HoneyBaked Ham Co. Unwraps Handcrafted Ham and Zesty New Cajun Turkey This Holiday Season

Quality and Value Continue to Be the Staple

NORCROSS, GA--(Marketwire - December 21, 2010) - It's holiday time again, and that means visits from family, friends and colleagues. Food is the focus of many holiday gatherings, and this year, HoneyBaked Ham Co. says you can choose from both traditional and not-so-traditional main course ideas to serve as the centerpiece of your meal.

HoneyBaked Ham's signature product is their spiral sliced, handcrafted ham, famous for the consistent quality, tenderness and flavor that keep customers coming back year after year. Each HoneyBaked Ham is cured in their legendary marinade then smoked for more than 20 hours over their unique blend of hardwood chips. At each individual location, every ham is hand-finished with their famous sweet, crackling glaze. All HoneyBaked Ham stores invite customers to personally select the handcrafted ham of their choice to fit their budget and their guest list.

This year, HoneyBaked Ham is turning up the heat for the holidays with the introduction of their new Cajun turkey breasts and whole Cajun turkeys, all featuring the brand's sweet, crackling glaze you can't make at home. The Cajun turkey breast and turkeys are seasoned with a special blend of Bayou spices and are available for a limited time only at HoneyBaked Ham stores and online.

With choices to accommodate any size group or budget, HoneyBaked Ham's menu allows hosts and hostesses to create a complete, ready-to-serve meal. HoneyBaked's traditional sides include sweet potato soufflé, green bean casserole, cornbread stuffing, Yukon gold mashed potatoes, and more to round out their offerings of whole turkeys and hams. A variety of tasty desserts -- including Red Velvet Cake -- complete the meal.
