The taste of HoneyBaked Ham is unbeatable, according to an article in Good Housekeeping. The prestigious publication awarded HoneyBaked Ham top honors in a national taste test of mail order hams, eclipsing all competitors across the country for overall flavor and quality. The results appear in the December issue of the magazine in a special feature entitled “Good Food,” which recognizes the best of class in other premier food categories.
Other hams simply could not measure up to the popular ham that’s a perennial, traditional family favorite. According to Good Housekeeping, participants in the taste test raved:
“The natural, smoky flavor of the HoneyBaked Half Ham … won over tasters, who couldn’t get enough of its tender meat and uniquely crunchy, sugary crust.”
It’s no surprise that the HoneyBaked Ham was recognized as the best-tasting mail order ham. The company was established on the principles of exceptional quality. More than 50 years ago, company founder Harry J. Hoenselaar invented his patented spiral-slicing machine, essentially creating a new category of holiday dining and gift giving, one that delights families as they gather around the table for holidays and special occasions.
The results of the Good Housekeeping Taste Test demonstrate that it’s the flavor that truly sets HoneyBaked Ham apart. Each ham is cured with a secret family recipe, then slow-smoked over hardwood chips for nearly 22 hours to seal in the natural juices and rich flavor. Then, it’s spiral-sliced using Hoenselaar’s oft-imitated process. Finally, it’s covered in a tantalizing and distinctive crunchy-sweet glaze that makes HoneyBaked Ham such an unforgettable experience, one that continues to garner accolades.
This storied tradition and celebrated taste resonate today. Through three generations in the family-owned company, each HoneyBaked Ham is still made the exact same way, one at a time, with exacting attention to details, just like Hoenselaar created all those years ago. That tradition of quality continues through mail order, online and in 400 retail stores throughout the country.
