by in Holidays, November 2nd, 2013

Behind the Scene's of Food Network's Thanksgiving Product GuidesThanksgiving is around the corner and menu planning is in full swing, but let’s not neglect the hunt for serve-able snacks, table decor, time-saving gadgets and hostess gifts. For the second year, Food Network has put together three Thanksgiving Product Guides to help readers prepare for the holiday. Whether you’re looking for an addition to your cheese platter or an easier way to mash potatoes, this year’s guides have it covered. We have searched the Web — high and low — for new products that will make your Thanksgiving entertaining complete.

The quest for the products began, believe it or not, back in May. We contacted around 100 companies to get the scoop about their upcoming products and to order samples. The mailroom was flooded with packages and desks were stacked high with options of edible treats to taste. One afternoon, the team of editors gathered to sample over 50 possibilities. Flavors, packaging and pricing were compared and opinions and ideas were shared. Word spread quickly through the digital department about the leftover treats and everyone maintained a steady sugar high all afternoon.
