Some say its when the leaves start falling, some say its when holiday decorations go up in stores, but the truth is, the holiday season doesn't truly start until the Hickory Farms store opens up in your local shopping mall. Starting this week, Hickory Farms opened 650 Holiday Market locations in shopping malls for the 2015 holiday season.
"We are proud of the Traditions and the connections we have built with so many families," said Mark S. Rodriguez, Chief Executive Officer of Hickory Farms, in a press release. "As America's most well-known holiday food gift brand, we are excited to be introducing new and great tasting gifts we know families will enjoy each and every year."
Along with the opening of its holiday locations, this season Hickory Farms is introducing Simply Hickory Farms, a new line of sausage, cheeses, and condiments made from all-natural, simple ingredients containing no preservatives, artificial flavors or colors. Simply Hickory Farms Beef Sausage features 100% all-natural North American Beef raised with no hormones or antibiotics and Simply Hickory Farms Medium Cheddar and Gouda cheeses are naturally aged, handcrafted and gluten free.
The company is also introducing new White & Dark Chocolate Peppermint Bark made with chocolates, mint, and topped with crushed candy cane pieces, as well as Hickory Farms’ collection of Holiday Cookie Gifts made from scratch.
This holiday season, Hickory Farms will donate $5 to No Kid Hungry for every Hickory Farms Signature Party Planner Gift Box sold. Since 2008, Hickory Farms has contributed over $4 million to the organization, according to a press release.
Customers can find Hickory Farms gifts and other specialty food items at Hickory Farms Holiday Markets nationwide, online at hickoryfarms.com, and at retailers this holiday season.
