Get Thanksgiving Advice and Last Minute Help Online
For years, millions of harried Thanksgiving cooks have learned to depend on Butterball's Turkey Talk-Line for last minute advice (and even meal rescue).
This year, Butterball's free service is going high tech, with such helpful new features as turkey text messages, live blogging, recipes, how to videos, and a portion calculator, in addition to their traditional Turkey Talk-Line Service which is now in its 28th year.
According to this recent article about their new holiday cooking services in Ad Age, the hotline was started when a record 11,000 calls overwhelmed the company's phone staff of six. Now, with a staff of more than 50, the team advises and reassures more than 100,000 consumers each year.
As Bill Klump, senior VP-marketing said, "When the Turkey Talk-Line started 28 years ago, the phone was the best way to give people the important turkey-cooking information they needed. This year, Butterball continues to evolve and reach new cooks with initiatives like turkey text messages, a new mobile website and web chats, so that we can provide Butterball's expert holiday advice the way modern cooks want it, anytime and anywhere."
Information about other companies that offer free holiday cooking advice is available here on the Good Housekeeping website. Companies include Reynolds, Land O'Lakes, Ocean Spray, and the Turning Leaf Vineyard, in addition to the USDA.
