Editor's Choice: Royal Hawaiian Honey

One of the best things for me about working on Fancy Food is getting to sample an array of interesting products. This week’s Editor’s Choice certainly falls into that category. It’s Royal Hawaiian Honey Organic Christmas Berry ( I brought it home a few weeks ago and decided Sunday morning was a good time to try it.

The first thing you notice when you open the jar is the amber color and thick texture. I dipped a spoon into the jar. I had decided to try it on my French toast and the combination was delightful. The texture is a little grainy, a rich taste of brown sugar with some molasses and then, at the end, some spices. I look forward to trying it with cheese
and other types of bread.

Incidentally, honey is rich in antioxidants. So it is not only great tasting, but it’s good for you. Another great find. And for retailers, it would be a great treat in gift baskets, and since it is from bees from the Christmas Berry shrub, a great tie-in for a holiday season.
