The #1 Takeout Food Among College Students Might Surprise You


Back in college, we couldn’t go two days without scarfing down a slice of pizza. The relatively cheap takeout option was split between friends and classmates alike. Turns out, there’s a new popular food among the college crowd these days.

According to USA Today, the top takeout food among college students is now: Frozen Yogurt. In a recent posting of its ordering data, GrubHub listed the top ten foods ordered by college students in its database.

GrubHub, a major online food ordering company, has operations in hundreds of major U.S. cities as well as London. It’s fair to say the data is accurate.

Other foods that made the list were waffle fries, chicken souvlaki pita, chocolate chip brownies, hibachi chicken, vegetarian spring roll, sweet and sour chicken, pizza, buffalo wings and California rolls.

Why froyo owns the #1 spot is tough to say.

It is, however, awesome to see folks ordering such diverse dishes these days. Maybe in a few years, we’ll see our cake-sadilla make the list.
