With Holiday Gatherings coming up, are you still searching for that perfect hostess gift for that big family holiday get together? Hickory Farms in a great suggestion!  For more than 60 years Hickory Farms gifts have been a classic holiday tradition that brings family and friends together. Growing up, I remember many a holiday with Hickory Farms served at our table and I love continuing that tradition with my family.

Hickory Farms is very proud to be a part of those nostalgic moments and continues to focus on and celebrate its long heritage of tradition and authentic holiday memories. Hickory Farms not only embraces passing down traditions through generations of families, but also creating new traditions and sharing them with loved ones.

New for this holiday is Hickory Farms Reserve Line – features a collection of artisanal cheeses that are  handcrafted artisan cheeses. If you enjoy artisan cheeses, you’ll love these unique flavors. These artisanal cheeses pair perfectly with Hickory Farms’ meat and cheese gift baskets, fruit baskets and wine gifts.

We recently received the Gift Box with the Cheddar Flight with Salami ($44) to review, from their Hickory Farms Reserve line.

The box comes with 4 Cheddars: a 3 year aged cheddar, garlic smoked cheddar, classic cheddar and apple smoked cheddar with paprika, plus a dry salami.



What My Family  & I Thought


My daughter enjoyed the classic cheddar the best, my oldest son enjoyed the apple smoked cheddar with paprika. I preferred the apple smoked cheddar. While I am newly lactose intolerant, I was easily able to enjoy all the cheddars (yeah!!). My youngest child enjoyed all the cheeses and loved the dry salami (which was a big hit too).

We highly recommend this gift box if your giftee is a cheddar fan. NOTE: Make sure you get these cheeses into the fridge. It comes packed with an ice pack.

Buy Hickory Farms’ products at Hickoryfarms.com or at their  700+ Holiday Market stores and kiosks across North America, as well as in select retailers.

Did you ever remember seeing Hickory Farms at your holiday get togethers?

And we’re giving away a gift box!
