On Thursday, we get to feast on turkey, mashed potatoes, apple pie, and other beloved Thanksgiving dishes. But “pass the gravy” hasn’t always been the most common phrase heard at Thanksgiving dinner. In a hilarious history lesson, kids tasted popular foods from Thanksgivings past, and their priceless reactions will undoubtedly bring a smile to your face.

These kids are troopers, am I right? Although their hilariously candid commentary and facial expressions say it all, they hung in and tasted a whole lot of strange foods despite their obvious trepidation.

As we count our blessings on Thursday, I’ll be sure to give thanks for the fact that I don’t have to pretend to enjoy yorkshire pudding and cream of peanut butter soup in order to avoid hurting the host’s feelings. Sometimes the little things in life are the best things, ya know?
