Tomorrow kicks off my absolute favorite time of year. It will officially be the holiday season and the next five solid weeks will be filled with the hustle and bustle of holiday festivities and traditions. From putting up the Christmas Tree to watching Rudolph to building a fire and sipping hot chocolate while looking at old pictures – every holiday season brings a host of activities that my family and I have done since as far back as I can remember. One constant in our holiday festivities has always been Hickory Farms Gift Baskets – which have been a go-to gift for most of the men in my family for years! There has not been a single year that I have not stood in line at the Hickory Farms Holiday Market in the mall to load up on all of the delicious goodies they have to offer.
Hickory Farms is America’s most famous holiday food gift brand, helping holiday shoppers find the perfect gifts for their loved ones for over 60 years. Who doesn’t have a memory of Hickory Farms being a staple and holiday parties, family gatherings, and gift exchanges? I always remember Hickory Farms being my Dad’s favorite – to give and receive. And I distinctly remember playing Dirty Santa at a company Christmas party one year where the Hickory Farms Baskets were the most “stolen” items of the night!
My favorite items from Hickory Farms has always been the cheeses! Few things taste as good as Hickory Farms Smoked Gouda or their Sharp Cheese Ball with crackers. But this year I was excited to try a few of their sweeter options, and indulged in the Chocolate Decadence Trio… let’s just say I made sure to eat every one of them…. you know, in the name of research. Brownies are my weakness and these were absolutely scrumptious. I was not surprised – I have yet to find anything from Hickory Farms that wasn’t delicious.
Whether you are attending a holiday party, playing Dirty Santa, looking for a gift for the “person who has everything” or simply want to start your own tradition of bringing delicious Hickory Farms treats to your holiday table, you will find hundreds of options to choose from. Hickory Farms’ food gifts are available at Holiday Market locations nationwide, on hickoryfarms.com and at leading retailers.
