Lemon-lime soda, navy comforter among top ordered items in 2021
This year’s stay-at-home economy was fueled by chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, lemon-lime soda, and mac and cheese bites.
Driving the news: Those were the top three convenience items delivered by DoorDash, according to the company’s latest trend report.
- Atop the household category: Navy comforters, smart-home items and garment racks — along with irons, accent tables, nonstick baking pans and rolling office chairs.
- Most ordered foods: French fries, chicken nuggets and gyro bowls were the top three.
- New England clam chowder, churros, brown sugar tater tots, soup dumplings and poke bowls rounded out the bottom 20.
The big picture: DoorDash is expanding delivery services into ultra-fast groceries, starting with New York City.
- The speed and scale race has spread across retail and pushed investors into startups like Gopuff, which just raised $1.5 billion.
