Every year, Americans look forward to Thanksgiving as a time to get together with family and consume copious calories. But while the turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy get all the attention, other delicious items are sometimes overlooked and cast aside.
With that in mind, we asked some DePaul students what they think is the most underrated Thanksgiving food.
“Cranberry sauce. Because it’s one of those things that comes in a can, that no one’s really that hyped about, eaten with everything because obviously it’s not as savory. But I mean I think it’s that nice little sweet combination that tops it all off. How can you not have the cranberry sauce?”

“The whole meal could be all stuffing and I would be happy. It’s just so damn tasty. It should just be stuffing and mashed potatoes and gravy. The only reason you have the bird is to be able to make the gravy”.
-Micky Leyret, 22 (senior)
“Probably dessert. Just anything, because everyone is full by then, so I don’t think people usually save enough room for dessert. That’s important. My mom’s best friend owns a bakery so she always brings tons of cakes and cookies and just everything you could ever imagine.”
