“Alexa, Get Me a Donut” & 7 More Foods You Can Order by Voice

Alexa can do many things: tell your kids stories, play music and even settle arguments between siblings. Now you can order food with Alexa: all you need is an Amazon Alexa-enabled device (and an internet connection, of course) and you can order all the snacks, treats and groceries you need without ever having to lift a finger. Yay!

Dunkin’ Donuts

With the simple phrase, “Alexa, order from Dunkin’ Donuts,” and boom…donuts! Okay, okay. So it’s not exactly that easy. But you can kick off the entire virtual ordering process with this Alexa voice command.

To order through your Alexa-enabled device, you need to be a member of Dunkin’ Donuts’ DD Perks program. You also need to install the Dunkin’ Donuts skill on your device. After giving the voice command, you can choose from a previously visited Dunkin’ location, saved order and the type of pick-up you prefer. Pick-up options currently include in-store or drive-thru.

Domino’s Pizza

Oh, so you say you want pizza with your donuts? Well then install the Domino’s skill on your Alexa-enabled device. Just say, “Alexa, open Domino’s,” and connect to your chosen local Domino’s store. Not only can you order through your device, but Amazon’s Alexa will help you to track your pizza’s progress.

Pizza Hut

If you don’t have a local Domino’s, Pizza Hut also has an Alexa skill from which to order.  With the command, “Alexa, open Pizza Hut,” a default payment method and a Pizza Hut account you can order a pizza loaded with your favorite toppings.

Denny’s

“Alexa, open Denny’s” kicks off your ability to order from your previously selected meals. Start with the Denny’s app or their website to create an initial order. Next time, Alexa can help you to re-order.

Sheetz

Sheetz is much more than just a place to fuel your car. Now you can fuel your belly with an Alexa-enabled device, a Sheetz account and a previous order. Give the, “Alexa, ask Sheetz to order my favorite,” a go and you’re done.

Wingstop

Mmm. Wings. “Alexa, ask Wingstop to order wings” will help you to order from your nearest Wingstop restaurant.

Whole Foods

Definitely one of the best perks of Amazon buying Whole Foods is that you can use your Prime membership and your Alexa device to make a shopping list, order your groceries with Alexa and get everything delivered to your house. Easy peezy!

Pumpkin Spice Anything

It’s that time of year, and you’re on the hunt for pumpkin spice EVERYTHING. Amazon wants to make it easy with their Pumpkin Spice Tracker Alexa skill. Start with, “Alexa, open pumpkin spice tracker,” continue with, “who has pumpkin spice?” or, “where can I get pumpkin spice?” and your your device will help you to find your next PS-whatever fix.
