Have you ever wondered what exactly people buy the most of when they go grocery shopping? What about when they don’t actually go grocery shopping, but do it virtually through Instacart? Instacart has released a list of the items most sold on Instacart, and the results, as reported by Eat This, are a bit surprising.
The top five sold items include:
- Hass Avocados
- Honey Crisp
- Gala Apples
But, that list doesn’t include the number one item bought by shoppers on Instacart…and that is Bananas!
More than 100-billion bananas are eaten worldwide every year, and they are the most popular item purchased through Instacart. Instacart’s Trends Expert Laurentia Romaniuk told Eat This that most online orders containing bananas also contain items that would possibly be served or complement a banana.
And, to be very fair, bananas are not only delicious to eat by themselves, but Eat This points out that they are versatile in so many other food options. Like smoothies, banana bread, and ooh some good old banana pudding with the Nilla wafers….annnnd now I want banana bread and pudding LOL!
What is your most purchased item when you go to the grocery store? Do you think most people eat bananas just by themselves, or in something else like a smoothie?
