Hickory Farms -- a Holiday Tradition! (Review)

If you're like me -- you grew up with Hickory Farms.

For me, I couldn't wait for the holiday season to approach. Pop and Nan would make their way to the Mall and the Hickory Farms store. Oh, this was my favourite shopping trip! This is a long-standing tradition in my family and something we passed on to our daughter.

Mike and I L*O*V*E watching Christmas movies and snacking on summer sausage, a variety of cheeses, flavoured crackers, then finishing off with hot chocolate. What could be better?

Mike and I recently received the Home for the Holidays Gift Box. It's a fantastic array of the very best Hickory Farms has to offer.

Mike and I made short work of it, too. We took about half over to my Moms and watched football -- enjoying our summer sausage and cheese. The rest we kept for ourselves and had a couple of nice evenings just to ourselves. :D

The Home for the Holidays Gift Box Includes:

-2 Our Signature Beef Summer Sausage 10 oz.
-Italian Recipe Beef Summer Sausage 10 oz.
-Farmhouse Cheddar 8 oz.
-Cheddar Havarti Blend 7 oz.
-Parmesan Herb Blend 4 oz.
-Olive Oil and Rosemary Crackers 1.5oz.
-Sesame, Caraway and Sea Salt Crackers 1.5 oz.
-Sweet Hot Mustard 2.5 oz.
-Honey and Pineapple Mustard 2.5 oz.

My favourite way to snack? The Olive Oil and Rosemary Crackers, Italian Beef, Cheddar Havarti cheese, and Honey and Pineapple mustard (oh... that mustard is killer!).

Mike is strictly a meat and cheese man with no condiments. He loved the summer sausage with the Havarti and cheedar cheeses!

For the past 60 years, Hickory Farms has been providing holiday shoppers with options that not only present beautifully, but also taste delicious.
