Is there any difference between turkey brands?

I most always buy Butterball.  Once in awhile I'll switch to another brand, but always go back to Butterball.

 

I'm not sure I've tried Honeysuckle.  Will be watching your post for what others say.

Whichever is cheapest.  I have had outstanding luck with both brands

I live in suburban NYC and never have seen a Honeysuckle Turkey

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive what could go right.

I've had both in my opinion Butterball is the best🦃

I purchased a Honeysuckle turkey breast this year because that's all there was at the time in the store.  I've never had one before but heard they're good.  Fingers crossed.

I like fresh birds---no injected stuff in them.

I honestly don’t think it matters.  I’ve purchased both in the past. This year we’re having Butterball because that’s what Costco had in their freezer case.

I cooked Butterball once and thought their butter had an odd flavor.  I know all about safety with handling poultry as well as taught it, so flavor was the issue.  I never bought Butterball again.

I prefer the Honeysuckle White brand, or the fresh turkey breasts at Kroger.   Probably haven't bought Butterball brand more than 2x in 46 years.
