Belfast people are buying pineapple peelers and Pot Noodles from Amazon

 Pot Noodles are a firm favourite among Belfast's Amazon shoppers

AMAZON has revealed what Belfast people have been buying from the site this year and it's a unusual mix of items.

Raw chia seeds and Pot Noodle chicken and mushroom flavour were the most popular foods purchased from the online shop while Belfast bookworms have been ordering copies of The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood.

The dystopian novel was turned into a 10-part TV series which concluded at the weekend.

Joe Wicks' Lean in 15 - The Shift Plan: 15 Minute Meals and Workouts to Keep You Lean and Healthy was second on the most ordered book list.

Top choice in cosmetics is Stargazer Glitter Fix Gel which glitter enthusiasts use to adhere the sparkly stuff to their skin and hair while Silentnight deep sleep pillows and a pineapple peeler, corer and slicer are the best sellers in Amazon's home section.

Margaret Attwood's The Handmaid's Tale was published in 1985
