Mohawk Valley Trading Co. Raw Honey Review & Giveaway {3/10}

MVTC Honey Review via Spring Mountain LivingYum.  That’s the word that seems to echo on my tastebuds ever since I started sampling the bounty of raw honey that Mohawk Valley Trading Company sent to my house.  And a true bounty it was in a variety of flavors; Wildflower, Buckwheat and even Tulip-Poplar Black-Locust.  All tasty, all raw and all the health benefits left intact (the way they should be!).  

If you haven’t already had the truly delicious experience of tasting Mohawk Valley Trading Company’s raw honey, then you haven’t had a truly tasty honey experience.  With the variety of flavors available, Mohawk Valley Trading Co. is sure to please anyone.  Each flavor I tried had its own tempting and unique flavors.  The flavor of the Raw Wildflower honey was super sweet while the Raw Buckwheat had more of a rich and robust flavor.  The Raw Tulip-Poplar Black-Locust had a flavor all its own,with a hint of an orange cream aftertaste.  But for the pièce de résistance, the Comb HoneyMVTC Honey Comb Review via Spring Mountain LivingThis was my very first experience trying honey in this form.  Actually, it was the first time anyone in our house had tried eating honey comb honey.  And I won’t lie – we did look up the how of consuming it.  After fiddling through a book on raising bees, it seemed simple enough; just eat it – comb and all!  Mohawk Valley Raw Honey Comb Review via Spring Mountain LivingSo, that’s just what we did!  I cut off little squares of the comb and passed them out the the boys.  The comb honey not only makes a wondefully sweet treat alone, but tastes great eaten on warm bread or cake (just spread onto warmed cake like a thick butter or cream).  

So, what’s my verdict?

Honey good.  Sugar bad.  Ok, ok.  I realize it might not really be that simple for everyone.  But for me?  I ditched the processed stuff long ago and opted for a diet rich in whole, natural foods and pure, raw honey makes the cut! And raw honey doesn’t just make a great food, but it’s a great natural medicine too.  Did you know that you can make your own cough medicine (for children over one year of age) using only raw honey and a few other natural, whole food ingredients? It’s been found that raw honey is actually more effective at treating coughs in kids than dextromethorphan (the active ingredient in store-bought cough syrup).

If you don’t have a sweet tooth, that’s ok.  There are still seemingly endless ways to use raw honey.  Need some help finding them?  Check out our article that gives you 10 Unconventional Uses for Raw Honey.  You can even ditch your face soap and wash with raw honey instead!

    I love, LOVE honey – and I truly enjoy tasting honey from different locations – I swear that I can taste the pollens and smell the flowers that the bees worked so hard to harvest. Raw honey is the best!

  2. Susan says

    I’m very interested in trying these unique and exceptional types/flavors of honey! I love to use raw honey for culinary and medicinal purposes because of the high nutrient value and amazing taste!

  3. says

    I would love to try this honey because I just discovered the difference between cane sugar and honey. Although I’ve been using honey for awhile, it just makes sense why it’s better for the body. Plus, I’m running low on my current jar and I could use an awesome replacement! :)

  4. Debbie Jackson says

    We would love to win and try your raw honey., I understand it has more health benefits than processed honey.

  5. Jennifer (robbins) A. says

    I would love to try Mohawk Valley Trading Co.’s raw honey, because I have never eaten raw honey before, and I’ve heard good things about the health benefits of raw honey & would love to try some! : )

  6. Jennifer (robbins) A. says

    I would love to try the Mohawk Valley Trading Co.’s maple syrup! I love to substitute maple syrup for processed sugar in recipes, while cooking.

  7. Jeffrey says

    Hi, my name is Jeff and I am a honeyoholic! Raw honey usually has a nice robust flavor and that is what I like. I’m betting this would be awesome drizzled on my morning oatmeal.

  8. Paula Herron says

    I have been using honey for a while now as a natural sweetner. I have diabetes and have found that using honey helps to control the ups and downs. I would love to win and give a try to some of Mohawk Valley Honey!

  9. Ann Marie Mones says

    Over the past year I have slowly switched over to healthier cooking, growing a lot of my own food, and substituting raw honey for sugar in my recipes. I love honey, and never realized before what a difference there is between the store bought stuff and real, raw, honey. I am down to one small jar, and need more!

  10. Sheryl Cheingthong-Simpson says

    Honey was always on our table growing up. Trying to go back to my roots and would love to try the honey from Mohawk Trading.

  11. Beverly says

    Honey is one of the ingredients recommended by many on the Ray Peat Fans FB page for those of us with sleep issues…..take a spoonful at bedtime and wash down with milk or water, may need to repeat if awaken in middle of night. There is an anecdotal report of a naturopath recommending this to a family for their son with health issues. He ended up growing taller than the other child. Some think that the honey does something with HGH – human growth hormone……

  12. Debbie Epps Kennedy says

    I love honey for the taster and the health benefits! And I love orange cream, so really want to try The Raw Tulip-Poplar Black-Locust…..

  13. Julie M says

    I am new to buying honey local and I love it! Can really tell a difference in the flavor. Nothing better than a steaming mug of tea sweetened with honey : )

  14. Kelly Malers says

    I have not had honey still in the comb in years and years (as a kid) but we do use raw honey for so many different things and I would love to try this brand. Thank you for the opportunity.

  15. Tami Shurling says

    My dad has bees and I’ve tried the honey there, he will be bringing me 2 hives this Spring. I would love to try some from a different area as I know the taste is affected by what the bees gather from.

  16. Jhanelle says

    I really love honey! I’m excited to try this brand because of its interesting flavors….and they look so pure!

  17. Rosie says

    This honey sounds fantastic! And I haven’t been able to find comb honey at stores near me. This is as good as it gets, I’m dreaming of this honey!

  18. Cynthia says

    We love honey and love to try different kinds. We are expecting to get some bees this spring if the weather doesn’t kill them. We lost our first hive last year to wax moths. Hopefully we will have our own honey next year.

  19. Terressa Ferguson Zook says

    I’ m a honeyaholic, literally, I eat it everyday. I also wash my face & make beauty masks with it. Food of the Gods is what Honey is to me. Thank you for the chance to win this.

  20. Aneesa says

    Mohawk Valley Trading Company is located in my home state! Love raw honey and supporting local businesses!

    Yum, raw honey and sun butter on homemade bread which is toasted!
