ATLANTA – ‘Tis the season for pools, picnics and barbecue. The Honey Baked Ham Co. is embracing summer with new items available at its 450 US retail stores. The company announced it added Summer Meal Packs, with a variety of combinations available, as well as heat-and serve pulled pork sandwiches and HoneyBaked Beans.

“We’re always looking for ways we can introduce new HoneyBaked originals to our menu,” said Jo Ann Herold, chief marketing officer. “Over the last year we’ve been testing new products, like our signature baked beans recipe, to give families more meal options. We continue to be committed to creating convenient, delicious, quality dishes that can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere.”

The Summer Meal pack varieties, which are intended to serve four to six people, include a choice of ham or turkey with rolls and two side dishes. Honey Baked also is offering its BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich, served with barbecue sauce, mayonnaise and pickles. The Build Your Own BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich 6 Pack includes 3 lbs of pulled pork with pickle chips, buns and sides of potato salad or Honey Baked Ham’s Broccoli Bacon Bliss.

Also new to the menu are the HoneyBaked Beans, a heat-and-serve side dish, which combines pieces of the signature ham with two types of beans, barbecue style.

The company is also test marketing two other menu additions. Its Take ‘N Bake Sliders for four are small sandwiches featuring either Honey Baked Ham or Turkey topped with Swiss cheese and sugar garlic butter are served with pickle chips. The sliders are available in select store locations in Michigan and Illinois. Additionally, the HoneyBaked Lettuce Wraps are billed as a Keto-friendly option made with Honey Baked Ham, bacon and Swiss cheese or turkey along with bacon and vegetables that are wrapped in green leaf lettuce. The wraps are available for lunch or catering customers at select stores in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Texas.
