FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Minooka, IL, September 8, 2022 – Meyer Bees is excited to announce the release of their handmade Honey Advent Calendar sampler. The colors, flavors, aromas, and textures of the honey are 100% raw and natural. Each honey variety is influenced by the flower blossoms from which the bees gathered nectar; no artificial ingredients have been added. This sampler is a terrific way to experience a wide assortment of honey’s natural flavors. This limited-edition item is perfect for the beekeeper or honey lover in your life and makes a great addition to any holiday table.
“We are so excited to offer this unique product to our customers,” said Meyer Bees President Dave Meyer. “The calendar is a great way to explore different varieties of honey from around the country. Our local Meyer Bees wildflower honey is also included. The Honey Advent Calendar sampler exposes you to varieties of honey you may never have tried and I think you’ll find a few new favorites in this mix!”
All honey flavors and colors come from the flowers the bees visited to collect nectar; no dyes or flavors are added. The honey’s flavor, color, and liquidity are determined by the nectar of the flowers, not the fruit itself; therefore, the blossom name is not necessarily the resulting flavor. For example, the flavor of blueberry blossom honey originates from the flower nectar, not the blueberry fruit, and therefore does not taste like blueberries. The nectar sources that the bees forage on change throughout the year with different honey varieties being produced in spring, summer, and fall. Certain varieties can take a year or more to collect enough honey to include them in this sampler.
The raw honey in the honey sampler has not been heated or pasteurized as heating can destroy beneficial enzymes, pollens, antioxidants, and nutritional value. Granulation can occur in some sampler jars, turning the honey from liquid to solid. Some honey can granulate in a few weeks while others take a year or more. Granulated honey is 100% natural and can be consumed as a spreadable solid or re-liquefied via warming.
The holiday advent calendar sampler makes the perfect holiday gift. The honey sampler is available for pickup at the company’s Minooka, IL location or can be ordered from their website and shipped anywhere in the US. Larger quantities of the individual varieties are also available for purchase. Gift options are available.
