Thanksgiving Facts

| Filed under: DietsFood


Thanksgiving is the one time a year it’s alright to break out of your diet…at least a little. What’s most amazing about Thanksgiving is that almost everyone in America is eating pretty much the exact same thing as you! That doesn’t happen any other day of the year!

Here are some fun facts about Thanksgiving dinner:

–3,000: Calories are consumed by the average person at Thanksgiving dinner.
–12: Million turkeys are sold by Butterball each year.
–675: Million pounds of turkey are consumed each year.
–50: Million pumpkin pies are eaten at Thanksgiving.
–350: Approximate number of pounds the largest pumpkin pie ever made weighed. It used 80 pounds of cooked pumpkin, 36 pounds of sugar, 12 dozen eggs, measured 5 feet in diameter and took six hours to bake.
–40: How many million green bean casseroles are made.
–100: Age of some of the oldest cranberry beds—and they’re still producing!
–72: Millions of can of Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce purchased each year.
–565: Number of times a line of all the cranberries produced in the U.S. would stretch from Boston to Los Angeles if you lined them all up, end to end.
