100% Certified Organic Raw Honey
Very sweet honey, too bad it is not offered at large amounts. I use it a lot.

This is my favorite honey! I use it daily in my evening tea and look forward to it every day. I've already repurchased it several times.

Y.S. Eco Bee Farm 100% Certified Organic Raw Honey
I love this stuff! I use it mostly in my tea, but it can be used as a spread as well. Only drawback is it's pretty solid in colder months so if you want it as a liquid you have to warm it up first. The price here is much better than in my local health food store.

I love honey. I love organic raw honey even more. This is the ladder. Raw honey is more like a thick paste than the liquid type portrayed so much on TV, or as the vast majority of honey on the shelves in the grocery store.
I found the raw kind better in flavor. I pretty much ate the entire jar in 3 days. I used this when I cooked, or made tea, or not and just ate it straight out of the jar. I miss it now. :(
Although 1 pound of honey sounds like a lot, it came in a deceptively small jar, like somebody took a baseball and squished it into the shape of a jar. I guess because honey is so dense, 1 pound doesn't take up much room.
Now raw honey isn't treated, or processed like the liquid honey that is so prevalent in most places, so does that mean it is less safe to use? That's your call to make, just remember the warning on all honey containers not to feed honey to infants under one year of age.
I for one am fine enough to type this review after eating the whole container. :)

I had never used raw honey before and decided to try it out, per Dr. OZ. He suggest you never use regular honey because of the way it is produced. I love this honey and it tastes sweeter than regular honey. Swanson beats any price out there on the market and the quality it superior!

Raw Honey Rocks!
This is so delicious! I literally cannot wait to eat it every day. It has a wonderful, sweet taste. I usually eat about 1 tsp/day. If there is anyone who has never tried raw honey before, I highly recommend this product. It's organic and cost effective.

Organic, tastes good, is good for you. I eat it with peanut butter using a teaspoon. I take a little honey on the teaspoon and a little peanut butter on the teaspoon and it tastes so good. If I am not careful, I can eat half the bottle of the honey and peanut butter, lol.

One of the Best
I have tried a lot of honey, my husband and I are Honey Addicts! This one is my second favorite next to a local honey I got for $40, so this is my go to favorite. Its affordable, the flavor is always consistent and I like that its a paste and not syrupy. Very good quality. Highly recommend.

Of all the different types of honey I have tried this one is at the top.

Best Honey Ever
This is a great value and the best honey ever! Spread it on everything I want sweet!

I couldn't decide which raw, organic honey to purchase, so I bought two types at the same time. I compared them both, and placed the results into the categories below. The brands of honey I bought are...
Y.S. Eco Bee Farm, 100% Certified Organic Raw Honey, 1 lb. paste, $7.19
Really Raw Honey, 1 lb. Jar, $10.53
Strangely, the Y.S. Eco Bee brand doesn't have that phrase anywhere on its jar. Instead it is labeled "Y.S. Organic Bee Farms". I don't know where the "Eco" came from, or where the "Farms" went. ;-)
TASTE: WINNER: Y.S. Eco Bee
The Y.S. Eco Bee honey is one of the best tasting substances on Earth. My girlfriend said it was "disappearing honey", because if I didn't hide it from her it would disappear. And the whole jar of it did disappear, quickly. After it was gone we tried the Really Raw Honey. It has a more "molasses" taste to it, and isn't as sweet. To me, it tastes terrible. Upon her first and only taste of it, my girlfriend said, "I don't want any more of that, ever". It fell upon me to make the rest of the pound of honey "go away". I consumed it all so it didn't go to waste, but it was not a pleasant task.
SPREADABILITY: WINNER: Really Raw Honey
The Y.S. Eco Bee honey is hard, and takes some effort to remove from the jar. It would tear a piece of bread to pieces if you tried to spread it on at room temperature. The Really Raw Honey is very thick, but is easily removed from the jar with a spoon. It melts into coffee faster, too.
MADE IN THE USA: WINNER: Really Raw Honey
Really Raw Honey is made in the USA. Y.S. Organic Bee Farms is based in Sheridan, IL, but the jar states on its label "A product of Brazil & Canada".
WAX: WINNER: Y.S. Eco Bee
Really Raw Honey's website states, "The crunchy bits of pollen, propolis, and capping wax that crown each jar of our honey are called 'cappings'... They are sometimes referred to as 'Farmer's Chewing Gum.' Because they do contain bits of wax, many people like to chew them and discard the wax afterwards."
I am not one of those people. The top of the honey was indeed capped with nasty looking "stuff" with a granular texture. I scraped some of it off the top and put it in my mouth. I let it dissolve and swallowed the honey, and tried to chew the mess. It does not stick together. I had to constantly use my tongue to bring the whole mess together, and then each chew would spread it out again. Then when I tried to spit it out, I kept finding grains of it in my mouth that had to be gathered up and spit out. I then scraped the rest of the mess off the top of the honey and threw it away, wasting about a tablespoon of honey. The "cappings" was a negative attribute in my experience. The Y.S. Eco Bee honey contained no such funk.
ECONOMY: WINNER: Y.S. Eco Bee
Not only is the Y.S. Eco Bee $3.34 per pound cheaper, the Really Raw Honey isn't as sweet, so I found myself using more of it to sweeten my coffee.
THE FINAL WORD: I am now a Y.S. Eco Bee customer. It's perfect for my coffee, green tea, and for making veggie smoothies in the blender. I am not going to warm it up to spread it, or try to use it to sweeten other cold liquids, though. For those chores I went to the grocery store and bought a two pound plastic bottle of Aunt Sue's Raw, Wild, Strained, Natural honey; which is a traditional liquid. At eight bucks, it's about half the cost of the Y.S. Eco Bee. The taste of Aunt Sue's isn't nearly as good, but it still tastes far better than the Really Raw Honey.

Real Quality Honey, A Very Sweet Deal
This product is a wonderful food. The quality is the finest. My grandson, age 20, exclaimed when I gave him his own jar,
"Wow! Now I know that there is a God!"
That is a bit dramatic, but it is also remarkable given the character of my very quiet, studious grandson.
We all like this honey on biscuits, toast, and as a sweetener. I will soon order more!

Honey of a taste
I try to avoid sugar, but I love to bake and this honey is so tasty I use it on my toast with almond butter, I need to use very little because it is so sweet and has such a good taste. Other brands are not quite the same to me. Raw, organic, good price and tastes grea t.! can' t ask for more
August 23, 2013
I knew I would like this before I even tried it but when I did taste it, I was honestly blown away.. I cannot get enough, it's delicious and so nutritious from being unpasteurized and unfiltered. YUM!
August 20, 2013
Great product - we use it regularly
I like to buy this from Swanson.... can't get this size at this price anywhere else.

Great raw honey
This honey is good, its in liquid form not paste so its more flexible. I like that its in glass not plastic so its not as handy as a squeeze bottle but oh well. Its terrific honey!
July 30, 2013
I enjoy adding this in my tea, yogurt, and many more. I love the paste-like texture, and I know this honey carries a whole lot of benefits.
