The judges loved our novelty flavours
Here’s what the Great Taste Awards judges thought about our Salted Honey:
“This (Salted Honey) has quite a wow factor. It is genuinely fun. The provenance is fascinating, and the product is genuinely novel and interesting. It is fun even thinking what you might do with it, apart from eating it by the spoonful from the jar – with biscuits, on ice-cream, or with sourdough toast.”
“This is a very creamy, buttery honey and the balance of salt and sweetness is moreish and spot on. The grains of salt offer little explosions in your mouth. A lovely alternative to salted caramel.”
“Very unusual and wonderfully delicious. The texture is opulent in its delivery, coating the mouth in a range of flowery sweet saltiness and almost lactic richness.”
“What an amazing texture and explosion of creamy, fudge-like honey with the added excitement of salt. An amazing product.”
And here’s what they thought about our Cacao Honey:
“Dark and mysterious, thick and unctuous, with a really beautifully balanced mix of delicious honey to cacao. This (Cacao Honey) is a clever mix and it has worked well, delivering a super flavour of two favourites with quality and skill.”
“This raw wildflower honey and cacao is an extraordinary product. There is a long lasting taste of the cacao and honey which work incredibly well together, balanced and moreish, with a slightly grainy texture yet a distinct taste of the wonderful honey – a clever product.”
“This is so interesting – on the one hand you get a spread almost like Nutella, and on the other hand a granular honey with a strong hint of cacao. If you don’t like honey you might still like this.”
This (Cacao Honey) is one for people who want to take a chance on something different, or those who just want an alternative to toffee sauce. It is genuinely interesting. If you did a blind tasting you might not even guess it is honey. It will be a marmite product for many people.”
Great Taste, the world’s most trusted food and drink awards are organised annually by the Guild of Fine Food. Specialist judges are enlisted from all over the world and the winners are chosen through a series of blind tasting and ratings.
It has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world and the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Booker prize’. Simply put, the Great Taste logo is the sign you can trust when buying food and drink in your local, quality retailer.
