We all know the jokes that are made every year when it comes to fruitcake. The same one has been going around the globe, passed from person to person, for the past 40 years, nobody likes fruitcake, fruitcake is a bad gift, etc. But let's talk about food beyond that cliche. What are some of the usual Christmas foods that you don't like or are overrated? What food does your family serve when you go back home and you dread it, even though you don't want to tell the person who cooked it that you've never liked it?
I come from a large Italian family, and my brother used to bring boxes and boxes of desserts and candies for after dinner eating. And mixed in with all the usual great stuff like pies and brownies were Italian cookies and cakes. Ugh. I used to like them, but they're like malted milk balls to me. I can eat one, then I don't want them anymore. And that round, dry Italian cake (the name escapes me now). I used to dread seeing that on the table. Every year he brought it, and every year it was ignored.
I don't like turnips either. I think there's one person in the family who eats them, and the sad little dish of turnip just sits there on the table, getting cold.
