Hickory Farms Box Set Review and Giveaway! CLOSED


Did any of you celebrate your holidays with Hickory Farms products when you were little? I definitely did! They've been around since 1951, so there's no question in my mind that there are thousands of families who have celebrated the holidays with Hickory Farms.

It was a sheer pleasure for Hickory Farms to offer to sponsor a review/giveaway on Mommy Rantings this year, after all of the years of memories that they have been part of in my life. :)

When the box came in the mail, I already knew what was going to be in it, however the children did not. So, opening it was like a Christmas gift and the Ooos and Ahhhs that came along with the grand opening of the box inside of the box was adorable! I received the Hickory Farm Sampler Beef, which included the crackers and cheese and beef and scrumptious some spicy mustard  and Italian herb and cheese spread to dip them in. Yum Yum! Of course, the kids couldn't wait to get their little hands on the goods! Here's the box I received:



Hickory Farms has so many different gift boxes and baskets this year, it's hard to decide what to buy! This one is my favorite:

And, of course, when there is a review, there is quite often a giveaway here on Mommy Rantings! Don't you just LOVE it?

  68. Great giveaway!

    I went to their site and think the cheese ball party pack gift box sounds great and it would make a great set for someone who likes to host parties, or entertain.

    My favorite memory with Hickory Farms is my mom always getting their cheese balls and sausage every holiday so we could enjoy them Christmas Eve night when my family makes snack foods and we spend time together as a family.
