This is a less expensive way to order locust honey, but the apple and cherry blossoms seem to add sweetness, not flavor. It doesn't taste like apple or cherry to me, or anything floral--I know blossoms don't taste like fruit but still.... The result is a good sweetener for strong tea but not something to put on a bland biscuit. If you want locust honey, buy the small quantities of the pure stuff they had available this year rather than this 6 pound container. Also, I wish they would use glass jars. With plastic milk jug containers, half the honey stays stuck to the sides and won't come out the small hole in the top. Good luck getting it out with a knife; a spoon won't fit. The secret for using the knife is to use a sharp one: cut the entire top half off the container once you've used up half the honey. Good luck avoiding getting slivers of plastic in the rest of the honey while cutting. Yum! This time I just poured it all into a 1/2 gallon glass jar left from another brand of honey before it crystallized and became nearly impossible to pour.

Reply from eBeeHoney Claude, sorry to hear you did not like this honey. It is a very mellow tasting honey as is Locust Honey. If you want stronger tasting honeys we would suggest raw wildflower or even raw buckwheat honey.
As far as shipping large glass containers, years ago we did and the damage irregardless of how much bubble wrap, paper, peanuts that we used the carriers still managed to break over 20% of orders shipped. Plus none of the carriers cover glass breakage and then the cost of cleanup of honey spills was crazy. So we switched to plastic containers and since that time the damage percentage is under .05%. We fill all orders just prior to shipment so your honey has not been sitting around for weeks or months on end, so we take every measure to make sure the honey is excellent.
Sorry again you did not like the honey, but that is the beauty of honey as there are hundreds of varieties and they all taste different - some you will enjoy while others not as much.
