Butterball offers new spin on daily support for Thanksgiving hosts

Must read

GARNER, N.C. — Butterball has released its first-ever Butterball Turkey Talk-Line Comfort Calendar, a limited-edition calendar that provides Thanksgiving hosts 24 days of emotional support, practical tips and a whole lot of comfort. Limited quantities are available at The daily tips and recommendations are available via Instagram as of Nov. 1, when the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line reopened for its 41st year.

“The holiday season can be one of the most exciting times of year, but unfortunately, it can also be one of the most stressful,” said Nicole Johnson, director and 22-year veteran of the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line. “We’ve harnessed more than 40 years of Turkey Talk-Line expertise — the most common questions and sources of confusion as well as the angst that frequently accompanies them — to create this daily resource for often-overlooked holiday hosts.  Particularly as they grapple with inflation and other concerns, it’s an honor to offer our time-tested technical advice, emotional support and even a little levity in this fun, new format this holiday season.”

The calendars feature 24 days of thoughtfully-timed suggestions, from practical turkey prep tips — like when to shop, when to thaw and how to prep — to friendly reminders for a little “me time” along the way — all brought to life by a fun, illustrated character inspired by the Turkey Talk-Line experts. But that’s not all — busy hosts will want to stay tuned to Instagram, where Butterball will announce Headspace®, Instacart® and Spafinder® gift card giveaways throughout the month of November.
