Blueberries, pears among Amazon’s best-selling delivered groceries

Online sales giant Amazon recently released U.S.-only seasonal and year-end highlights of data from its shoppers in what it said was a record-breaking year and holiday season.

Blueberries were among the best-selling items for grocery delivery, according to the press release from Amazon. Other healthy best-sellers included avocados, spinach and pears.

Amazon said it delivered tens of millions grocery items from Whole Foods Market and Amazon Fresh this holiday season. The number of Prime members who tried grocery delivery for the first time this holiday season increased by more than 80%. Prime members ordered more than double the number of grocery items this holiday season compared to last year.

In addition to delivery sales, millions of Prime members enjoyed exclusive Prime savings at Whole Foods Market this holiday season, and saved “tens of millions of dollars” on exclusive savings, according to the release.

“This holiday season has been better than ever thanks to our customers and employees all around the world,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO. “On behalf of all Amazonians, we wish everyone the happiest of holidays and a fantastic 2020.”
