A gorgeous fall drive, gourmet goodies, and plenty of holiday delights are part of the experience at Southern Supreme this fall. It’s a childlike thrill to take a road trip to Bear Creek for the annual Holiday Open House (Oct 13 – 16). Watching the color along the country miles (they’re not longer than regular miles, just more scenic) builds the anticipation.
The showroom is beautifully decorated for the holiday season and Southern Supreme sets the tone, reminding us that soon, it will be time to celebrate the joys of good food, family, and friendships. This year, showroom decor includes a train you can watch for hours and a multitude of beautiful seasonal items–snowmen, Santas, candy canes, gingerbread men, and more. New products include the roasted red pepper relish, chocolate caramel sprinkled with sea salt , and holiday cranberry relish. Try the pumpkin whoopie pies, tea cookies, nutty fruitcake, cheese florets, and many other sweet and savory items.
Touring and watching the cake and cooking stations in operation is a great deal of fun as you hear the story of this family business that was started by Berta Scott more than 26 years ago. Tours are offered year-round, Monday through Friday from 9am – 2:30pm and groups can also contact Southern Supreme for scheduled tours.
During the Holiday Open House, tours will be offered approximately every 30 minutes. Sampling is their southern hospitality extended to you, your chance to taste just a few of the many items in the showroom and also talk with friendly staff. Most days, you’ll see Berta Scott working alongside her staff and this year is no different. Find her signing her popular cookbooks at the open house. Enjoy shopping–you’ll feel as if you fell into Santa’s workshop, with all the baking stations, gift basket area, and holiday buzz throughout the showroom.
While visiting the area, check out the country cookin’ and comfort foods in Bear Creek and see what’s happening during your stay. Lovely bed & breakfast inns and hotels offer great value for a getaway or gift ideas for the holidays.
