Grubhub has released its Taste of 2019 Year in Food report detailing food trends, consumer facts, state statistics and more. 

“Grubhub analyzed tens of millions of orders placed by more than 21 million diners on its platform to uncover the flavors and tastes rising up the ranks among today’s diners,” according to a news release. 

A key take-away from the report is that plant-based foods are not going anywhere. Cauliflower pizza rose in popularity by more than 650% throughout the year and was GrubHub’s top food of 2019. Spicy Brussels sprouts came in second place, followed by portabella empanadas.

Shockingly high numbers like this are primarily due to the relative newness of the items in question. When you have dependable YOY data you will see the true picture of popularity. This post makes it look like everyone on the planet had gone vegetarian (not vegitarian btw) and vegan. Not the case at all.
