Easy Holiday Entertaining with Hormel Gatherings® Party Trays {Review + Giveaway}

I received free product in exchange for my honest review.

Step up your Holiday Hosting this year with Hormel Gatherings®Party Trays.

The Holidays are a wonderful time for gathering around the table reminiscing and sharing stories. Often your guests are hungry but the meal d’resitance is not quite ready. 

What to do? What to do?

Delicious party trays are one easy way to keep your guests happy until the main event. Little bite sized pieces don’t fill them up but prepare them for the meal to come.

Recently Hormel sent me some coupons and a Walmart Gift Card to pick up some Hormel Gatherings®Party Trays to share with my own friends and family at our holiday gatherings.

Hormel Gatherings® Party Trays are trays of fresh appetizers put together to feed your guests in any party situation. They can be found at Walmart where we picked up a tray of each…

  • Honey Ham & Turkey
  • Hard Salami and Pepperoni

Each tray, in addition to the listed meat selections, also contains, sliced cheddar and colby jack cheese, and round crackers.

I used these Hormel appetizer trays as a pre-dinner hors d’oeuvres tray for our Thanksgiving Day guests. Everyone was pretty anxious to get at them. I was afraid they would fill up on the trays and not have any room for dinner, but au contraire. My people showed restraint and waited until after dinner to wipe out the trays!

These party trays were perfect before dinner and after.

Each tray had sealed packages of the advertised meats, cheeses, and crackers. For the meat and cheese, there were more than what fits on the tray so we were able to replenish them halfway through.


Some thoughts about Hormel Gatherings® Party Trays

My husband did proclaim the snack trays a little salty but that didn’t deter him from snacking on them the next day.

I also would have like some variety in the crackers. Possibly some stone ground ones would have been a really nice touch.

  1. We don’t really have parties, but if we have people over for something like Thanksgiving, we have appetizers for the family to snack on while we wait for the main course.
