Thanksgiving by the Numbers
Happy Thanksgiving! Tonight, come to dinner armed with these fun facts--your secret weapon for breaking up family tiffs, curbing chatty Cathys and rousing snoring uncles.
the increase at holiday time in sales of French's French Fried Onions--the definitive green bean casserole topper.
the number of gallons of jellied cranberry sauce during the holidays--that's almost enough to fill 8 olympic-size swimming pools!
the number of tons of surplus frozen turkeys, which is what inspired frozen foods company C.A. Swanson & Sons to create the nation's first TV dinner in 1954.
