Hickory Farms Review

I have to tell you that I and my husband, Mike, really enjoyed reviewing Hickory Farms! Mike was so over the moon when he found out we would be reviewing Hickory Farms because he thinks their summer sausages are the greatest! We got the Party Planner gift box and it was jam packed with all kinds of things for us to try. Doesn't it look awesome?
Where to start? Well let's see, the Party Planner has 3 sausages, 5 cheeses, 2 kinds of mustards and a box of Caraway and Sea Salt Crackers. May not sound like alot but it was! Mike attacked the Smoked Gouda cheese and Signature Beef Summer Sausage first and he was in heaven for several days. He even got Charlie to eat a few tiny bites of the Smoked Gouda cheese, which was a huge mistake, because then it was hard to get him to eat his food!

Now, he thinks he has to have a few bites of cheese before he will eat his dog food, darn it! My favorite was the Farmhouse Cheddar Cheese and the Caraway & Sea Salt Crackers. I have always loved a good cheddar cheese and Hickory Farm's has one of the best.

I wanted to share a great cause that Hickory Farms is a part of and that is No Kid Hungry and here is how Hickory Farms is contributing:
Hickory Farms is proud to support Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry® Campaign. Share Our Strength® is the leading non-profit organization working to end childhood hunger in America by 2015.

This holiday, for every signature Party Planner gift sold, Hickory Farms will donate $5 to the No Kid Hungry Campaign. Each $5 contribution can help connect children in America to 50 meals. (maximum donation $500,000, through 1/31/11). You can also add a donation of your own as you complete checkout. To learn more, visit nokidhungry.

There is so much to choose from at Hickory Farms. You can shop by price range if you know how much you want to spend and can't go over that amount then selecting this option is the right choice for you. And get this, anything over $35 ships free! You can also shop by category which could be sausage & cheese, baskets & towers, Sweets & Nuts, Fruits & Nuts, HoneyGold Ham, Military Gifts, Holiday Store Exclusives, Specials and Business Gifts.

Whew, that was a handful to write much less say! I really love that they have a Military Gift section. Most of my readers know that I grew up as a Military brat so I am very partial to the Army in particular but I support all branches of our great Armed Forces. It really warms my heart to know that there are companies out there who haven't forgotten our wonderful and brave men & women in uniform. Hickory Farms offers free shipping to any military address which is the APO/FPO collections.
The basket above is called the Orchard's Bounty. Doesn't it look delicious? I did not get to review that one but wanted to give you some of the other options that you can get besides just cheese & sausage baskets. This would be great for those who love fruit or who are a special diet. I know when you are dieting it sucks that there aren't any gifts that you can give as far as food that are low in calories and fat but with Hickory Farms, you do have options! I hope that you will visit Hickory Farms and see all the great things that they have to offer and hopefully share some of their charities by supporting them. On top of that, you will get great foods to snack on all thru the holidays!
