In 2012, the Hillshire Farm brand launched a new line of premium pre-cooked smoked sausage called Gourmet Creations. This spring, the brand introduces a new flavor to join the portfolio — Chicken Basil Pesto with Parmesan and Provolone Cheese. The new variety features no artificial colors, flavors or byproducts and 13 grams of protein. Also this spring, Hillshire Farm introduces Angus Smoked Sausage made with high quality, premium cuts of meat. Available in three varieties, including Smoked, Polska Kielbasa and Italian Style, Hillshire Farm Angus Smoked Sausage provides that extra kick of spice and flavor with no MSG.
