Idaho’s Least Favorite Thanksgiving Food Is Also The Most Important
Let's be honest here. If I ask you to think of a Thanksgiving dinner, you're going to imagine a turkey with a bunch of side dishes. Even if you don't like turkey, that's the image most of us have. Even a Google search of 'Thanksgiving Dinner' shows a turkey in every single picture. So, how in the world can Idahoans say that they don't like turkey? That's according to the number of Twitter posts from Idaho that state 'I hate turkey'. The She Knows website shows that cranberry sauce is the most hated dish at Thanksgiving dinner in 17 states. Idaho's most searched for savory dish, the green bean casserole, is the second most hated dish in 12 states. But the Thanksgiving staple, turkey, is somehow a hated Thanksgiving dish in Idaho, Oregon, and Maine.
I like turkey and cranberry sauce so I can't relate to the results of this study. In my book, green bean casserole would be the most hated dish followed by sweet potatoes and stuffing. I do get that people prefer to have ham or some other meat for the main dish. Though in our recent survey nearly 90 percent of you said that you prefer turkey at your Thanksgiving meal.
