Some of MMR’s top selling food items for 2010 (AKA the foodie Oscars)

Going through my monthly reading pile, I finally got to the MMR “food and beverage report” for 2010. (AKA all of the top selling food items of 2010)

Why Food Network misses out on a “foodie Oscars” report is beyond me. I’m also surprised the “winners” aren’t plastering this information all over their products to boost sales.

MMR has all these categories in their report…

  • Cookies
  • Beer (domestic)
  • Ice Cream
  • Bottled Water
  • Potato Chips
  • Frozen Dinners (single)
  • Lunch Meat (refrigerated sliced)

  • Whole Milk (refrigerated)
  • Natural Shredded Cheese
  • Natural Cheese Chunks
  • Ground Coffee
  • Tortilla/Tostada Chips
  • Baby Formula (powder)
  • Bacon (refrigerated)
  • Candy (chocolate > 3.5 oz)
  • Snack Nuts
  • Sports Drinks (non aseptic)
  • Beer (domestic sub premium)
  • Wet Soup
  • Frozen Dinner Entrees (multi)
  • Tortillas / Taco Kits
  • Frozen Entrees (non breakfast)
  • Sugarless Gum
  • Salted Snacks (no nuts)
  • Condensed Wet Soup
  • Chocolate Candy (< 3.5 oz)
  • Cooking and Salad oils
  • Energy Drinks (non aseptic)
  • Natural Cheese Slices
  • Granola Bars
  • Refrigerated Breakfast Sausage / Ham
  • Non-chocolate Chewy Candy
  • Baby Food / Snacks
  • Bottled Fruit Drinks
  • Milk (skim / lowfat refrigerated)
  • Cereal (ready to eat)
  • Bread (fresh)
  • Table Wine
  • … but I’m only going to go over a few.
