#1 Roast beef

This delicious dish is iconic for a reason. Nothing gets you mentally ready to eat way past your stomach capacity than a giant plate of juicy roast beef!

#2 Hand-carved ham

Ham is already delicious, but what makes it even better and more festive is getting a full ham and hand-carving it at the dinner table!

#3 Fudge

Rich and decadent, Christmas fudge is totally worth the calories in our opinion.

#4 Christmas cookies

This needs no explanation. It's cookies in festive shapes, what's not to love?

#5 Gingerbread men

The sweet and spicy flavour of gingerbread men cookies gives a warm and comforting twist to regular cookies. Plus, it's fun to make your own cookies and decorate them!

#6 Mashed potatoes

When drenched in copious amounts of butter and cream, mashed potatoes are absolutely divine!

#7 Mince pies

The dried fruit and spices are balanced out by a crispy crust

#8 Cranberry sauce

Once you've found the specific brand or your own recipe of cranberry sauce that you like, it's actually quite a lovely festive condiment!


#9 Assorted chocolates

This one's a little subjective. Some people like surprises and some don't.

If you're the latter and happen to be a picky eater and a chocolate-lover at the same time, being faced with a box of assorted, unidentifiable chocolates can cause pretty high-stakes tension.

#10 Turkey

While it looks very grand on the dining table, have you noticed that most people don't eat turkey at any other time of the year? 🧐

Chicken, beef or basically any other meat would be more tender, flavourful and moist than turkey!

#11 Brussels sprouts

It's important to have your greens especially during a dinner when there's so much heavy food, but brussels sprouts are the least appealing type of vegetable.

#12 Fruit cake

Although the presentation is colourful and appetising, fruit cakes are usually far too sweet for most palates.

#13 Candy canes

This is another one that's great to look at but so underwhelming in taste.

#14 Mulled wine

Although expectations are set high by its cosy-sounding name and inviting aroma, the taste completely fails to live up to it.

The mix of spice flavours oppose rather than complement each other to create a bizarre-tasting beverage that disappoints.

#15 Eggnog

Made of eggs, heavy cream, milk, sugar, and nutmeg, eggnog is simply too rich and creamy to take more than just a few sips.

Do you agree with the ranking of these traditional Christmas foods?
