Hormel Gatherings Party Trays Review – Great for parties, get-togethers, and holidays! #Spon

*I received product(s) mentioned in this post for free in exchange for my review. All opinions are 100% my own.*

I recently received an opportunity to try out Hormel Gatherings Party Trays through Social Insiders. I was sent a kit that included a Walmart gift card to use for my purchase of one of these trays. I also received a few free product coupons as well.

Hormel Gatherings trays come in a variety of sizes. There are smaller snack trays (14 oz) and there are four different ones you can choose from. There’s pepperoni and cheese, turkey and cheese, ham and cheese, and pepperoni and salami. We get the smaller snack trays often because my kids love them. There are larger sizes as well such as the tray that I am reviewing. These party trays (28 oz) and are available in hard salami, pepperoni and cheese and the other one is honey ham, turkey and cheese. There is also a supreme party tray (39.7 oz) that comes with a variety of cheeses, meats, and olives. All the tray sizes come with crackers as well.

Everything inside the tray is wrapped individually. The bottom of the tray has sections so that once everything is opened, everything can sit in their own space in the tray. The cover can be used again to cover tray and store in the refrigerator. The lid/cover stays on pretty well too. The one thing I would suggest is that after the crackers are opened, take them out and put them in a dry container instead of leaving them on the tray if you put it in the refrigerator. I noticed that the crackers tend to get soft in the refrigerator after they are opened. It’s not an issue with the product so don’t get me wrong. It’s just the nature of storing crackers in general. If the crackers are unopened, they are just fine in the refrigerator. 

I love that everything is individually wrapped because all of the tray items tasted fresh. The cheese and meats had really great texture and all tasted really good! The crackers were good too. They were crunchy without being too soft or too hard and salted perfectly. The pre-cut cheese and meats were the perfect size too. The layout of the tray made it so easy for everyone to grab what they wanted to stack their crackers with.

They are great for football parties or any other kind of party. Great for any kind of gathering and are a perfect snack to go along with any meal. We had one with for a recent football party and had other tailgate like snacks to go with our tray. Everyone seemed to love it because it didn’t last long! We had another one to go along with our family Thanksgiving dinner. It gave everyone – especially the kids something to snack on while waiting for dinner to completely finish. We have never had a Thanksgiving dinner that was completely finished on time.

We love them. They are ready-made and they taste great.

They make a quick and easy appetizer and fun to eat too!
