HORMEL GATHERINGS Party Trays Review + Giveaway

**I received free product in exchange for my honest review.**

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!  We visited D’s side of the family on Thanksgiving Day (more on that trip later) and had a post-Thanksgiving dinner with my side of the family last night.  Since we had just returned from our trip to Northern California, I asked my mom if I could bring an easy appetizer to our family dinner.  Well, it does not get much easier than a HORMEL GATHERINGS Party Tray!

The Party Trays come in a few different varieties:

Hard Salami & Pepperoni Party Tray (28 oz.): HORMEL Hard Salami, HORMEL Pepperoni, Sargento Cheddar Cheese, Sargento Colby Jack Cheese, Round Crackers

Honey Ham & Turkey Party Tray (28 oz.): HORMEL Honey Ham, HORMEL Smoked Turkey, Sargento Cheddar Cheese, Sargento Colby Jack Cheese, Round Crackers

There is also a Supreme Party Tray that includes olives, if you’re a fan!


I chose to bring the salami and pepperoni tray since my kids are salami fanatics.  However, I am sure they would enjoy the ham and turkey as well!


I love how the packaging is so thoughtfully designed.  It comes in a a black plastic tray with easily removable labels so it looks classy on the table.  The tray itself has compartments for the two packages of crackers, two packages of meat and two packages of cheese so you know where everything goes.  I was able to arrange the tray at home and it all stayed in place during our car ride to my parents’ house.

The individual components were all very tasty.  The crackers were nice and crisp, the cheese was “real” (not processed cheese product), and the pepperoni and salami both had a nice spicy kick to them.  Both the kids and adults had fun making their own little cracker/cheese/meat hors d’oeuvres.

These trays are perfect for an appetizer, but they also work for game day gatherings and noshing in front of the television as we are prone to do during the holidays.

I was able to find pick up my tray at our local Target.  They can also be found at Walmart and other retailers.  Click here to locate the store nearest you.

I have one coupon to give away so you can try a HORMEL GATHERINGS Party Tray for yourself!  My tray ended up being FREE after using this coupon, but the final price depends on the variety and store that you buy it at.

  1. I would get the honey ham and turkey variety. These remind me of the Lunchables I used to eat as a kid, except an adult variety.
