Minnesota’s Most Popular Delivery Item Won’t Make You Skinny & It’s Not Pizza
Right now everyone, if they are eating out, they are ordering off the online menus. Going to get take-out and trying to support local businesses as much as possible. But it's WHAT we are ordering that is making this weird.
There was a survey conducted to find out what the most popular item was in each state since mid-March with the quarantine was issued. There are a couple of things that are super weird on this list. There is at least one thing that I had to look up to see what it actually was, and then there's Minnesota. We have the lone bird on this survey. According to Yelp and their survey, the most popular item for delivery is... Donuts. Donuts? Yes. Donuts. First of all- weird. And here in St. Cloud we don't even have a donut shop, per se, do we? We used to have Krispy Kreme. That went out of business fairly quickly. We don't have a Dunkin Donuts. We used to have a Mr. Donut. That's been gone for decades. I would have thought it would have been pizza, or burgers, or tacos, or something else more normal. Nope- we go with donuts.
The item that I didn't know what it was, and had to look up was Bubble Tea. What the heck is THAT? Michigan, Hawaii, and California have this as their most popular item. If you, like me don't know what this is... here ya go:
Bubble tea is a Taiwanese tea-based drink invented in the 1980s, which is shaken with ice to create the "bubbles", a foamy layer on top of the drink; chewy tapioca balls are added as well. Ice-blended versions are frozen and put into a blender, resulting in a slushy consistency.
