It’s been a while. I’ve got many things in the works. But that’s news for a later time. Right now I’m here to bring you a review of this awesome HoneyComb!
When I think of honey, I think about the bottled version; the one with the bee mascot. I often use that one for baking, making sauces or to sweeten various teas. However I had never tried honey in its natural form; straight from the hive as honeycomb. Well, not until I received the Honey Land 100% Pure Raw Unfiltered Honeycomb.
I’m all for trying new things and was intrigued when discovering honeycomb and the fact that people use this as a form of candy. I have a boyfriend with a ridiculous sweet tooth so this was something we had to try.
Upon receiving this item, the first thing I noticed that the packaging was a little sticky. Some of the honeycomb has melted from the heat and I am assuming the little transfer of honey was from the travel. However, no seals were broken so all was okay.
After receiving the honeycomb I had to do a little research to see how to use it. The consensus was to cut off a small piece of the honeycomb and chew on it as you would a soft candy. When the flavor is gone you are left with a little ball of wax which you can simply discard. It didn’t taste anything like I imagined it would. This isn’t a bad thing; this honey was amazingly delicious. We ended up using it on pancakes for breakfast by squeezing honey from the comb onto the pancakes and as a sweetener for tea. It tasted great used in these ways as well.
It interested me to learn that there are many health benefits to honeycombs, such as cholesterol management and improving liver functions.
Everyone loves honey, but this product takes the health benefits of honey one step further. Straight from the honeybee hive, this is a solid structure of beeswax used to store honey. A honeycomb is a mass of hexagonal wax cells built by honey bees in their nests to contain their larvae and stores of honey and pollen. The wax that makes up honeycomb contains very-long-chain fatty acids, along with long-chain alcohols, or esters. The honey that is produced and stored within the honeycomb is the purest, rawest form of honey, and the wax the honeycomb is made of has tons of nutritional value and health benefits. Some of those benefits are: promotes healthy glucose metabolism, helps normalize liver function; eradicates free radicals; and the fatty alcohols that honeycomb is made of appear to significantly lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol (Livestrong.com) – amazon.ca
This is definitely a bonus because there are not many items out there that you can say taste great and are good for you. If you enjoy honey, I’d definitely recommend giving this a try. It is definitely a tasty treat!
