Is Singapore a nation of chocolate lovers? According to iPrice, Singaporeans' love for chocolate knows no bounds, with the little red dot ranking second for having the biggest sweet tooths in Southeast Asia. But, which neighbourhood is the true chocoholic and what are Singaporeans' most popular choco-treats? Deliveroo, Singapore's favourite food delivery service, scours its chocolate orders to uncover Singapore's biggest sweet tooths.
West Side, Choco-Side?
While we know Singaporeans have a special love for chocolate, the most passionate chocolate lovers seem to congregate in the West. According to Deliveroo's data, residents in the Bukit Timah and Queenstown made a staggering more than 70,000 chocolate orders in the past year, exceeding those from their Northern counterparts in Woodlands by seven times! Residents from the East at Katong and Geylang come in a close second, while Orchard and Tanglin rank at third place for the highest chocolate orders in Singapore.
Chocolate is a post-dinner delight
Based on Singaporeans' chocolate-ordering habits, the best time to indulge in a chocolate-y treat is at the end of the day. Deliveroo's data reveals that dinner is the most popular time for chocolate-flavoured orders on the app, with lunch following at a close second. What better way to end the night than with a choco-to-die-for treat?
Singaporeans love chocolate on…..everything!
Globally, nine out of ten people love chocolate. Besides the fact that it tastes great, chocolate also comes with health benefits such as boosting serotonin and dopamine levels. It comes with no surprise that Singaporeans welcome chocolate with open arms. Deliveroo's deep dive found that chocolate items of all kinds are well-loved within the local community. Singaporeans' top five favourite choco-indulgences? Chocolate chip cookies, chocolate pastries, chocolate shakes or chocolate lattes, chocolate toppings on ice cream or yogurt and the much beloved chocolate ice cream.
Is World Chocolate Day an unofficial national holiday?
The month of July saw the highest number of chocolate orders. Could the peak in orders be locals celebrating the month of World Chocolate Day? We'd love to ask the Singaporean who made the largest chocolate order on Deliveroo in the past year - spending a whopping $538.92 on Tony's Chocolonely bars from Little Farms!
