Pot noodles and pineapple peelers - Amazon's bestselling products in Belfast revealed

Amazon has released its Summer 2017 Trends Report, revealing the most popular items sold in Belfast so far this year - and it turns out we love nothing more than a pot noodle and peeling a pineapple.

The newly released report lists some of the most popular product trends across the UK.

In the food and drink category, Belfast saw large sales in Chicken and Mushroom flavour Pot Noodles, but that's not to say we don't look after our health as Sevenhills Wholefoods Raw Chia Seeds were also top of the list.

When it comes to books, it seems Belfast has been enthralled by Channel 4's television adaptation of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale which has seen sales soar in recent months.

Meanwhile, health expert Joe Wicks is proving to be as popular as ever - his book Lean in 15 - The Shift Plan: 15 Minute Meals and Workouts to Keep You Lean and Healthy is among the site's top sellers, and a particular favourite in Belfast.

Our top items for the home are a little more random as we enjoy using the Silentnight Deep Sleep Pillow as well as a pineapple peeler, corer & slicer - but it is important to get a good night's sleep after some strenuous pineapple peeling.

For health and beauty, it seems there's only one product at the top of our wish list and that's the Stargazer Glitter Fix Gel, but we also enjoy a bit of Activated Charcoal Natural Teeth Whitening Powder which has apparently been flying off the shelves.

So, a dazzling smile and a bit of glitter and Belfast is ready for a night out.

Looking at trends across the UK, it should come as no surprise Ed Sheeran is the most streamed artist so far this year, while Clean Bandit's hit Rockabye is the most streamed song.

Meanwhile, January saw Japan emerge as the most popular travel destination anticipated this year, with Rome, Berlin and Sri Lanka making the top 10 non-UK based travel books.

And it will not be a shock to know April saw a huge 721% month-on-month sales increase in fidget spinners.
