New Butterball Snack Packs Are Like A Thanksgiving Dinner To-go

Posted at 8:30 AM, Sep 04, 2020

The typical Thanksgiving meal leaves us feeling stuffed and fortified for hours, and it’s a shame that this kind of hearty meal only comes around once a year. If you’re longing for those traditional Thanksgiving flavors and some full-stomach satisfaction while on-the-go, Butterball has your back.

Perhaps best known for its turkeys that wind up on Thanksgiving tables, the brand is now launching three new to-go snack packs, one of which is full of Thanksgiving flavors.

While you’ll have to pack your own side of mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie, the new Thanksgiving Premium Snack includes holiday-seasoned turkey breast, stuffing bits and dried cranberries.


The other two Butterball snack pack flavors are Citrus Teriyaki, which includes turkey, sesame sticks and dried pineapple, and Cajun Style, which comes with turkey, cornbread crisps and dried apple pieces.

All three kits have 10 grams of protein and can be found at retailers nationwide including Jewel-Osco, Meijer, Food Lion, Shoprite and Tom Thumb.


If you’re wanting a sweet treat alongside your Thanksgiving snack pack, how about some Thanksgiving-flavored candy?

You can now buy Thanksgiving dinner-flavored candy corn that tastes like turkey, green beans, stuffing, ginger-glazed carrots, cranberry sauce and sweet potato pie. A 12-ounce bag retails for about $2.99 at Walgreens stores nationwide.


And when the time comes to prep your actual Thanksgiving meal, Butterball’s turkey talk line will be available for practical and moral support once again.

Trained turkey experts have been answering turkey-related questions via this special phone number every November and December for more than 30 years. The 50+ experts answer more than 100,000 questions every holiday season, and although this year’s holiday may be different, the turkey experts will still be available to help with anything you may need.

While it began as just a phone line in 1981, turkey advice is now being dispatched on, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, live chats, texting, emails and even through Amazon’s Alexa.


Of course, you can still make a good old-fashioned phone call, too, by dialing 1-800-BUTTERBALL (1-800-288-8372) — or you can text 844-877-3456.
