Have Willow Tree, Will Travel

As many of you know, Willow Tree chicken salad is a New England favorite. For many families it’s a year-round staple. Not only is it popular as an everyday lunch or snack, but it seems that every year fans are coming up with more and more ways to enjoy Willow Tree chicken salad a variety of ways, for a variety of occasions.

If you’d like to bring Willow Tree Chicken Salad when visiting friends or family, we’ve compiled a few tips for bringing it along.

Here are some important details to keep in mind when traveling with Willow Tree chicken salad:

Our chicken salad must be held at a temperature between 32 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit. While ice is melting it maintains a constant 32 degrees, so a cooler packed with ice would hold our salad at the proper temperature.  As long as there is still even a small amount of ice in your cooler when you arrive at your destination the salad should still be between 32 and 40 degrees.  You may want to pack a probe style food grade thermometer (available at any grocery store) so you can check the temperature of the product at your final destination just to be safe.

A properly packed cooler with the adequate amount of ice should be fine for a very long time, but there are a lot of factors to consider, for example, total travel time, method of travel, outside air temperature, etc.

We hope you’ve found this information helpful in spreading Willow Tree’s tasty goodness nationwide. We will keep you posted when our product becomes available in states outside of New England.  For example, here is the latest on our expansion into the metro New York area.
