If you are using the foundation store I think you want to take a look in:

There's the information that is shown in the shopping cart ... and the SKU 
of the item in the basket is then [item-code] afaik. 

I would think though that on average the placing of an item in the shopping 
cart is logged (in some session files(?)) and you could probably write 
something to analyse those? But not sure about that.
