Is White Turkey Meat Or Dark Turkey Meat Better? We Get To The Bottom Of This Thanksgiving Debate — VIDEO
It's a Thanksgiving debate that threatens to divide families and break up friendships each and every year as we sit down at the table, and prepare to give thanks for the feast before us: is white turkey meat or dark meat better? If you say you are indifferent, you are obviously lying. Everyone has a preference, and even though you might say that you will gladly eat whatever piece of meat ends up in front of you, if there's only one drumstick left and you happen to be on team dark meat, you're gonna fight to the death to make sure it ends up on your plate.
Of course, if you're looking at this debate from a nutritionist's point of view, both dark and white meats have plenty of health benefits going for them. Sure, white meat might have lower levels of saturated fat, but dark meat comes packed with tons of minerals and vitamins, including Vitamin A, K, and B12. And both taste delicious, especially when smothered with gravy, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and any other staple your turkey-loving soul craves on Thanksgiving.
At the end of the day, all turkey is good turkey — but try telling that to a true dark meat or white meat die-hard. They're staunch in their ways, and usually have some pretty solid points to back up their preferences. So who really comes out victorious in this age-old argument? Can there be one true winner? See how the debate gets settled in our video below.
