When it comes to food, consumers in the US were most interested in the unicorn cake, a natural segue from unicorn lattes and unicorn toast of years past.

The recall of romaine lettuce in the US and Canada placed the salad green in second place, while the popularity of CBD gummies propelled the spiked confectionery to third place.

Overall, the list is dominated by searches for keto recipes — pancakes, cheesecake and chili — as followers of the top-ranked diet of 2018 also turned to Google for ideas on how to indulge in their favourite foods without breaking the rules.

1. Unicorn cake

2. Romaine lettuce

4. Keto pancakes
