Have you ever wondered what people buy the most when they go shopping? What about when they don’t actually go shopping, but do it virtually via Instacart? Instacart has published a list of the best-selling items on Instacart, and the results, as reported by Eat This, are a bit surprising.

The top five selling items include:

  • raspberries
  • Hass Lawyers
  • Blueberries
  • Honey Crispy
  • gala apples

But, this list does not include the number one item shoppers buy on Instacart…and that is Bananas!

Over 100 billion bananas are eaten worldwide each year, and they are the most popular item purchased through Instacart. Instacart trending expert Laurentia Romaniuk told Eat This that most online orders that contain bananas also contain items that could potentially be served or complemented with a banana.

And, to be very fair, bananas aren’t just delicious to eat on their own, but Eat This points out that they’re versatile in many other food options. Like smoothies, banana bread and ooh good old banana pudding with Nilla wafers….annnnd now I want banana bread and pudding LOL!

What is the item you buy the most when you go to the grocery store? Do you think most people eat bananas on their own or in something else like a smoothie?
