Review: (Hillshire Farms)

Hillshire Farms is a company that I tend to think most of us have heard about. I had certainly heard of them and had even had several of their products before doing this review. However, I really hadn't done much in the way of sampling their line of lunch meats. I usually opt for the containers of store brand lunch meat when I'm a the supermarket.

On our most recent trip to stock up on groceries I was armed with some coupons to sample their product and I chose both the Ultra Thin Turkey and the Ultra Thin Ham before heading for the check out line. My little dude calls all sandwiches 'hamwiches so it only seemed fitting that we try out the ham first. He's sort of an a la carte man, so we broke some up into pieces for him and I had a simple ham sandwich. I have to tell you I was really impressed with how fresh tasting this was. It was sweet and tasted like it had just come from the deli counter. When I made my purchase I opted for the  "family-sized container" and I am thrilled that the plastic container holding the meat is the perfect size to house a sandwich after you have consumed all the product. I love that you can use the container again and again. It's a perfect way to take lunch on the go be it to the zoo, to visit family or just for a picnic at our local park.

I was impressed with the flavor, the packaging and the pricing for this product. So, next time you're in the store pick up a package and give it a try. It'd make the perfect grilled turkey and cheese this time of year.

  1. I'm a huge fan of the Hillshire farms thin cut oven roasted turkey, I like to eat it just plain, or rolled around cheese. I'm a really choosy eater (yet in my mid twenties, I sound like I eat like a child...) and I really really love the stuff, actually better than deli turkey, we've stopped buying it altogether! Yesterday my friend and I came home from camping and were starving and the first thing I did was make two big fat oven roasted turkey and cheese sandwiches on toasted soudough bread with melted cheese and mayo, like three inches of turkey each. and it was just perfect. K.C.

  2. I'm a ham sandwich kind of girl, add a little provolone, some mayo, and lettuce and I'm set. If I want to get really crazy I toast the bread first....ooooooh.
