One of the best things about Christmas celebrations is gathering with our loved ones to feast on a wide variety of delicious food!
That being said, there are some traditional Christmas dishes that everyone secretly dislikes but still ends up on the dinner table every year.
Keep reading to find out our list of best to worst Christmas foods!
#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!
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.
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.
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?
