What dessert is the most disappointing at the end of the Thanksgiving feast? Mashed surveyed 607 people and this was their answer to that question.
The dessert that attracted the ire of most survey respondents was sweet potato pie — it's the worst Thanksgiving dessert for 27.51% of voters. This could be because it is primarily a southern dish. As the culinary historian Adrian Miller noted in The Washington Post, the dessert barely gets any love in any other context (unlike the ubiquitous pumpkin pie). So it's possible that respondents chose the dish they've had the least experience with.
Second 'worst pie' behind sweet potato pie is coconut cream pie. A full 25.54% do not need coconut cream for the their post Thanks meal. Rounding out the top 3 worst pies according to this survey is pumpkin cheesecake with 12.69% of those surveyed expressing they are not here for it.
Jesse and Tati show will take ALL the pies! They are thankful for dessert!
