NEW 2019 BATCH NEW 227g JAR SIZE. This honey is no longer sold in the old 454g size. 

In August 2019 this honey was awarded a One-Star Great Taste Award by the UK Guild of Fine Food.

"Gooey, like toasted marshmallows!" are the words customers use to describe this exciting new thick creamy white honey from Mexico.

It comes from bees feeding on the white mesquite trees that litter the 6000ft high plains of the Mexican Plateau in Aguascalientes state of central Mexico.

Known as the "tree of life" Native American tribes have considered it a superfood for centuries to promote health and vitality. They use every part of the tree for food, medicine, fabric and flour.

Pods of the mesquite tree have properties that regulate blood sugar, promote fat burning and smooth digestion.

Wild mesquite trees are only found in Mexico and southwestern United States.

This honey has a 84% lab tested purity mesquite pollen count.

The judges who awarded this honey a One-Star Great Taste Award described it:

"A thick, creamy set honey with a bright, fruity aroma. The smokiness of mesquite is quite intriguing, adding balance to the sweetness without catching in the back of the throat. A complex product that could work well as an accompaniment to sweet and savoury food."

Read on for more details about the origin, taste and uses of this set honey.

The Mexican Plateau is a region of 6000ft high plains that cover most of northern and central Mexico.

Wild mesquite trees fill the horizon of these arid desert plains. They grow from 8 - 20m high and bear pod-like fruits.

Bees feed on the nectar from pods to produce our Raw Organic White Velvet Mesquite Honey.

Magic honey

In awe of how fast our honey was delivered and how well it was packaged. The follow up information and after sales service is outstanding. As for the honey it's nothing like anything we've ever tasted before. My husband suffers from IBS and he's been taking the white velvet Mesquite honey in warm water every day before bed. It's helped his symptoms to the point that we will be ordering more in the next few days. I can no recommend this honey enough.

A hit with y grandchildren too!

I was pleased with the two differ honeys I bought on this occasion. I bought two Velvet Mesquite (one as a gift) and the one that originates from Mexico. My grandson (7) in particular loves honey like me and enjoyed both of them as I did. My granddaughter (5) wasn’t a fan of the Mexican one but did enjoy the creamy velvet one. Overall I’m always happy with the quality of the honeys and am reassured the ingredients are natural and organic. As someone trying to reduce unrefined sugar in my diet, they provide a high quality sweetness and taste that I love without the negative consequences of eating unrefined sugar. I’d recommend these products to everyone.
They’re particularly nice on hot buttered toast! 😋
