Where to Buy:  HoneyPax on Foodzie

Product Description:

Enjoy pure, raw honey anytime, anywhere! You’ve never enjoyed honey like this before. Smartly packaged in a 10ml environmentally-friendly packet, HoneyPax is a perfect way to experience the incredible taste of pure Tupelo honey wherever life takes you. On the trail, in meeting, at the gym or dinner party, its true gourmet goodness on the go.

What I Think:

For many years now, my preference when it comes to honey has been raw honey.  I don’t really use honey much except that I will occasionally drizzle it in a cup of tea, so I never gave much thought to the type of tea I would purchase, so long as it was raw honey (and preferably locally harvested), I was good with that.

I had never had the opportunity to try Tupelo honey until it arrived in the Foodzie September Tasting Box.  And, now that I have tasted it, I realize just what it is that I’ve been missing!  WOW!

Sure, it’s honey.  It’s sweet, it’s sticky, and it tastes like honey.  But, there is a lot more to it than just “honey flavor.”  There are subtle nuances to consider.  I can taste notes of jasmine, my favorite floral flavor.  There is a light, fruity flavor that adds a little bit of tangy taste to the honey.  It truly is the best honey I’ve ever tasted.

And I like these honey packets from HoneyPax.  They are easy to open, hold just the right amount of honey for toast or biscuits (I tasted my sample on 8-grain toasted bread).  They are much neater and easier to use.  I appreciate that they are packaged “environmentally friendly.”   And, I like that they are imprinted with a special code on them to tell you just where your honey was harvested!  Coolness!

On the down side, it is rather expensive.  And because of all the amazing flavor in this honey, I would most likely not use it in my tea because I feel that the flavor of the tea would overpower the flavor of the honey… and that would be quite a waste.  Not to mention the fact that since my first love is with tea, I would not want something that might interfere with the flavors of my tea, so I prefer a more neutral flavored sweetener when I sweeten my tea.  And I don’t really use honey except for the times when I do want to sweeten my tea … so I really don’t think that this honey would become a permanent part of my pantry.

My Final Thoughts:

Absolutely delicious.  I am really happy I had the opportunity to try it, even though I don’t think it is something I’d buy regularly, it certainly was a nice treat.

    Anne- Great article. You’ve got me thinking of heading out to buy some Tupelo honey. The Pax idea is a great idea! I wonder if the packaging is what makes this honey a little more on the expensive side? In any case, I’m enjoying your site. Thanks- Mike
