Hickory Farms continue family traditionsGrowing up, did you have holiday traditions with Hickory Farms? I remember meats, and cheeses, on the table at family gatherings. We celebrated Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day with lots of food. A classic all over the United States, Hickory Farms is 60 years old. I bet there isn’t anyone who hasn’t heard of Hickory Farms, and has a “memory” with Hickory Farms woven into it.

Hickory Farms helps continue family traditions or start new ones

Holidays are about traditions, at least they are in my family. My kids already know Thanksgiving we go to Nana’s to celebrate with family. When Christmas Eve comes, they know we head to my sister’s house to spend the evening with cousins, uncles, aunts, grandparents, and even their Nana-Nana (a.k.a. great grandmother.) We eat, we laugh, we give gifts, and we receive gifts. Our entire family centers every celebration around food, so of course, the start of any celebration means Hickory Farms!

Hickory Farms meats, and cheeses, deliciously smoked to perfection, make our holidays brighter. My daughter LOVES their Turkey Summer Sausage. After she’s done, I love that she emits this smoked turkey scented breath. I’m a huge fan of the Beef Summer Sausage, it’s got the little “kick” to it that I love.

Every, and all, cheese are a huge hit with me, and The Boy. I can hear the smoked Gouda calling to me……but, I have to stay strong for the holidays. I can’t break it out just yet…..I’ve already opened up the turkey summer and beef summer sausages, plus the Creamy Swiss blend cheese. I have to save the cheddar, Gouda and the final beef summer sausage for Thanksgiving. RATS!

    I really like the Home for the Holidays gift box!

    • November Sunflower November 25, 2013 at 10:37 am

      A fantastic gift box. I can’t figure out a favorite, since I’m totally loving all of them….

  2. Danielle Giglio November 25, 2013 at 10:28 am

    Vineyards and Orchards Gift Box – I could live on wine, cheese and fruit. Maybe this should be my diet for the New Year – probably healthier then what I eat now.

  3. Nancy Cook November 25, 2013 at 10:47 am

    Deluxe Smokehouse Collection Gift Box.

  4. Krista November 25, 2013 at 11:00 am

    My favorite of the FAVORITES is the Hickory Holiday Celebration basket, however I have never been known to say “no” to Spiral Sliced HoneyGold Ham – just putting that out there.

  5. Paula Lee November 25, 2013 at 12:23 pm

    Definitely have to pick the Grand Gift Snack Tower!

    Summer Sausage and Cheese – I love their summer sausage

  23. David November 26, 2013 at 9:29 pm

    I am going to have to say that the Italian Ice Cream Truffles are my favorite. I was all ready to crown the Sweet and Salty Nut Sampler or the All Day Celebration Gift Box, but then I saw the Italian Ice Cream Truffles. Can you possibly go wrong with ice cream truffles? I would have to think not.

    • November Sunflower November 26, 2013 at 9:37 pm

      I can’t argue with that philosophy. Completely makes sense to me. You can never go wrong with Italian Ice Cream truffles.

  24. Pauline Milner November 27, 2013 at 6:32 am

    I really like the Hickory Holiday Celebration. All of their products are yummy! Thanks for offering this super giveaway opportunity. Keep up the terrific blogging!
