Christmas Dinner survey sparks disbelief after parsnips favoured over turkey

Christmas Day is still over six weeks away, but apparently, it’s not too soon to start thinking – and arguing – about Christmas dinner.

Consumer magazine Which published its tiered ranking of Christmas dinner ingredients and the controversial infographic has got social media in an uproar.

Perhaps the most divisive move was putting parsnips and Yorkshire puddings in the top "heavenly" tier, and relegating the highly popular Pigs in Blankets to the "Good" band.

Further outrage was felt by social media users who spotted gravy languishing down there in the "meh" tier.

Brian Brown was quick to respond, arguing: "Yorkshire puddings have no place on any Christmas dinner. Just no."

Meanwhile "bacon roll" aficionado Alex Gemmell boldly claimed: "Mate, pigs in blankets have their own tier that nothing else will ever attain."

More than one person furiously demanded to know where ether bread sauce was on Which’s so-called undisputed ranking and Laura was particularly incensed about the inclusion of broccoli, tweeting: "Carrots, sprouts, gravy and pigs in blankets should ALL be promoted!! What is broccoli doing there?!"

Emma Donnelly concurred, simply saying: "Broccoli for Christmas dinner? WHATTT?!"

The Which? infographic inspired plenty of people to offer their own ideas on what makes a great Christmas dinner.

Jim Paine, clearly a bit of a maverick, said: "Turkey? Just buy a large chicken or better a nice joint of gammon," before adding "Yorkies any time, including underneath ice-cream, trust me on this."

Another Xmas dinner nonconformist, going simply by the name Patrick, advocated Macaroni Cheese as an essential ingredient: "Macaroni cheese [is better than] Yorkshire pudding for any dinner including Christmas dinner. MC goes brilliantly with gravy and roast potatoes."

Lee Duncan suspected that Which? might have deliberately messed up the ranking just to get people talking, saying: "Trolling of the highest (lowest?) order. Gravy is the kingmaker of any roast, for a start."
