There are some foods that are pretty universal for American Thanksgiving: turkey (of course), stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, pumpkin pie, etc. You can go to almost any house on Thanksgiving and you’ll end up having a pretty typical meal that day.

But…a lot of families also apparently have some downright strange recipes for Thanksgiving as well. Foods that some of us might recoil at if it was placed in front of us.

This tweet generated quite the conversation on Twitter.

You’ve been warned…

Okay, let’s get started!

1. Seafoam salad, anyone?

2. Forget about the cranberry sauce.

3. What have you done?!?!

4. An interesting choice…

5. Sounds delicious!


7. Worse than it sounds.

8. Can’t forget about that one.

9. I wasn’t warned.

10. I’d probably try it…

11. Holy sh*t.

12. You’re still with him?

13. A sad Thanksgiving.

14. Hmmmm, not sure about this.

Those recipes certainly seem…interesting.

Does your family have any odd/strange/weird/gross/repulsive foods that they cook up every year? If so, share them with us in the comments!

Hope you had a happy Thanksgiving!
