Not only can Grubhub deliver your favorite restaurant takeout, but they can also deliver your favorite snacks from local convenience stores.  Grubhub analyzed customer orders to see what America’s favorite snack foods are from the past year.  In honor of National Snack Food Month, check out their list of the Top Snacks and see if any of your favorites made the list:
