Turkey and Trimmings

A cornucopia of Thanksgiving favorites, all stuffed into one special Unwrapped! What's on our holiday table? The secrets to sides like Pepperidge Farm's stuffing and Ocean Spray cranberry sauce. If you can't decide between turkey or duck or chicken, "turducken" stuffs them all into one big bird! The Jolly Green Giant's veggies are favorites but did you know the big guy wasn't always green and he wasn't always a giant? Also, we visit Plimoth Plantation in Massachusetts to see what really was (and wasn't) on the first Thanksgiving table. And save room for dessert -- we've got Marie Callender's pies and Reddi-Wip. All this, plus muffins and mashers and much much more on a special hour-long "Turkey and Trimmings" edition of Unwrapped.
