What do you think when you hear the words "Hickory Farms?" I don't even think when I hear those words, my mouth just starts watering- instantly craving the juicy pears and scrumptious sausage. YUMmmy!
This year is rather special for Hickory Farms. They are celebrating 60 years of business and commitment to always provide the highest quality and best-tasting food gifts! Hickory Farms is more than just food it's also an American tradition.
As a kid I remember every Christmas our Grandma and Grandpa in California would send us some sort of Hickory Farms basket. I would wait for it to come in the mail just so I could grab some of the fabulous pear and have my mom cut up some sausage. As soon as the holidays came around I knew there soon would be an awesome basket full of goodies on the way. Hickory Farms was certainly something I would look forward to and became a holiday tradition. My dad would get the sausage, my mom- the cheese, my brother- the apples, and me- always the pears!!!
I was send the Orchard's Bounty Basket to try out...and boy did I try it out! I had a hard time sharing with my husband, but I definitely had a hearty amount of each sample! My family- we are fruit eaters. When our basket arrived with Fuji Apples, Mandarin Oranges, Luscious Red D'Anjou and Crown Comice Pears...we we're in heaven! These are like the king of fruits- the best of the best! My daughter and I especially loved the Pears- they were perfectly ripe and juicy!
The Orchard's Bounty Basket also includes the new Signature Beef Summer Sausage, Farmhouse Cheddar and roasted mix nuts in a keepsake Peterboro Basket. Hickory Farms also has featured the new Farmhouse Cheddar Cheese and Signature Beef Summer Sausage in all the the most popular gifts! They also received an American Masters of Taste Gold Medal for their award winning flavors!
Yes, they are award winning for sure! The basket came with two 5oz packets of sausage. They taste great, I wouldn't change a thing. You know how sometimes you get sausage and it's too dry or even too oily and watery. Hickory Farms Beef Summer Sausage is perfect, it's "semi-dry" so it's juicy, but you're dripping with oil. And it's not too dry, you're not chewing for days, it's perfectly scrumptious! I absolutely love it! Oh and the basket is great! It's pretty enough to leave on the counter as your permanent fruit basket! You can even decorate it up for the season by adding a nice red bow. I'll be keeping this basket out year round, I love it for a table fruit holder.
