Uber Eats is one of the most popular online food ordering and delivery platforms in the country. Millions of users order food through the app, and Uber Eats has studied those orders to determine what was popular in 2018 and what will be popular in the coming year.
According to its data, Uber Eats determined that toast, avocado, “goth food,” cucumber, wings, tofu, soup, celery, tuna, and tacos were the ten trendiest foods this year. Other foods are on the rise, and Uber Eats expects them to make a huge impact in 2019.
One of the biggest food categories will be clean eating. Health, wellness, and sustainability are on the minds of consumers, which means that clean eating staples like meat alternatives (like tofu and seitan) and plant-based foods will be popular orders.
Alternative milks are also a hit with consumers. Many are looking for dairy alternatives, which is why pea milk has risen to near the top of the rankings for trendy 2019 items.
