At first glance, probiotics and honey have little in common. But (honey) bear with me! They both support good health — and I just tried out one of each. So they totally fit into a review together, right? Regardless of whether you think I’m losing my product-review-loving mind or not, read on for my take on two health enhancers!
Golden Blossom Honey
When the folks from Golden Blossom Honey emailed me, I was running low on honey, not to mention that we were all battling mild colds. Hey, sometimes the world just provides and you have to say yes to a review! But I’m so glad I did and not just because I was able to cross honey off my shopping list. Golden Blossom Honey turned out to be even more money (as in awesome) than my usual honey! Both my husband and I thought it upped the ante on our usual honey, and tasted more pure than other honeys we’ve tried. The company uses 100 percent U.S. honey to create a blend composed of extra-white clover, sage buckwheat and orange blossom, which the company says results in a distinct flavor, color and fragrance possessed by no other honey brand. It also seemed to be a little quicker to get out of the honey bear — no insanely sloooooow drip.
So not only did I love the honey, we used it as a cold remedy to soothe our throats. Because cough syrups aren’t recommended for young kids, coughs and colds can be super miserable for them (and their parents!). Luckily, they’re much happier drinking warm water with lemon and honey or taking a sweet and yummy cold remedy like this one.
