Let’s keep it real. Thanksgiving is that holiday we all look forward to so that we can throw down on some good food. Turns out though, the love for the traditional classic dishes that go hand-in-hand with turkey day isn’t always there. According to a survey conducted by Harris Poll for Instacart, 2,000 people shared their thoughts on the dishes they like the least.
- 46% of Americans thought that cranberry sauce was disgusting despite going out and buying some
- Green bean casserole made up of cream of mushroom soup and fried onions isn’t beloved anymore
- Sweet potatoes made it on the list too
- 21% of Americans disliked pumpkin pie
- Last but not least, the Thanksgiving center piece is becoming more disliked as the years go on. For many millennials, turkey isn’t served for dinner instead they serve other dishes.
I took it upon myself to find out what Thanksgiving dishes my peers found to be disgusting. The results are as follows:
- “Thanksgiving food is okay. I don’t like everyone’s food, but I can’t eat stuffing, turkey, or sweet potatoes.” –Amani Pitmann
- “Ham over turkey without a doubt.” –Christopher Skanes
- “I dislike turkey. It’s just so dry.” –Tatiana Sykes
- “I don’t like dressing.” –Cassidy Walls
Well, there you have it folks. Seems like turkey, the Thanksgiving centerpiece, might not be at the table much longer if our generation has anything to do with it. What’s your least favorite Thanksgiving dish? Hit me up and let me know.
