It would appear Red Deerians have a craving for milkshakes.
So far in 2019, milkshakes have been the most popular item on the food delivery app Skip the Dishes, with nearly 6,000 orders.
“With all those orders, you could fill three-quarters of the seats at a Rebels game in the Centrium,” the company said in a release Thursday.
The second most popular order was the McDouble meal, with more than 5,500 orders. Pita wrap meals were the third most popular item, with 4,500 orders.
Nationally, the top three ordered items were butter chicken, poutine and dynamite rolls.
Red Deer has more than 150 restaurants on Skip the Dishes. The most popular local restaurants are Burger Boy, Buster’s Pizza, Donair and Pasta, and Indian Flame and Pizza.
The biggest order in Red Deer was $550. This didn’t come close to Canada’s largest order, which totalled $4,004.
One person in Red Deer used Skip the Dishes 414 times this year. The most frequent orderer in Canada had 764.
Compared to 2018, Red Deerians have placed 53 per cent more orders.
