Jennifer Lopez, often hailed as a New Yorker, has found herself at the centre of a storm brewing in the streets of the Big Apple.


Her bodega order is a seemingly innocuous combination that has ignited a frenzy of amusement among locals, according to the New York Post.

In a resurfaced clip from a 2022 interview with Vogue, Lopez confidently talked about her go-to bodega order: a ham and cheese on a roll. She also added that she likes to add a small bag of chips, and an “orange drink.” She then added a cryptic tagline, “If you know, you know.”

But it appears that knowing is precisely the conundrum that has flummoxed New Yorkers.


TikTokers, ever the keen observers of cultural nuances, wasted no time in breaking down Jennifer Lopez’s request.

From Alex Duncan’s wry quip about the weariness of the Bronx and the hood to Gianna Christine’s investigation to Adam’s Deli in search of the elusive “J. Lo special.”

The internet was abuzz with scepticism and amusement.


Christine’s revelation, captured on camera, went on a quest for the mythical “orange drink” with the precision of a detective, as reported by Brobible.

Alas, amidst the aisles of drinks ranging from Crush to Sunkist, the enigma remained unsolved.

However, her verdict upon tasting Jennifer Lopez’s order was surprisingly favourable.

It earned a stellar rating of 10 out of 10.


But the amusement didn’t stop there. Cara, another intrepid explorer, chronicled her journey through the bustling streets of New York City. Cara was in pursuit of the infamous bodega order.

With an orange drink in hand, she pondered whether Jennifer Lopez’s prolonged absence from the city had rendered her signature drink a relic of the past.

Yet, amidst the jest and jibes, a lone defender emerged from the digital crowd.

They cited the familiarity of Lopez’s order from bygone days.


However, dissenting voices quickly overshadowed the defence.

TikTokers like WellWithTiffany spoke on the intricacies of a true New Yorker’s bodega order.

“It’s not just a ham and cheese on a roll,” she asserted with the conviction of a native Brooklynite.

“It comes with a whole bunch of other stuff after it.”

From lettuce to oil and vinegar, the quintessential bodega sandwich was a far cry from Lopez’s purportedly simplistic rendition.


Meanwhile, TikToker Ryan provided a succinct breakdown of the absurdity inherent in Lopez’s order.

Each component was scrutinised, from the redundant specification of a “small” bag of chips to the baffling ambiguity of the “orange drink.”

The verdict was clear: Jennifer Lopez’s bodega order was, at best, a caricature of New York authenticity.


In the kaleidoscope of celebrity details, Jennifer Lopez’s bodega order stands as a testament to the allure of New York City’s culinary culture.

The next time you find yourself at a corner bodega, pondering your order, remember the cautionary tale of J. Lo’s infamous concoction.

In a city that never sleeps, even the simplest of choices can spark a frenzy of laughter and intrigue.
