Hickory Farms - Review and Giveaway



Four years ago my mother gave every family a Hickory Farms gift set for the holidays. It was a gift well-liked by all. Since then, I look forward to going to the mall to the Hickory Farms kiosk during the holiday season to purchase food gifts for myself and others.

Hickory Farms recently sent me a Beef & Turkey Hearty Hickory Gift Box to review. My mouth watered as I opened the package and waited for my husband to come home so we could eat it together.

Contents in the set included:
- 10 oz. Beef Summer Sausage
- 10 oz. Turkey Summer Sausage
- 10 oz. Smoked Cheddar Blend
- 10 oz. Jalapeno & Cheddar Blend
- 2.25 oz. Sweet Hot Mustard
- 2.5 oz. Cranberry Mustard

I like how the contents are laid out in the package, carefully arranged to be visually pleasing. Scattered throughout are strawberry hard candies. I was impressed that the packaging is made with 100% recycable materials.

Me and Jason dug into the box as soon as he got home. With a box of Ritz crackers, we loaded up different flavor combinations. I liked everything, from the sausages to the mustards. Jason did too, but his favorite was the Jalapeno & Cheddar Blend. I'd like to say that we have some left, but we have went through the whole box in a matter of days. It has made for delicious evening snacks.

Hickory Farms' savory sausages, favorite cheeses, and other gourmet goods can be found online, in catalogs, in leading supermarkets, and in retail centers throughout the holidays season. With every purchase of the Party Planner Gift Box, Hickory Farms will donate $5 to Share our Strength. Also, for each person that "likes" Hickory Farms on Facebook, the company will donate $1 to Share Our Strength. To honor men and women serving in the armed forces, Hickory Farms offers free shipping on some of their most popular assortments to any military APO/FPO address around the globe.

Win It!

One person will win a Beef & Turkey Hearty Hickory Gift Box.
