Here on the Gulf Coast it is hard to believe that Christmas is only nine days away. The temperatures are in the high seventies here – which is warm even for us… but I am not complaining. Even though it may not feel like the holidays just yet, our family is in full swing with our holiday traditions – from making homemade Christmas ornaments to having Hot (warm?!) Chocolate and watching our favorite holiday movies before bed. Another one of my holiday traditions is giving the gift of Hickory Farms. For as long as I can remember my Dad and I have stood in line at the Hickory Farms Holiday Market in our local mall to stock up on tasty treats for everyone on our holiday shopping list.
For more than 60 years Hickory Farms has offered a wide variety of food gifts that are perfect for any budget and for everyone on your list this year. From sweet to savory – Hickory Farms has treats everyone will love. Hickory Farms Signature Summer Sausage has been awarded the Masters of Taste Gold Medal for Superior Taste for having the #1 Summer Sausage in America. I personally can not get enough of their cheeses, but new this year is the decadent White & Dark Chocolate Peppermint Bark: a custom blend of creamy white chocolate and dark chocolate made from West African Cocoa beans, hand swirled with pure mint and topped with crushed candy cane pieces… I mean really. We all need some of that.
Hickory Farms isn’t just about great food – they also give back to the community as well. They have been a proud supporter of No Kid Hungry® which works to end childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need every day. Since 2008, Hickory Farms has contributed more than $4 million to No Kid Hungry and this year you can help too! For every Signature Party Planner purchased this holiday season, Hickory Farms will donate $5 – so you can give the gift of food to your loved ones and to a child in need. It does not get much better than that.
Whether you are continuing the tradition like us or starting a new tradition of including Hickory Farms to your holiday festivities, you will have the gift of good food and giving to those in need. Hickory Farms’ food gifts are available at Holiday Market locations nationwide, on hickoryfarms.com and at leading retailers.
