Battle of the Dishes

A Thanksgiving Dinner Fowl: Cornish Pasty Company vs. All Wrapped Up

Remember that scene in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory where disgusting gum-chewing champion Violet Beauregarde gets her choppers on a piece of gum that tastes like a roast beef dinner, complete with tomato soup and blueberry pie? According to the Institute of Food Research, we're not far off from a similar lazy man's dinner in a capsule. Just think, all of the flavors of your family's Thanksgiving feast with none of the pesky blaoting, tryptophan coma and inevitable holiday weight gain. Wheeeee!

Until then, we'll have to settle for the next best thing -- wraps, filled pastries and other crazy concoctions that pack an entire Thanksgiving Day meal into every bite. Warning: If you need an inch between food items on your plate or retch at the idea of peas and mashed potatoes co-mingling, read at your own risk!!
