Tropical Traditions Raw Honey Review & Giveaway (CLOSED)

12:01 AM

I have always grown up on raw honey. My parents live on 30+ acres in the country and for as long as I can remember, have been given raw honey. The reason for this is because there is a beekeeper who places his hives on my parent's property as it is surrounded by fields and fruit orchards. As we all know, bees LOVE wild flowers, tree blossoms and other vegetation that is found in the country. In exchange for keeping the bees on my mom and dad's property, the beekeeper gives them honey...raw clover honey. Because of this, I have never tasted store bought honey until I was married. There is just something so pure, wild and rich about raw honey...how can one go back to store brands after tasting the "real" thing? 
It is no surprise to me that Tropical Traditions carries Organic Canadian Raw Honey. With their wonderful product line, this is just one more luscious product that they offer to those of us looking to go organic and healthy in our lifestyles.

Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey is straight from the frontier areas of Canada and is only harvested 6 weeks during the summer months. Here is a bit more about this delectable treat...


In order for honey to be certified organic, the beehives must be placed in isolated areas miles from the dense population, industry, traffic congestion, and farm fields treated with chemicals and landfills. Second, a bee’s flying range is determined by their natural instinct which tells them to stay within their natural four mile range from the hive location. Finding area which can be certified organic is extremely difficult, which is why there are so few certified organic honeys on the market. Tropical Traditions sources its honey from hives in the wild frontier areas of Canada.

These regions are a rich source of wild vegetation that produce some of the finest honey in the world. The USDA and Canadian Organic Certification implies a rigorous set of standards and conditions that must be adhered to by both the producer (beekeeper) and the packager. All aspects of the honey production including the source of the nectar, forage area of the bees, management of the bees, extracting process, transportation, “lot” management, processing temperature, integrity (no co-mingling with non-organic honey), screening, and, packaging materials, are taken into account in the certification process.


As someone who has grown up on raw honey, I can tell you that honey from different flowers tastes different. Because most beekeepers focus on one type of honey, you can really see the difference. Color, texture and flavor are all effected when you take into consideration the location from which the honey has come.
So, for this review I was sent a 17 ounce jar of Organic Canadian Raw Honey. Right away, I noticed that the color was very light. It is almost white. When you think of honey, you probably picture clear and golden honey. This is not like that at all.
As you can see, this honey is not liquefied. The reason for this is because the honey has not been heated or processed...resulting in the crystallized form that you see in the jar. I am used to this, just not THIS crystallized.
To liquefy my honey so I could taste it, I just scooped some out of the jar and placed it in a mug. Then, I heated it for a few seconds. The above photo shows what it looks like prior to heating.
Once it was heated I was really shocked at how creamy it was. I am not used to my honey being like this and it was a very pleasant surprise. I put some butter on a slice of bread and topped it with some of this honey and my, oh my...what a TREAT!!!
The flavor was rich, creamy and sweet. I also gave some to my daughter, who is 3 and loves honey as well, and she ate it right up!

This Organic Canadian Raw Honey from Tropical Traditions comes in either the jar size like I received for $12.99, or you can purchase it in a 15 pound bucket for $135.99. If you consume a lot of honey (and I know people who do), this is a really great deal for you.

So, in my opinion...Tropical Traditions Organic Canadian Raw Honey is wonderful! I love how it is CREAMY and tastes sooo great. My children also loved it and I feel really great about giving them something that is organic and good for them.
Tropical Traditions has offered to give away a jar of this honey to one of my readers!! Yay!! Here are your entry options! :)

  2. Oh I would LOVE to try their raw honey!

    Suggestion to all...Do not heat raw honey in the microwave...that will kill the enzymes for sure and that is the main perk of raw honey :)
