Hickory Farms gifts for Christmas

People knock the Hickory Farm gift sets.  While it is true that it is usually given as a last resort, I have always enjoyed receiving them, as long as there is alot of meat in the box.  On a side note, I am not digging this Santa Claus; looks like he was on a Slim Fast diet that year.

  1. Funny bit from Family Guy is in the links at the end, too.

    But yeah, I’ve always enjoyed Hickory Farms. My parents would get it when I was younger, and I’ve tried to keep that tradition going now that I’m an adult. Gotta love the beef stick, though the smokey hot mustard and cranberry mustard go well with it, too.

    This reminds me, I need to find a local location soon…

  2. I’m upset if I don’t receive one of these gift sets for Christmas. I don’t usually get the hot mustard in my gift set though…sounds like I’m missing out. :)

    @Retro: If Santa was eating nothing but meat and cheese, that is the same as being on the Atkins diet, thus his dramatic weight loss.

    @VicSage: I agree. The only thing worse than not getting a cheese and sausage gift box is 785 smelly hound dogs eating your Christmas turkey!

    Nice! Im pretty sure that the actor who is playing Santa Clause is in fact Otis from the Any Griffen show!
