(WHNT) — Let’s face it, no matter how hungry, everyone has that one food they will. not. touch. on Thanksgiving.
Christmas may take the cake with the ever-so-popular hatred of fruitcake, but there are people that inhabit this planet who hold a grudge against at least one dish on your Turkey Day menu.
Geotagged Twitter data tracked since November 1 included tweets, hashtags, and direct keyword phrases like, “I hate turkey,” “I hate green bean casserole,” and “I hate cranberry sauce,” along with negative phrases like, “cranberry sauce is gross,” “green bean casserole is disgusting,” etc.
Two foods reigned supreme on the map of food disdain: cranberry sauce and green bean casserole. Data from previous years show that hatred is pretty consistent with both dishes as a food that equates to disgust among the American population.
Here’s the “hate-by-state” breakdown:
- Cranberry Sauce – Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Texas, Vermont
- Green Bean Casserole – Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming
- Stuffing/Dressing – Arkansas, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nevada, North Dakota, Tennessee, Washington
- Yams/Sweet Potatoes – Maryland, South Dakota, Virginia
- Ham – Louisiana

According to the data, there weren’t any other foods that beat out those six in any state.
