
Another customer, with a rather strong preference, demanded that their meal be packed in a square container instead of a circular one. “I refuse to eat any food if presented in a circle container,” they said. Meanwhile, a whimsical request emerged, with someone stating, “My cats think your chicken is crack, so this is for them!”
There was even a somewhat “self-punishing” request that left no room for doubt. “I’m very serious about my spice, so please make it super super super hot, fire spicy. Like, make me cry hot!!! More [fire emoji] Please make me hurt! Let’s get as spicy as possible. Hotter, the better!!!”
