Thanksgiving is nearly upon us! This has many Americans drooling in anticipation of the feasts that’ll be laid out before family and friends. Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, yams, mac and cheese, roasted vegetables, that canned cranberry sauce that somehow has become a staple, all gather together as we talk about gratefulness. But not all Thanksgiving dishes are created equal. Some are downright heinous. And over the weekend, Twitter became a place to share stories and recipes for the grossest Thanksgiving side dishes.

It all began when tech reporter Maya Kosoff shared the recipe and results of her family’s “Seafoam Salad,” which is made from lime jello, canned pears, cream cheese, and cool whip.

Twitter users responded with their own brushes with unique and questionable Thanksgiving trimmings.
