After a chaotic weekend of great wins and upsets, the Tar Heels are in it again — the Sweet 16. As any basketball fan knows, what happens next is impossible to predict. The best we can do here in Chapel Hill is cheer on the boys while sticking with our superstitions and traditions, especially those that involve food.
A PR rep from Grubhub sent us a list of food orders that spike during Carolina wins, which was pulled from Grubhub’s national online ordering database. Check out these trends and call up Asia Cafe because you’re getting egg rolls this weekend.
Egg rolls were ordered 269 percent more during UNC's winning game days than losing game days in Chapel Hill. And it's not just egg rolls that work — spring rolls were ordered 30 percent more as well!
“I’m surprised about the egg rolls, but hey, I’m always up for eating and some good superstition for the Heels," sophomore Hayley Scialdone said.
On UNC's winning game days, dumplings were ordered 160 percent more than they were on losing game days in Chapel Hill.
