The Seven Worst Thanksgiving Foods

We can't be thankful for these!

Posted on

1. Anything with Jell-O in it

Savory or sweet, Jell-O is hospital food, not holiday food. Say it after me: JELL-NO. Jell-O for dessert either says 'I'm hopelessly 1950s or too cheap to buy pie.'

2. Sweet potatoes with marshmallows

Marshmallows are for s'mores, not for vegetables.

3. Green Bean Casserole

Burying green beans under canned soup and a salty snack and calling it a vegetable is like calling cinnamon raisin bread 'fruit' because it contains dried grapes.

4. Instant mashed potatoes

Don't have enough time to make mashed potatoes from scratch? Well, there is an easy alternative. IT IS CALLED A BAKED POTATO. Just step away from the flakes...

5. Turkey breast

The truest sign of a food philistine is someone who cannot appreciate dark meat. People who serve only white meat might as well be serving Swanson turkey TV dinner. Oh yeah, and extra Thanksgiving demerits for burying the turkey underneath a boatload of gravy. If you can't taste the meat, it isn't Thanksgiving!

6. Anything Christmas-related or flavored (peppermint, eggnog, and so forth)

Everything has a time and a place. What are you, four years old and can't wait for Santa? I hate to break it to you, but the pilgrims and the Indians did not eat candy canes on the first Thanksgiving...

7. Cake (instead of pie)

Yes, it is cake and it is probably yummy. BUT WHERE IS MY PUMPKIN AND APPLE PIE?
