We been aching to keep up with all the new cool products that we been sampling and this one has been on daily rotation for the Chi Girls. Normally, we don’t mix our sweet and spicy with the exception of a Mayan Mocha now and then but when Henry’s Humdingers reached out to us, we were intrigued. Not only were the products unique, raw honeys infused with varietals of hot peppers, but they aim to help the source of honey, our bee pals! Now, if you’ve been following the news lately, you may have noticed that we have a bee crisis on our hands, which isn’t just bad for bee dudes but also for us and our food sources. Henry Miller, founder of the company, donates part of all his profits to The Foundation for the Preservation for Honey Bees to combat the mysterious Colony Collapse Disorder which is hurting our friends.
So what does Henry’s Humdingers have to offer? 4 different crazy raw honey flavas for yo tongue!
- Grumpy Grandpa Cayenne and Garlic Honey
- Phoebe’s Fireball Chipotle and Cinnamon Honey
- Naughty Nana Pepper and Ginger Honey
- Diabolical Dad Habanero Lime Honey
What to do with all these combos? Well Henry has some suggestions that range from sweet and sassy wing sauces to english muffin spreads. So far, we’ve been addicted to the Phoebe’s Fireball in our morning coffee with some sweet coconut milk stirred in. We’ve also used the Naughty Nana in rice wine vinegar to pickle veggies for Tofu Bahn Mi sandwiches.
Oh and who can forget the old standby of eating spoons of peanut butter as a snack. Our afternoons have been filled with PB honey spiced dreams.
We highly recommend Henry’s if you have a willing palate! We let some of our friends try it in tea as well and their mouths were pleasantly piqued. You can find Henry’s for purchase at J’s Vitamins in Chicago, online or at locations listed here.
Our fave is really Phoebe’s Fireball but we don’t wanna hurt the other honeys’ feelings so keep it quiet.
