Food for the Holidays 2015

Holiday Food Guide

It's the perfect centerpiece to any party. The summer sausage is America's favorite and really shines when served with our rich Smoked Cheddar Cheese. Add a little sweetness and spice to balance the savory with our Sweet Hot and Honey & Pineapple Mustards. By the way, hoppy pale ales or a deep red wine like Cabernet Sauvignon are superb with the flavors of this gift. 
  • Hickory Farms continues to support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign, working to end childhood hunger in America. For each Party Planner gift box sold during holiday season, Hickory Farms will donate $5 to the campaign, and customers can make donations of their own at the time of purchase.
  • Hickory Farms has a proud tradition of supporting the military and offers complimentary shipping on select gifts to military addresses around the world throughout the year.

Cosmos Creations has always been a great treat for us, all year long. But we are really excited about the Caramel Apple flavor. It's perfect for the fall.
This flavor is a no brainer. Our classic premium puffed corn served summer-style with a delicious combination of crisp, tart apple crumbles and silky sweet caramel. It’s a crunchy snack twist on a classic treat, loved by the entire family! Indulge your sweet tooth with moments of unparalleled bliss. Real apple chunks. Premium puffed corn. Sweet decadent caramel. Need we say more?

The original Creation is our trademark recipe that offers oven-baked non-GMO corn with just the right amount of simple caramel, made to perfection. Pure, natural* ingredients combined to make a snack that’s deliciously addictive.

Founder Pete Lescoe created Food Should Taste Good, Inc in 2006 with the goal of making a unique new snack with great taste, real ingredients, and sophisticated flavor - the qualities he is most passionate about in food.
With a name that speaks for itself, Food Should Taste Good™chips are made from high quality ingredients. All chip varieties are gluten free, cholesterol free, have zero grams trans fats. They are also certified Kosher.  Plus, many varieties are certified vegan.
Food Should Taste Good™ chips are available nationally at conventional grocers and natural food markets. 

  • The traditional Italian brand, Bauli, is best known for their Pandoro and Panettone holiday cakes, which are Christmas and New Year’s Eve staples available during the holiday season. All Bauli products are ready-to-eat and oven baked, Kosher-certified and made with no preservatives, no artificial colors or flavors, and no GMO ingredients. Bauli’s holiday offerings include:
    • Panettone – Better than your grandma’s fruitcake – the time-honored recipe has a lighter, less-dense texture and is packed with candied citron, lemon zest and raisins (Now available in NEW Minis!)
    • Pandoro – Traditional Christmas bread of Italy  – a fluffier version of pound cake that can be cut and dusted with powdered sugar to resemble a Christmas tree (Now available in NEW Minis!)
