I really can't think of any holiday foods I don't like, because if I didn't I wouldn't make them.
I would never put marshmallows on sweet potatoes, but I can understand that in some families its a tradition from childhood, and I am in favor of keeping up the traditions.

OK, my curiosity is piqued. What, exactly, goes into the making of Peeps? Isn't it pretty much just sugar and air?

I don't like Peeps either. More for you, then, right?

On the subject of Peeps and Easter, you also may have the Cadbury cream eggs (caramel yummy) and the raisin sauce for the ham.

I do not know if I have ever had a sweet potato pie. I actually like sweet potatoes but that idea of adding more sugar and then marshmallows just seems so gross to me. I like other types of pies and desserts but gotta be gluten free.

No Peeps, no lamb, but I make up for it with chocolate bunnies.

For decades I thought I didn't like yams because of that canned yam with brown sugar and marshmallow that seems to be a Thanksgiving tradition. I was so surprised the first time I tasted a baked yam with just a bit of butter. Yams are good!

I don't eat giblets, so if you put giblets into the gravy or stuffing, I can't eat it.

I won`t eat anything with marshmallow in it. Not yams, not sweet potato.
No vegetables swimming in cream of crap soup.

I'm with you. I also dislike most holiday sweets. Ham, goose, duck, any sort of weird white person meat with sweet sauce or gravy are also on my avoid list.

Anything involving marshmallow...I don't put 'em on my sweet potatoes, and Peeps
know better than to darken my doorstep. The sole instance in which I will
tolerate marshmallow is in rice crispy treats.
Completely agree.

Actually, there is one more instance that I enjoy marshmallows and that is toasted. But they must be eaten alone and not combined with chocolate etc. No s'mores for me. (shudders).

And I've never ever understood marshmallows on sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes are plenty sweet without adding sweet goop to them.
