Canadian Raw Organic Honey Giveaway



I love honey! I think most people do, but the thing I don't like is the sticky, drippy mess. Did you ever hear of a honey that doesn't drip AND is full of flavor? Add to that a honey that is USDA Certified Organic.  I didn't know there was such a thing.  How do you control bee activity?

First of all, organic honey is only found a few places in the world now because bees will travel up to 4 miles from their hives, and if fertilized plants are nearby, they will find the flowers, going about their pollinating business.  In the wild frontiers of Canada, away from any farms that use fertilizer, Tropical Traditions harvests their exclusive brand called Honey Traditions. It is truly a raw honey, and is only harvested for a six-week period in summer after the bees have pollinated the wild vegetation that surrounds the area.

Be prepared for a new taste sensation because this honey is unprocessed, and wild. The only heat that comes near it is equal to the temperatures inside the hive. Because of that, there are pollens and fine crystals present, and the texture is similar to a soft margarine; therefore no drips!

I like to use it on  warm English muffins in the morning.  I also add some to my tea; it's so comforting on a cold winter day.   This weekend I made a celery seed salad dressing with honey (I'll post that recipe soon.)  So use it as you normally would, but be ready for a burst of flavor, while you have the well-being of knowing that you are doing something good for your family and yourself.

Tropical Traditions is offering you a chance to try this fantastic organic Canadian  Raw Honey.  Here's how you can win a 17.6 oz jar:

 1. Leave a comment after visiting the Tropical Traditions web site, about what your favorite product would be, or how you would use this honey.

2. For a second chance to win, sign up as an e-mail subscriber with Feedburner, Feed Blitz, or become a Google Follower (see sidebar.) Then leave a second comment telling me you have subscribed or that you are already a subscriber.

3. For a third chance to win, blog or Tweet about this contest with a link here, then come back and leave another comment telling me about it.

4. For a fourth chance to win, subscribe to the Tropical Traditions email sales newsletter, then come back and tell me that you have done that.

If you subscribe in more than one way, leave a separate comment for each.

5. If you're not a blogger, be sure to leave your contact e-mail address like this to avoid spammers: pianananna(at)gmail(dot)com. If I don't have a way to reach you or you don't respond in three days, your name will be disqualified, and I will choose again, picking my favorite answer.
Good Luck!!

Open to US and Canadian residents only, 18+.


Winners will be chosen by random.org.


Email addresses will not be shared with any third parties.


This Giveaway ends on .........Monday, February 1, 2010 at midnight EST.

Tropical Traditions provided me with a free sample of this product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review or sponsor a product giveaway in return for the free product.

No doubt organic honey is good for you! Processed sugar takes 3 or 4 more steps for your body to process, where as natural or fructose only takes one! Per my family doctor!
