I just can't take another Honey Baked Ham!

I would rather go to McDonalds.

This year, I would like to up the game and get something better locally or mail order. (I'm on the North Shore near Salem). My husband subscribes to some ethnic stereotype that HBH is classy. Ugh. I just dread the day ever year when that overpriced, spongey, hunk of chemicals arrives.

I'm actually way more Irish than him. I love a good ham on a special occasion. But HBH is just really disappointing. I find it spongy any waterlogged and way too sweet.

I'm open to any suggestions. Specialty, mail order, big box or regular grocery store.

Please help me!

Thanks
