Grubhub Reveals What Foods Couples And Singles Order On Valentine’s Day

Some sort of enjoyment of edible items is part of the Valentine's Day ritual but what is the fave for couples?

February 14, 2019



Food! It's always a way to show how much you love someone! It’s Valentine’s Day and if your plans include ordering out, what you decide to chow on could vary a lot depending on whether you’re single or not.

Grubhub looked back on Valentine’s Day 2018 to see what couples prefer to order compared to the single folks and the results couldn’t be more different. The food delivery service finds that single people tend to go for comfort food on Valentine’s Day, with pizza puffs and burritos topping their list. But the data shows couples seem to want something lighter and their list is almost entirely sushi. According to Grubhub, that’s because sushi rolls are easy to share.

Here’s the full list of the top 10 foods people order on February 14th, broken down by couples and singles.


1. Pizza puff - 223% more ordered than couples

2. Chicken burrito - 210% more ordered

3. Chicken quesadilla - 161% more ordered

4. Bacon and egg sandwich - 140% more ordered

Hmm, not sure where Grubhub's survey info was collected but I can tell you right now, the hubby and I ain't ordering anything off that couple's list. We go for steak or any Mexican food. Nothing says I love you like feeling full and sitting on the couch binge watching your favorite TV show, which btw, mine: "Blue Bloods" or "How To Get Away With Murder"; his, "The Walking Dead." Now that's LOVE! ~grace
