Macy’s annual Thanksgiving Day Parade is a staple of the fall holiday. But as much as Thanksgiving itself is all about food and the parade is all about Thanksgiving (save for the *SPOILER ALERT* appearance of Santa Claus at the end), you might be surprised when you realize that, while there are many food-centric floats including a new Sour Patch Kids addition this year, very few of the parade's iconic balloons are food-related. We took a look back into image archives of parades past for any and all food-related balloons we could find. Here they are rated on a scale of one to ten based on both how adorable and edible they are.
