Are there any Thanksgiving foods you're really NOT looking forward to? A new study asked 2,000 people to name the foods they secretly hate, but still eat because of tradition or just to be polite.

68% said there's at least one classic Thanksgiving food they secretly dislike but eat anyway. And the most popular answer was . . . canned cranberry sauce.

Some people hate the taste, and some find the can shape revolting. Almost 30% said they secretly dislike it, but still eat it if it's served. Here are the top five answers . . .

1. Canned cranberry sauce. 29% hate it but eat it anyway.

2. Green bean casserole, 24%.

3. Sweet potatoes or sweet potato casserole, 22%.

4. Pumpkin pie, 21%.

5. Turkey, 19%. So almost 1 in 5 people secretly hate eating turkey on Thanksgiving.

The survey also found 23% of us have no interest in leftovers.

And one more random stat: For some reason, we buy more CHEEZ WHIZ around Thanksgiving than any other time of year. In the lead-up last year, there was a 158% jump in sales.
