Hickory Farms - A Great Christmas Gift!

I have always loved Hickory Farms. I can remember walking through the temporary Hickory Farms stores at Christmas time and just drooling over all the amazing looking packages of food. That feeling has never gone away because honestly, I love the kind of food that you get in a Hickory Farms package. So when Mom Central was looking for bloggers to join a Hickory Farms review campaign, I knew I had to sign up.

And the desire to be part of the campaign was made even stronger when I saw the Hickory Farms connection with Share Our Strength. For a limited time throughout the holiday season, Hickory Farms will donate $5 to Share Our Strength for every purchase of the Party Planner Gift Box. I am so passionate about supporting Share Our Strength and their mission to end childhood hunger by 2015. So any business that supports their efforts is a winner in my book!

Hickory Farms sent me a gift basket to sample and you wouldn't believe the level of excitement in our house when it arrived. We couldn't wait to dig in to the yummy summer sausage, cheese spread, cheeses and crackers.

So last Sunday afternoon, we pulled out the box and enjoyed a fantastic late afternoon snack. We cleaned the plate quickly because everything was so good. I think my favorite was some of the spicy mustard spread on a cracker with a slice of cheese and summer sausage. So delicious!

Personally, I think food is a fantastic gift. It's definitely one of my favorites to give and receive. And I don't hesitate at all to recommend Hickory Farms as a great food gift option. They offer so many different options that there's sure to be something for everyone.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Hickory Farms and received a Hickory Farms gift basket to facilitate my review.

Growing up my dad pastored and each Christmas we would receive at least a couple of gift boxes from Hickory Farms from friends. I LOVED them! The cheeses were my faves! To this day, I still drop by their kiosk at the mall to p/u *beef stick* for my dad's stocking:)

I know what you mean. I always loved seeing the Hickory Farms temporary kiosk in our mall. I"d always have to at least look, if not buy too.

It's great that they are also supporting an important cause. You feel so much better about buying things from companies who support good causes.

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
