Kitchen Think: Thanksgiving Food Tidbits


More than any other holiday, Thanksgiving inspires all kinds of culinary creativity… some of it not particularly appetizing.

Here are a few of the more interesting Thanksgiving-related food items that I’ve come across this season.

Pumpkin Beers have been around for a while, but the Jones Soda Company has a really interesting non-alcoholic offering… and it’s vegan. 

If you need your Thanksgiving fix first thing in the morning, Kellogg’s Pop Tarts has you covered.

If you don’t like pumpkin pie, don’t worry. Baskin Robbins says, “Let them eat cake!” And, no, it’s not made of turkey-flavored ice cream.

Not cooking this year? Well, here are a few video snippets to remind you of what you’re missing… or not!


Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Eat up!
