Pure Raw Buckwheat Honey
Would not buy again
This is the only time I have been less than pleased with a purchase from this company. The honey was so old it had turned to sugar and had a strong stale taste. Normally I would have returned the product if it had been bought in a store.

Buckwheat honey is as healthy as it gets. Swansons is very trustworthy. Price is great.

This Y.S. Eco Bee Farm honey is great with my apple cider vinegar. I recommend it highly.

Rich In Flavor
This second bottle of this honey that i'll be ordering. I love it.. To me it's like honey butter with a distinct flavor, color, and aroma. It can be described as "earthy", not surgery but sweet enough for me. I suspect that it would provide some good nutrients because of it density and richness. It's my favorite honey.

Buckwheat not for me in this form
I love honey, but this didn't taste like honey. It may be healthy, but with me taste is important. I gave it away to someone else.

Tasty. Good Flavor
Relatively expensive for the amount you're getting, but an excellent product nonetheless. Rich buckwheat honey flavor; very tasty though a little musky. It's not my favorite brand of buckwheat honey, (Tree of Life and Ames), but it compares well to and surpasses most of the others, and I've tried quite a few. I use it in my tea and it makes a wonderful addition to Mexican hot chocolate.
Consistency is bit stiff; it's a little too hard to get out of the jar. I just wish it came in a larger size.

I learned on Dr. Oz that this honey has more antioxidants than regular honey

I wasn't sure if the bottle of buckwheat honey was spoiled. The taste was highly unusual so I threw it out. I will try another, again, as I would like to use it if the next one tastes better.

One Jar Goes Beyond A Month!
I am the picky weight watchers, and found this jar to last beyond one month, using about 1/2 teaspoon per cup, with the robust dark flavor, for a bit of winter energy, on long parking lots walks to heat my car in the morning!! It beats the snack in the car for fatigue on the long drives to work!!

Buckweat honey delight!
I am glad I discovered this honey a few years ago. It has rich flavor and unique aroma. I was very careful with any kind of honey before because almost all of them caused allergy. But this one - not only delicious, aromatic and pure, but also doesn`t cause any allergy. Only one complain: I wish that little jar of honey could last longer for me....

origing of product is not clear
Taste is a bit different from buckwheat honey that I used to try. Place of origin of the product: USA and Canada is too wide. I would expect a seller to provide more exact info on geographical location of a bee honey farm and date of production.

You can't get organic honey at this price anywhere unless you raise bees, excellent.

Was told I could only consume buckwheat honey. Not much buckwheat 'round these parts. I read the reviews, only 2. One was for, the other against. Not much help there. The one against said he didn't like this "yuppy" product and would not buy it again. Because of diet restrictions I decided to give it a try anyway. I love it! It's different, yes, but in a good way. I will continue to buy/use this product and am very happy you carry it. Thank you Swanson.

unique and desirable
I love this honey because it has a lot of flavor too the sweetness. For those looking for just a "sweet" "sugary" taste, this is not the right honey for you. For those who enjoy a strong flavored honey this is it with a woodsy, bold and deep lasting flavor. It is thick and creamy yet can be spread on bread. Its thickness and creaminess keep it from crystallizing.. yet the honey doesn't last long enough in the jar for us to see if it crystallizes!

not bad at all
The taste of this honey, while not as good as the lighter honey (hence the overall rating of 4), is still pretty good. Another thing to keep in mind is generally speaking the darker the honey the more anti-oxidants and other nutrients it contains so the very dark buckwheat variety excels in that department.

Really awful taste
I eat a lot of "hippy" foods, and I must say I had a real hard time eating this. I am sure it's really good for you but gosh, it tastes terribly.
