My friend and I were discussing this. Many people NEVER eat turkey except for Thanksgiving. Why is that? We came up with some theories, but I'd like to know what others think is the reason. Theory #1: Turkey is too big for a typical meal, and smaller turkeys aren't available. One turkey drumstick can weigh 4-5 lbs! Theory #2: Unfamiliarity. And not available at the store. Theory #3: Turkey is only "associated" with the holidays. Theory #4: Ground turkey is seen as "less yummy" than ground beef (partly due to it's pale color). Theory #5: The only familiar daily eating of turkey, is sliced turkey in sandwiches. Seems like the turkey industry could do a better job of promoting: ground turkey, turkey parts (drumsticks, wings, breasts, etc). Edited for grammar.
