(NEXSTAR) – Just as our doctors have repeatedly asked us, Instacart has come forward and found out what we’ve all been eating over the past year.
Instacart, an online ordering and delivery platform for groceries, has delved into its data to identify the most popular supermarket purchases across the United States, both nationally and locally. Overall, the results suggest a shift away from pandemic-era purchases (hand sanitizers, sanitizing wipes, yeast for bread, etc.) and toward more items that suggest a return to normal buying habits.
However, it should be noted that Instacart’s “A Year in the Grocery” report is based on data collected between January 2021 and November 2021, and does not necessarily reflect how our nation’s purchases have changed in response to the dominance of omicron varoceries in the United States.
Another caveat: The report takes into account only Instacart delivery purchases, and therefore provides a limited look at the nation’s grocery-buying habits.
Here is a look at some of the most popular foods from all over the Twin:
The most famous foods
sound: Elbow pasta, prepared green salads, empire apples, heavy cream, chicken cutlets
Canisto: Single coffee, prepared green salads, pickles, brioche bread, iced cake
Corning: Heavy Cream, Vidalia Onion, Single Coffee, Yellow Corn, Empire Apple
Hornell: Prepared green salads, prune juice, one time coffee, deli sushi, chicken cutlets
horse heads: Martini mixers, deli sushi, cannoli, prepared green salad, empire apple
Montour Falls: Frozen cake, wet cat food, facial tissues, chocolate candy, mint

The nation’s fastest-growing groceries, at least for the majority of 2021, indicated more on-the-go lifestyle purchases than in 2020. Among them, Americans bought more cereal bars, prepackaged sandwiches, and energy drinks, along with more traditional household staples. Like Gemelli pasta and frozen French toast.
