Honey Baked Ham

Doing a little happy dance because I will be having reimbursed ham for Easter :-)

Does anyone know why some locations are shopped and others are not?

That's what I figured. So the franchisees are the ones being shopped?

I didn't see this round of shops so I'm not sure. There are a couple of MSCs that have shopped this client so I'm not sure which locations but I believe they're corporate stores that are shopped typically.
I don’t like spiral-sliced ham. Too dry. The ham shop was on my board, but I passed. I’ll grab a grocery shop and get a semi-boneless for .99/pound.
Have you ever cooked them in the slow cooker? I do a spiral-sliced ham from Aldi's - on sale for 95 cents a pound. Delicious and never dry. Below is the link to the recipe I use, although I cut down on the sugar for family dietary restrictions. Slow cooked in pineapple juice...yummy.

I have not used a slow cooker for ham. Don't really use my slow cookers often. I like messing with the food when I'm cooking. Stirring, tasting, adding a pinch of this or that. I'm no good at not taking the lid off a slow cooker.
I did get one o the Ham shops. They are located about 20 miles from me and I am supposed to order online, But have not been able to do so. If I can't order on line I have to stand in line and explain why I could not order online. The website will not complete the order.
I'm legitimately surprised these are going so fast. In my area it's a $4 fee + reimbursement for the ham. I guess people like ham a lot more than I do - I see it requires 7 photos and in that tiny stores seems like a real pain.
Delicious as it is, I can't believe the general population spend that much money on a chunk of meat and sugar. Blows my mind.

Most of the photos are of the ham itself and taken when you get back home.

I agree. The only time I get them is on shops.

Only shop email I saw was for $70. Is that the one? How big are these?

I usually buy mine for $13-15...not sure of the exact size. I like ham with breakfast, but not much else. smiling smiley Bagel/muffin + egg + ham + cheese = heaven
I was really surprised when I completed the shop yesterday. There was no line and only 4 people inside. This morning I was in The Fresh Market and they had lots of Sprial Hams with brown sugar for $2.99 a lb and Aldi had them for even less. I can't imagine why people would actually pay $7.95 a pound for them. Maybe that is why there was no wait.
There is another store very close to me and this afternoon,, no line. Guess people are finding other options.
I can beat that-my store only had three customers other than me!

I think I can beat that - I was the ONLY one in the location at the time of my entry until I left - and it was the Friday before Easter, around noon.
I had a walk-in shop.
