Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey Review & Giveaway

 

Tropical Traditions recently sent me a 17.6 ounce jar of their Organic Raw Honey to review.   I knew it would be good because all of the Tropical Traditions products are of such high quality.  I was still surprised though because I noticed a difference as soon as I opened the package.  This honey looked different than what I’m used to.  It came in a glass jar and was a creamy white color – not the typical golden color of honey I’m used to.

 

I was anxious to taste it and what a treat is was!  This stuff is very, very good.  It is thick, creamy and full of sweet flavor.  I use honey on a lot of things, but would eat this honey right from the jar (I actually DID on a couple of occasions).  It reminds me of cotton candy the way it is so sweet and melts in your mouth.   Until now I thought all honey was essentially the same other than the area  it came from, but obviously I was wrong.   Here is what makes Tropical Traditions Organic Honey so special:

 

“Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey comes from the frontier areas of Canada, and is only harvested during a 6-week period in the summer. Tropical Traditions is the exclusive source of this premium organic honey in the U.S. Most commercial honeys available on the market today come from bee farms, where the bees are controlled within a certain area and get their pollen from usually only one kind of flower. Many of the plants that produce these flowers (clover, orange blossom, etc.) are grown with pesticides and fertilizers as well. In addition, almost all honeys on the market are pasteurized in high heat and filtered, removing many of the beneficial nutrients and enzymes.”

“Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey has not been subjected to the heat of processing, only warmed enough to flow (same temperatures the honey would see inside the hive). We select only premium honey that is pure, smooth and creamy, with the consistency of soft margarine at harvest. It contains live yeast and enzymes, because it has not been processed. It also contains pollen because it has not been filtered—merely screened.”

“Fine textured crystals are characteristic of totally pure, unheated, unprocessed, raw honey. Properly crystallized honey has a fine, smooth texture. Crystallized honey preserves natural goodness and doesn’t drip. The more rapidly honey crystallizes the finer the texture will be. It will also turn harder over time as it crystallizes. Truly raw honeys do not deteriorate with age, but like fine wines, continue to age and develop into more complex tastes.”

 

So now I know that not all honey is created equal and I certainly won’t ever want to go back to the honey I was eating before!

 

You can order Tropical Traditions Organic Honey in the 17.6 ounce jar for $12.99.  It is available from Amazon.com or directly from the Tropical Traditions Website.   Be sure to follow Tropical Traditions on Facebook and Twitter because they run a lot of really good sales and promotions on all of their products.  You can also find some great honey recipes on the Tropical Traditions Blog.  Just search under “honey”.
