Whether it was a drunk night, a date-night, a family night or a lonely night where you cried into a pizza, Canadians ordered in a lot of food this year.

How do we know? Well, we talked to JUST EAT, a company that partners with restaurants to deliver across Canada, and they revealed some pretty telling trends of the past year. We’ll cut to the chase: you ate a lot of carbs. Here are 10 facts about Canadian eating behaviours from 2014:

More pizza news

JUST EAT delivered over 180,000 pizzas throughout Canada. Wow-za.

Montreal smoked meat

Quebec is the only province where “deli food” made the top 10 favourite types of food, and that probably has something to do with Celine Dion and her husband becoming owners of famed delicatessen, Schwartz’s. (Well, and Montreal smoked meat is delicious, of course.)

We could’ve cooked more

Throughout all of Canada, JUST EAT delivered over 2500 tonnes of takeout (which weighs about as much as 1,666 Volkswagen Beetles). Seriously, that’s a lot of people not cooking with some frequency.

Tacos, Tacos, Tacos

Toronto ordered more Mexican food than any other city in Canada.

London, Ontario likes dessert

Londoners do not like to bake, apparently. It’s the only city in Canada where desserts made the top 10 favourite types of food.
