Holiday Traditions with Hickory Farms

One of my favorite holiday memories involves my grandfather. Every Christmas, we’d drive thirty minutes to a neighboring town to buy him a Hickory Farms gift pack for Christmas. His favorite was the Summer Sausage and strawberry hard candies. He kept a small knife in his pocket. He’d take it out, slice a piece off with that knife, and hand it to me with a salt cracker. He’d also sneak a candy to me when no one was looking. Such a simple memory, but priceless to me.

Hickory Farms

For more than 60 years, Hickory Farms has made their way into homes everywhere. I’m sure I’m not the only one reminiscing about the holiday traditions we’ve created along the way. Although my grandfather is no longer here, I still buy a Hickory Farms Summer Sausage each year. I slice off a piece and hand it to my daughter with a salt cracker. I’m keeping the tradition alive, keeping my loved ones close during the holidays.

I no longer have to drive 30 minutes to the nearest location. With over 700 Holiday Market stores and kiosks throughout North America, it’s easy to get a Hickory Farms gift to pass along. You can visit Hickory Farms to find the location nearest you.
