T-Minus Two Days Until Thanksgiving: Here’s What You Might Be Forgetting

With 53% of Americans planning to spend more time with friends and family compared to last year, we know people may feel a little rusty when it comes to hosting larger groups.

With only two days until Thanksgiving, here are the nine most common grocery items* you may be forgetting: 

Side Dish SOS – Turkey may be the OG Thanksgiving meal, but this year, it’s all about the sides. From mashed potatoes, to sweet potatoes, to green bean casserole, mac and cheese galore and more, here are the items that might’ve fallen off your grocery list this year: 

  • Cranberry Sauce
  • Stuffing
  • Turkey Gravy Seasoning Mix
  • Sweet Rolls

Near Dessert Disasters – Whether you’re team sweet or savory all-the-way, no Thanksgiving meal is complete without dessert. So, don’t dessert-disappoint your guests by forgetting these most commonly forgotten items: 

  • Chopped Pecans
  • Whipped Cream
  • Refrigerated Dough

Ingredient Essentials – For those making the meal from scratch, check your pantry not once, but twice, for these most commonly forgotten ingredients:

  • Pure Vanilla Extract
  • LouAna Peanut Oil

And, believe it or not, according to Shipt internal data these are the top 5 cities who turned to them on Thanksgiving Eve, ordering more turkeys than any other city last year – so listen up, Detroit, Grand Rapids, St. Louis, Houston, and Indianapolis, don’t forget the turkey this year!
