Default Would Thanksgiving turkey dinners from a supermarket be worth buying this year?

Every November I've seen supermarkets advertise Thanksgiving dinners that come in a box packaged with the turkey stuffing and dinner rolls and dessert included and I would like to know if anyone has tried them for Thanksgiving and would they be worth buying? Mom has only ordered them three times and wants to try something different for Thanksgiving this year and i'm curious to know if supermarket turkey dinners are really worth buying? I also make a lot of calls to supermarkets to find out turkey deals and that really helps Mom with our Thanksgiving plans

Having bought Turkey for both Thanksgiving and Christmas All I can say is I've never had a bad turkey (The only exception was when my Father would baste the bird too often). I solved that problem by marinating the the turkey for three days in a vat filled with the same mixture formerly used. The results EXCEEDED my expectations and everyone RAVED about it. If you INSIST on basting your bird use ONLY the drippings from the turkey, and do it as little as possible.

I would recommend Cracker Barrel's Thanksgiving Family Meal To Go, if you
are having 2-4 people over. Cracker Barrel says 6, but with 2-4 you'll have
leftovers, if that's important to you. You will get sliced turkey, a sampling of Sugar Cured Ham (I always ask for more ham), Cornbread Dressing, Turkey Gravy, Cranberry Relish, your choice of 3 country sides (Quart size - Mashed
Potato, Yams, Corn, Cooked Turnip Greens, Green Beans etc. many sides to pick from and you can order extra Qts if you like, and you get Biscuits, Cornbread or Dinner rolls. Cost: $67.99 or more if you order extra quarts
or more ham, or a pie. The food is good, and it's still piping hot, when you
get it home. Set the table and light the candles, start the music and it's all good!

I always thought that turkey dinners from a supermarket is way too much as far as food goes. What if it's only 2 or 3 people?

Mom and I have only bought turkey dinners from a supermarket four times but once we bought a turkey from Marie Callender's and it wasn't quite what we expected it to be and it was a Zacky Farms turkey. My aunt likes to buy her turkey dinners from Boston Market every year and she loves them and the turkey dinners she gets from Boston Market comes with excellent side dishes that my cousin likes to eat as well. I called my Boston Market when I had one once to see if I could get the same meal as my aunt but Boston Market was too expensive

Have you considered dining out? I've done that a few times and the food was great. I just missed the leftovers.
