Of course, to make a delicious ham and cheese dipper you must choose premium quality product at a great value retailer, like Walmart. We found the Castle Wood Reserve® products right in the deli area coolers, near the produce section.

Aside from Castle Wood Reserve® Honey Ham, I also grabbed a pack of Castle Wood Reserve® Virginia Brand Smoked Ham and Castle Wood Reserve® Oven Roasted Turkey Breast. It’s always good to grab an extra pack or two of different varieties.
