When it comes to certain classic holiday dishes, not everyone is on the same page. In fact, we've noticed that certain holiday foods (turkey, eggnog, etc.) seem to be particularly polarizing -- you either love 'em or you hate 'em. With Thanksgiving rapidly approaching, we want to know what you think about some of the most supposedly beloved holiday foods.

Why some people love it: This spicy, fruity and often boozy holiday staple is one of the most controversial on our list. People love it because when made right, this nostalgia-evoking spiced cake studded with candied fruits and nuts is like the perfect bite of Christmas in your mouth. Plus, upside: The boozier varieties may actually get you a bit tipsy after eating it.

Why some people loathe it: Although fruitcake is popular with aunts and grannies as one of the most mail-able X-mas gifts (because of its slow spoilage rate), it also means it's often hard as a rock when you first bite into it. Many detractors complain about the cake's dry texture and "icky" gummylike fruits laced throughout.
