I had purchased the wildflower honey in the past and since I liked the taste so much, I purchased two 5-pound containers this time. The picture on the website shows it as a nice dark color as I was used to. The container arrived and I was very disappointed that not only was the honey very light in color but also just sweet, not having the aromatic taste that I had expected. And of course it cannot be returned. I find it disappointing that the picture is misleading. In the future I would appreciate, if there was a description of taste and color of the honey as it is sold in this particular year. That way customers can make an informed choice or ask.
Reply: Patricia - crystallized honey is ALWAYS lighter than the liquid form - if you want to see - simply heat the honey a bit and you'll notice how dark it becomes when it is liquid. Crystallized picture is posted - also wildflower honey changes every year and then also can be different from various bee yards in the same year. That's why it's called wildflower - comes from a variety of floral sources and not single source (ie goldenrod) It's also been 2.5 years since you bought from us so it will not be the same, but it is excellent honey.
