Honeybaked Ham is worth the price

Childhood memory of ham

As a child, I anxiously awaited the arrival of our Christmas ham. Our neighborhood grocer had the secret to a honey glaze. The ham was garnished with pineapple and cherries. I have not tasted a ham that compared to this specialty from our neighborhood grocery store. Over the years I tried to recreate the taste to no avail.

Introduction to Honeybaked Ham

I don’t remember when I first tasted Honeybaked Ham. It was not like my neighborhood favorite but it is the best I have had since childhood. I am now on my way to pick up the Honeybaked Ham I ordered several days ago. My husband has offered to go with me so he can bring the ham home while I continue to my hairdresser. He proposed to me over Honeybaked Ham. He thought I cooked it so obviously he had never had Honeybaked Ham before!

Expense is relative

While Honeybaked Hams appear pricey, there are always coupons to lessen the cost factor. In addition, the ham is pre-sliced so there is less waste and all slices are relatively even. There are sales on hams in grocery stores. I find all of them to taste rubbery. Actually, when Honeybaked does high volume sales, there is the possibility of getting a rubbery ham when an advanced order is not placed. Honeybaked will glad give a refund or exchange as long as the ham is returned in a timely manner.
