‘Tis the season for all things turkey, and what makes the holiday oh-so-exciting is all the food you’re about to eat. Stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce – you name it!

The possibilities are endless when it comes to Thanksgiving sides but have you ever wondered which ones are the most popular?

A report by time2play uncovered what Canada’s favourite side dishes are for Thanksgiving, with some answers that you may find surprising.

Here’s how it turned out:

Favourite side dish

  • Mashed potatoes
    • Saskatchewan
  • Stuffing
    • Alberta
    • BC
    • Northwest Territories
    • Nova Scotia
    • Ontario
    • Yukon
  • Pumpkin Pie
    • Newfoundland and Labrador
    • Prince Edward Island
    • Quebec
  • Oatmeal Cookies
    • Nunavut
  • Cranberry Sauce
    • New Brunswick
    • Manitoba

Unsurprisingly stuffing brought home the title this year as Canada’s favourite Thanksgiving side dish, followed by pumpkin pie in second, and cranberry sauce in third, whilst Nunavut’s preference for oatmeal cookies was matched only by Saskatchewan’s love of mashed potatoes, putting those two side dishes in joint last place.

The results are drawn from the volume of Google searches made for each dish in every Canadian province and territory in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving.
