Choco lava cake saw an increase of 73 per cent. There were four times more donuts orders and red velvet items were also ordered 3.5 times more, read a statement. The 2018 Valentine's Day food trends are on the basis of Swiggy's order analysis of the cities of Bengaluru, Mumbai, Delhi/NCR, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Pune, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh and Jaipur.
"Despite the usual excitement around making Valentine's Day special, an increasing number of urbanites made the choice to spend it at home with their loved ones.
"Deterred by urban challenges like long working hours, traffic, planning and reservation and parking, many couples opted to have their Valentine's dates over great food, in the privacy of their homes," said Srivats TS, Vice President, Marketing at Swiggy.
