Very disturbing

Food delivery apps are very common nowadays. But a recent study shows that 1 out of 4 food delivery drivers admit to "taste testing" your food before delivering it to the customer.

Is the convienence worth it though? The study was done by restaurant food suplier and distributor US Foods and had ask both customers and delivery workers about their "habits and pain points" of the service.

Some responses included attitudes towards tipping, how long it took people to get their food, and more. On the other end of the spectrum, it did show the ugly side of the business with some unsettling information such as taking a few fries out of a burger order.

The US Foods survey provided data out of the 1,518 American adults who used food delivery app services with ages ranging 18 - 77 with a median age of 31. Also, 497 people identified themselves as "delivery workers".

The study shows that the average American has about two food delivery food apps on their phone in which they order an average of three times per month.

With this study now in the public eye, do you still feel comfortable ordering food from a delivery service?
