Tropical Traditions organic raw honey review and giveaway!

This giveaway is sponsored by Tropical Traditions. Tropical Traditions provided me with a free sample of this product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review or sponsor a product giveaway in return for the free product.


Welcome to a great new giveaway sponsored by Tropical Traditions! Read on to find out how to enter to win some of this delicious Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey. This Canadian honey is 100% organic, raw, wild, and unprocessed — and just look how thick it is. Most honey cannot be certified organic, because bees range out for miles from their hives. Certified organic honey has to come from hives in isolated areas, so this honey is from the remote frontier regions of Canada.


We’ve already found a lot of uses for Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey. MashupDad was recently down with a summer cold, for instance, and made an exception to his low carb rule by adding Tropical Traditions Raw organic honey to his evening tea. He’s been raving about the quality ever since!


And, I used Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey when making Dairy Free Chocolate Avocado Pudding earlier this week. So far it’s been lovely in tea, on its own, or as a natural sweetener for recipes. I’m going to try substituting this for sugar in other recipes, too, since it added a fantastic flavor.


Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey is unprocessed, unheated, and unfiltered, resulting in a thick, creamy honey that contains pollen and fine textured crystals very unlike the processed honeys you might be used to. The difference, however, is all good: Try organic raw honey, and you’re unlikely to go back.
