Product Review: Bee Free Honee!  »

A lot of vegans are like, “what’s the big deal about honey?” I’ll tell you: IT’S SO GODDAMN GOOD. I love that stuff! Like, so much. And I don’t like agave at all, so I just gave up on the things I like to eat with honey.

Then I saw this Bee Free Honee! How excited was I?! So very excited. I got a free bottle to try and now I will tell you all about it.

I was skeptical but then when I opened the bottle, I was like, holy cannoli! It smells like honey! Plus, it looks like honey! I tried a little just on my finger and… it tastes like honey!

It doesn’t taste exactly like honey; It has a tartness that most honey doesn’t really have. But if you are a honey expert like me, you know that there are many different honeys that vary in taste depending on the flower source. This kind of tastes like one of the more exotic honey flavors. 

As I said, when I tried it straight, it tasted a lot like honey. Then I tried it on Shredded Wheat with warm coconut milk; it melted pretty quickly and the tartness came out more; I didn’t love it. Then I tried it on graham crackers with peanut butter, and it was great!

There are many other great things about Bee Free Honee. It’s made entirely of apples, beet sugar, and lemon juice. It’s safe for babies and people with honey allergies. Katie Sanchez, the creator of Bee Free Honee, also takes great pains to make her carbon footprint as small as possible: She sources local apples, and one day hopes to have production facilities powered by wind and solar energy. Plus, I’ve heard some weird stuff about agave, so Bee Free Honee would be a great alternative. You know what? This would be perfect in your Charoset at Passover!

Bee Free Honee is available throughout Minnesota, and you can buy it online at the Pangea Vegan Store!
