being MVP: Hickory Farms: Cheddar Flight with Salami + #Giveaway #HickoryTradition

Hickory Farms: Cheddar Flight with Salami + #Giveaway #HickoryTradition


Hickory Farms during the holidays is a tradition for as long as I can remember and I have brought that tradition to my inlaws when I married my husband. It's a wonderful gift that can be shared and enjoyed before dinner while mingling and opening presents. I also love that they come ready to gift and there are so many choices in various price ranges so you can find the perfect pairing for your recipient.


Since we are hosting Christmas this year at our home, the Cheddar Flight with Salami ($44.99) we received for review will be a nice addition to the appetizers.

-5 Oz Apple Smoked Cheddar With Paprika 
-5 Oz Smoked Garlic Cheddar 
-5 Oz Classic Cheddar 
-5 Oz 3 Year Aged Cheddar 
-7 Oz Dry Aged Salami 


Handcrafted in the heart of Wisconsin, these natural cheddar cheeses are the jewels in our new Reserve lineup. An award-winner many times over, you’ll love how the Apple Smoked Cheddar has a mild flavor with a spicy finish from the hand-rubbed paprika rind. Our Garlic Smoked Cheddar is a delicate blend of flavors that give way to a smoky finish. The Classic Cheddar is handmade by our Master Cheese Maker in small batches then cured for three months for a creamy texture. And if you love sharp floral notes with a tangy finish, look no further than beneath the hand-dipped wax of our 3 Year Aged Cheddar. For mouth-watering enjoyment, pair these Wisconsin cheddar cheeses with our dry-cured salami handcrafted from selected cuts of pork and expertly flavored with red wine. Once you try them all together, you’ll agree nothing draws out the flavors of artisanal cheeses like the salty, savory goodness of a fine salami.
