HORMEL GATHERINGS® Party Tray Review and Giveaway

HORMEL GATHERINGS® Party Tray Review and Giveaway

I received free product and a store gift card in exchange for my honest review. All opinions and content are my own.

When it comes to celebrating the holidays and time with family and friends, I like to keep the prep time as easy and quick as possible, especially while raising and taking care of two young children under the age of four. To allow me that extra time and peace of mind, I look to ready-made party trays that have exactly what I love to enjoy. HORMEL Gatherings® has the perfect Party Tray that is versatile for all types of events from football games and tailgate parties, to holiday gatherings and family get togethers. I recently had the opportunity to review their Supreme Party Tray with hard Salami and Pepperoni.

The HORMEL GATHERINGS® Party Tray was very easy to find at my local Stop n’ Shop. I recommend you use their Store Locator to find where it is sold close to you. They are sold at most major grocery retailers including Walmart, Target and Shoprite. The 28 oz. tray includes HORMEL® Hard Salami, HORMEL® Genoa Salami, Sargento® Pepper Jack Cheese, Sargento® Colby Jack Cheese, Round Crispy Crackers, and Assorted Pitted Olives.

Hormel Gatherings

Your party tray should be kept refrigerated until ready to enjoy. Each product inside is individually packed for freshness. Just open and use the party tray to serve or transfer to a serving dish. My family, who was visiting for Thanksgiving, could hardly resist digging in to the meats, olives, crackers, and cheeses. Everything was very tasty and fresh. The meat was a bit on the salty side, so keep plenty of water and a variety of refreshments nearby. Keep those glasses full!

The crackers were buttery and flaky, and the olives were my most favorite. I love marinated black olives and am usually not a fan of green olives. I tried these green olives and was impressed with the taste. It did not have that usual harsh bite to them and were quite mellow tasting, which I prefer. I little bit of a sweet and savory combination with a soft aftertaste.

For storing if you have some leftover after your event, I recommend separating the crackers and storing in a plastic bag on your counter as they may become soggy stored in the fridge. We had a lot of fun enjoying our HORMEL GATHERINGS® Party Tray. There were five of us who were able to finish two-thirds of the tray. We wanted to save room for our light supper a couple of hours afterward. I recommend the Party Tray for 6-10 guests, depending upon how hungry everyone is.
