Growing up, before starting to have visions of sugarplums and noshing on candy canes while having a chat with Santa, a highly-anticipated seasonal occurrence was the arrival of the Hickory Farms gift basket. Each year without fail, one was delivered to our house from one of the business contacts that worked with my Dad’s company.
I know it might not sound all that interesting for a kid, but it was always fun to open the box and sort through all the different items in each basket. Sausages, cheeses, nuts, sauces, crackers, even those little mint candies – there was something for everyone. Fortunately in my family everyone reached for a different selection from the box or basket, so everyone was able to enjoy their favorite.
Clearly my family isn’t the only family that’s been enjoying Hickory Farms over the years. For more than 60 years, they’ve been a classic holiday tradition for many. Hickory Farms not only embraces passing down traditions through generations of families, but also creating new traditions and sharing them with loved ones.
Hickory Farms Signature Party Planner
For the past week or so, we’ve been noshing on the goodies from the Signature Party Planner box. The contents include:
- Signature Beef Summer Sausage
- Spicy & Savory Summer Sausage
- Brown Sugar & Honey Turkey Summer Sausage
- Smoked Gouda Blend
- Farmhouse Cheddar
- Smoked Cheddar Blend
- Creamy Swiss Blend
- Cranberry & Sesame Nut Mix
- Classic Mixed Nuts
- Cranberry Mustard
- Sweet Hot Mustard
I had never tried Cranberry Mustard before but man, that stuff is good. I also really like the turkey summer sausage. Hubby declared both nut mixes delicious (not that I couldn’t guess by the fact they disappeared quickly). And my little cheese-lover Bubbles has sampled them all and gives them a big thumb’s up.
You can order from Hickory Farms online or stop by one of their 600 Holiday Market stores and kiosks across North America, as well as in select retailers. I’d also like to help you make some of your own holiday traditions by sharing a Hickory Farms Signature Party Planner box with you, so Hickory Farms is letting me give one away! Congrats Cheryl A!
