If you have ever flown before, then you know that you are often stuck with the limited retail options once you have passed security. Hudson, which is North America’s largest airport convenience retailer, recently released a list of their top 10 items that they have sold over the past year.
It is clear that we buy things to consume, when we are at the airport! The top 10 list is:
- Dasani bottled water (20 oz)
- Glaceau Smartwater (20 oz)
- Large Dasani (one liter)
- Glaceau Smartwater (one liter)
- Glaceau Smartwater (23.8 oz)
- Diet Coke (20 oz)
- Coca-Cola (20 oz)
- M&M Peanut king-size
- Coca-Cola Zero (20 oz)
- The Wall Street Journal
Eight of the top 10 items sold are drinks, with M&M’s the only food item making the list. Of course, this is likely the byproduct of regulations which do not permit you with taking liquids across security. The Wall Street Journal was the only non-drink/food item that managed to make the top 10 list.
