National Pie and National Chocolate Covered Anything Day

Sweet Potato Pie
During December there is a lot to celebrate, but let’s not forget to celebrate National Pie Day on December 1. It took generations to perfect the Classic Pecan Pie, and our recipe will make any Southern baker proud - using only fresh ingredients and fancy Georgia Pecan halves. Our Sweet Potato Pie is made exclusively for Smithfield in their friend Nell's Rockahock Farm kitchen. The tangy flavor, layered with cream cheese, and topped with pecans take the traditional sweet potato pie one step further.

Later in the month enjoy celebrating National Chocolate Covered Anything Day on December 16. We have plenty to choose from: chocolate covered peanuts, chocolate covered peanut brittle, chocolate covered specialty nuts include chocolate covered cashews and chocolate covered almonds, and chocolate peanut clusters. Some come in gift assortments.
