ATLANTA - June 13, 2013// PRNewswire // - If "you don't need to get me anything" is dad's typical response to what he wants for Father's Day, you are not alone. Millions of Americans are trying to figure out how to celebrate this special day for the men in their lives. While Father's Day spending is expected to increase this year and hit the $13.3 billion mark,* a recent survey shows what dad really wants is the gift of quality time with family.** HoneyBaked offers the perfect Father's Day solution so you can spend time with dad and make him feel appreciated – by planning a delicious, hassle free meal.
"Every father loves good food, but when he enjoys it with family, the meaning of a great meal is taken to a whole new level," said Maggie DeCan.*** "By simply visiting a HoneyBaked location, you can select from a variety of fully cooked proteins and heat and serve side dishes that eliminate the hassle of grocery shopping and meal preparation, giving you more time with dad."
HoneyBaked makes Father's Day easy and delicious by offering only the leanest, most flavorful moist and tender bone-in half hams you'll find anywhere – without any added water or juices. Often imitated but never replicated, Honey Baked Hams and Roasted Turkeys are fully cooked, ready to serve and hand-finished in store with HoneyBaked's sweet, crunchy glaze.
HoneyBaked also offers a variety of other main dishes certain to please meat lovers. Moist and tender, slow smoked BBQ Baby Back Ribs and BBQ Pork Roast are fully cooked, so you simply heat them up and serve, or enjoy the BBQ Baby Back Ribs on the grill for that fresh, charred flavor dad is sure to enjoy. If dad is more of a "burger guy," HoneyBaked's new Sweet Glazed Bacon makes the perfect topping to any sandwich. Father's Day meal planners can also select from a large variety of sides and delicious desserts to complement any main dish.
"Whether you'll always be known as 'daddy's little girl' or the son who follows in dad's footsteps, Father's Day is the one day every year to show your father you love him by spending more time with him," said DeCan. "And there is no better way to show your appreciation than bonding over a special meal."
