Holiday traditions with Hickory Farms

Hickory Farms holidays sweetWhen my husband and I were first married, we received a box full of Hickory Farms treats from the grandparents for our first holiday in our new house. This little box was such a welcome treat with our meager post-wedding funds, and I remember making each night we snacked on the gift box into a party of sorts.

Unwrapping each little food package felt like a mini present, and it turned into a nightly ritual almost like an advent calendar. To this day, it’s one of my favorite gifts I’ve ever received because of how fun and unexpected it was.

Something about seeing the booth in place at the mall now signals to me that the holidays are coming, and immediately I’m in the holiday spirit.

Hickory Farms Holiday MarketMaybe that’s because Hickory Farms is America’s most famous holiday food gift brand. Their delicacies have been enjoyed for over 60 years by holiday shoppers searching for the perfect foods to serve when company arrives as well as gifts for family and friends. Whether you come for the free samples or you are searching for something for that impossible to buy for person on your list, you will definitely leave happy.

So, when I opened a package to find this assortment of goodies this year, it felt like that first Christmas as husband and wife. We may not be newlyweds anymore, but now we’re celebrating the completion of our little family with our first Christmas as a family of 5. Hickory Farms Chocolate TrioSure, we could wait until the kids were in bed and have a little treat just the two of us each night like the old days, but how could I possibly say no to these sweet little faces who were 100% certain that this package was for them, too?

  1. I love the sausage and cheese gift boxes. All of them. I buy Hickory Farms Beef Summer Sausage every Christmas, but I really want a big gift box of it!

  2. Growing up, I remember my parents getting people a gift basket of the Hickory Farms summer sausage. It felt like it was such a special gift, so even in adulthood I still send one to people on special occasions. I had no idea they had so much more, though! Those are some nice looking sweets! I love brownies, & my husband loves cookies.

  3. you can’t go wrong with the chocolate decadence trio. I am a chocolate addict. so this would obviously be awesome!

  4. I am crazy about Hickory Farms Summer Sausage – trips to the mall as a teenager always included a stop at Hickory Farms for samples
