Bee Free Honee Review and Giveaway


Around our house we love trying new and unique products and we especially like to try anything sweet. We also eat quite a bit of honey, but I’m also a little leery about giving “Bug” too much honey because of his allergies. I know that some people say that honey is good for seasonal allergies, but as a mom I’m just not comfortable giving him too much. The sad part is that he loves honey and wants to eat it on everything and of course when I won’t let him have it I’m being mean but really I’m not. But real recently I was introduced to Bee Free Honee, and I was very excited to read that it’s a honey made from apples and not bees!! I was even more thrilled when I was given a chance to review a bottle and offer you guys a giveaway!

About Bee Free Honee (taken from website):

Bee Free Honee is a unique sweetener with a slightly tart flavor. It is "apple honey" in that it is made from apples rather than by bees! We use only three all natural ingredients, apple, pure cane sugar, and lemon juice. There is nothing artificial, no added color and no corn syrup.

Just as you would have more than one flavor jam in your refrigerator, this gives you a new flavor for your pantry. It is an apple syrup for your pancakes as well as an all natural sweetener. It is great for kids and it is Minnesota made while strictly using Midwest apples. It is Bee Free Honee and if your co-op or grocery doesn't carry it, then please be sure to ask for it!

Bee Free Honee is great for:
* Vegans
* Small Children, as there is no fear of Botulism
* Those allergic to traditional honey
* Foodies looking for a new flavor
* Those looking for stable pricing against the fluctuating costs of traditional honey due to the decline of the bee population.

Bee Free Honee can be used in BBQ sauces, hot and cold beverages, vinegarettes, granola, cakes, breads, basically...if you use traditional honey in the recipe, you can use Bee Free Honee interchangeably.

Pour it on your pancakes, waffles, or french toast, it makes wonderful apple syrup. It's "apple honey" on your morning toast, yogurt, or oatmeal. Use Bee Free Honee any way you can imagine...but most importantly, enjoy it.

What makes this even more exciting is the fact that it is made in Minnesota, using strictly Midwest apples. The bottles and caps, labels, boxes that they are cased in are all from the Twin Cities. This product is as local as we could make it.

I am so excited to be able to share this with you and pleased you have chosen to visit this website. I know that if you are willing to give my honee a try, that you will be pleasantly surprised. It's not too sweet, nor too tart and suprisingly like honey, but with a brand new twist.

So please visit often to see where we are sampling, for recipes, and honee news!

Thank you for your support and remember...Bee Free & Natural!

Our Thoughts:

We were sent two bottles of the Bee Free Honee and it arrived very quickly. Once the Bee Free Honee arrived I just had to get a small taste, since it’s made from apples and not bees. My first initial taste made my taste buds dance with the super sweet flavor that was just a bit tart. My husband was also very impressed with his first tiny sample but the real test was with “Bug”, he really likes his honey and we were about to see what he thought. Well…much to our surprise after a small taste on the end of his finger he was hooked! He immediately asked for more than wanted some on toast!

After our first initial taste we decided to give it the ultimate test…our Sunday dinner breakfast where we always have my parents and sister over for a huge home cooked breakfast that usually consist of homemade biscuits, pancakes, bacon, sausage and gravy. So what better time right? We always usually have a jar of honey from the local bee keeper but this Sunday it was different we put the Bee Free Honee on the table. My dad was the first to recognize that his usually honey wasn’t on the table for his biscuits but he didn’t mind he is like me he will try anything once. But, my mom and sister was a bit more difficult to convince to give it a try but they finally gave in and they love it! My dad was immediately hooked and wanted to know where to get his own jar of Bee Free Honee! This honey gave the biscuit’s a wonderful flavor that is hard to describe because it’s so unique, I would almost say it was desert like.

Since that Sunday we have used the Bee Free Honee several times, my husband and dad mixed up some mean BBQ sauce using the Bee Free Honee and man was it ever the best BBQ sauce we have ever had, I wish they would have written down the recipe but they say it’s a secret but I’ll get I out of them for you guys! This honey is super delicious and I love that I can give “Bug” his honey toast for breakfast anytime he wants it without having to worry about the allergies.

Bottom Line:

I just can’t say enough about Bee Free Honee and I could go on all day about all the wonderful ways we have tried this honey. I just love it on everything that need a sweet and tart kick! The possibilities of the delicious concoctions you could come up with to feature Bee Free Honee and if you have a favorite recipe that calls for honey, I challenge you to replace the bee honey with the Bee Free Honee and see what kind of gem you will end up with.

Looking for honey that will be safe of bee allergies and vegan free? If so I would totally recommend picking up a bottle of Bee Free Honee, it will be love at first taste!

  1. The recipe for Apple Honey Granola sounds good, but the first thing that came to mind was a recipe I ran across recently and bookmarked for Peanut Butter Balls.

  13. I'm a vegetarian and I put honey on everything! I use it on/in all my fake meat products, toast, tea, etc. I really want to try this because we go through regular honey quickly in this house and I've always wanted to try honey from a different source. Email in profile.

  49. I'm vegan, so I don't use honey, so this would be a great product for me. I would use it to make baklava, a food I love but haven't eaten since becoming vegan 10 years ago.
