If you’ve been eating a lot of delivery and takeout meals over the last year, you’re definitely not alone. Curious what your neighbors have been ordering? DoorDash has released the most popular snacks of 2021 so far, and a fast-food staple came out on top.

The DoorDash Deep Dish Report surveyed 2,000 Americans to determine the biggest trends in pick-up and deliveries from restaurants and convenience stores. While the report looked at multiple trends, perhaps the most intriguing was the brand’s discovery of the most popular snacks.

French fries took the top spot as the most purchased food since the beginning of the year. Quesadillas came in second, but third place isn’t even occupied by a food—it’s iced coffee. A combo meal of a quesadilla, fries, and iced coffee sounds pretty stellar to us.

Other foods have also increased in popularity. Chocolate milkshakes saw a whopping 440% increase, and coming in at a close second was chicken nuggets with a 410% increase. Other notable trends included 63% of respondents wanting to try a new restaurant soon, and 47% saying that they want to try new types of foods.

If you’re trying to cut back on fast food and takeout, you can always make healthier versions of your favorite comfort foods at home.
