Hickory Farms Holiday Gift Baskets Makes The Holidays A Little More Delicious. #review #giveaway @HickoryFarms

Spice up your holiday with Hickory Farms Holiday Gift Baskets! {Review}

If you are anything like me, a child of the 80’s, you remember the thrill of seeing Hickory Farms on the side of a box delivered around the holidays. Loads of cheeses, savory meats and the occasional chocolate in each box (my favorites were the little petits fours), just waiting for my 8 year old self to rip into it. I remember pouring over the catalogs and creating a wish list of what I hoped we’d get!  I know, other kids wanted Barbies, I wanted cheese. Not much has changed! :) We have a giant kiosk at our local mall that is frequented by my family when ever we shop. My kids love all the samples and we usual end up with a cheese ball or two.

My husband’s favorite spurge is Hickory Farms sweet hot mustard. It’s one of his favorite mustards. Hickory Farms Gift Baskets have long been a tradition in my family!

Much to my delight my family was given the chance to review a Hickory Farms product and we received the Tastes of the Trade Tool Bag.

The Tastes of the Trade Tool Bag has:

-2 -Our Signature Beef Summer Sausage 10 oz.
-Farmhouse Cheddar 10 oz.
-Jalapeño Cheddar Blend 10 oz.
-Holiday Spiced Almonds 4 oz.
-Golden Toasted Crackers 4.4 oz.
-Olive Oil & Rosemary Crackers 4.4 oz.

Net Weight 3.3 lbs.

Retails at $60.00


I really liked the bag and even though it’s supposed to be a tool bag we decided it would be an awesome snack cooler for holiday traveling! The kids came home from school so we cracked open the cheese and sausage for an awesome afternoon snack. I don’t know who was more excited…me or the kids!

My son’s favorite part was the almonds, my daughters both LOVED the cheddar cheese, summer sausage and golden toasted crackers.

Beef Summer Sausage, Farmhouse Cheddar and Holiday Spiced Almonds.

Our yummy afternoon snack!

I was given a Tastes of the Trade Tool Bag to giveaway to one My Crafty Life reader!
