Delicious Holiday Appetizers From Sam’s Club {Giveaway}

(Disclosure: I was provided a gift card from Sam’s Club but all thoughts are my own.)

On Thanksgiving we were going to my mom’s for a big turkey dinner in the evening so we decided to stick with snacks for the rest of the day. We did this because who wants to fill up on a meal when you know you are going to get one of the best meals of the year later in the day? Sinisa, the boys and I headed to Sam’s Club to get everything we needed to make a delicious spread of appetizers to bring to his sister’s house for our pre-Thanksgiving dinner visit.

Sam’s Club is a one-stop destination for all my holiday needs because it has a large variety of items and I can save money by buying them all in bulk. They also offer a 200% guarantee on fresh foods so if members aren’t satisfied with the items they’ve purchased Sam’s club will refund double the member’s purchase price or refund the purchase price and replace the product. That is a pretty awesome guarantee!

The first place we went was to the bakery. Sam’s Club has over 60 new bakery items just for the holidays including several bite-sized delights like cake balls. We picked up a loaf of freshly baked zucchini bread which reminded me of the bread my mom used to make. We also grabbed a couple packages of Hawaiian bread as well.

I normally pair Hawaiian bread with homemade spinach dip but while shopping I came across Artisan Fresh Spinach Artichoke dip. I am so glad I got this because this dip is the best dip I’ve ever had. There was Parmesan cheese mixed in with the spinach and artichoke and the flavors went so well together.

A cheese plate is a must at any party. We kept our’s simple with Ritz crackers, colby cheese, and salami. The cheese was already cubed which was a great time saver. Sam’s Club has over 50 international cheeses so if you like to make gourmet cheese platters they have lots to choose from.

Along with the cubed cheese we decided to get some fresh mozzarella. It was in a marinade already so we stuck the cheese on a toothpick along with a cherry tomato and had a quick snack that tasted so fresh.

We also chose to get shrimp cocktail which is something we don’t have very often. Yum!

I’m looking forward to Christmas day because we are doing the same things we did on Thanksgiving! We will have a special breakfast in the morning but other than that we are snacking on finger foods from Sam’s Club all day. If you aren’t a member of Sam’s Club yet I invite you to check out all they have to offer!
