Tasting Cranberry Sauce in Preschool

Are you buying any cranberry sauce this week for your Thanksgiving dinner?  I have to admit that this is something that I usually would leave off my list if I were in charge of the Thanksgiving shopping.  My only associations with cranberry sauce are the ones of the molded, gelatinous cylindrical shape that you wiggle out of the can.

However, I decided that the Little People should taste cranberry sauce this year to see if they would like it.  Admittedly, part of the reason was that I had already made this printable that is part of the Thanksgiving Activity Pack in my Teachers Stores:

I got the printable ready, so I was halfway there.  I then ran across this jar of sauce during our last trip to Trader Joe's, so I went ahead and purchased it for the tasting.

We decided that we wouldn't just serve the sauce without anything else, so we served it on Ritz crackers.  Which, now that I think about it, might have influenced the voting a little bit.

Here is the chart pre-voting:

Here is the chart after voting:

I certainly was surprised at the results.  But then again, I tasted the sauce myself and thought it was pretty good.  So I brought it home and we're saving it for Thursday.

Would they have voted differently if it were the traditional wibble-wobble can-shaped mass?  I don't know.  I just know that in this case, the Little People have spoken, and the result is:

Thumbs up for cranberry sauce.
