Tropical Traditions Canadian Raw Honey Review and Giveaway!

Tropical Traditions sent me Canadian Raw Honey to review and giveaway! This giveaway is open to US and Canada.


Grandpa Spiehs has talked about raw honey; I have never tried it until Tropical Traditions sent me some! I'm a fan!

This morning I made Oat Meal Gems. It's a recipe I grew up with. The boy's and I like it best served with honey on top!


The recipe is super easy! Set your oven to 350 degrees. You combine the first 1/2 of the ingredients listed. Stir and set it aside.



 The you combine the second set of ingredients. Stir and combine both together.


Then pour in a greased {I use Olive Oil spray} 9x12 pan. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick is inserted, and comes out clean.

Spread with Tropical Tradition's Canadian Raw Honey and you are set! YUMMY!


About Tropical Tradition's Canadian Raw Honey:

  • It is only harvested during a 6-week period in the summer and comes from the frontier areas of Canada.
  • Most commercial honeys on the market come from bee farms, where the bees are controlled and get their pollen from one kind of flower. The flowers are usually grown with pesticides and fertilizers. This removes the beneficial enzymes and nutrients. This is not how this honey is processed. The honey I reviewed has live yeast and enzymes. It's pure, smooth and creamy.
  • In order for honey to be certified organic, the beehives must be placed in an isolated area. Far from huge populated areas. Bee's flying range is determined by their instinct. Finding areas that a clear of population is becoming more and more challenging.
You can win what Tropical Traditions sent me! A 17.6 ounce jar of Canadian Raw Honey. A $19.50 value!
