Everyone has their own favorites when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner dishes, but it turns out, most people agree on which traditional Turkey Day food they like the least. According to a recently published map by The Daring Kitchen, “The Most Hated Thanksgiving Food Across the U.S.,” is … cranberry sauce.
The map is based on geotagged Twitter data that used phrases and hashtags about hating specific dishes. More than 50,000 “hate tweets” posted since November 1st were tracked and broken down by state, so now we know all about which are the least popular Thanksgiving dishes in each state.
The tweets also reveal:
- A total of 17 states hate cranberry sauce the most, including New York, California, Florida, and Texas. The second most-hated dish? Green bean casserole.
- Stuffing lands in third place, followed by sweet potatoes, and pumpkin pie.
- While a majority of Americans love turkey (75%), in three states (Maine, Oregon, and Idaho) turkey - the iconic star of Thanksgiving dinner - comes in last.
When I saw CRANBERRY SAUCE as the most hated...I couldn't believe. I mean..look at that this AWESOME picture of canned cranberry sauce!!
FYI: North Dakota's most-hated dish on Thanksgiving is sweet potatoes.
