When buying participating products made with honey, you’re supporting beekeepers’ ability to keep healthy bees. By doing so, you’re helping maintain a balance between pollinators and our planet’s entire ecosystem.
Honey plays a large role across Justin’s expanding product line. It provides sweetness to the company’s Honey Almond Butter as well as showcases the symbiotic relationship honey bees have with food. Almonds require honey bee pollination, so it only makes sense to pair almond butter with honey to showcase how buying products made with honey helps honey bees and beekeepers.

Since 2004, the company has baked organic, gluten-free, non-GMO crackers from its Reno, Nevada-based factory.

Sprecher was Milwaukee’s first craft brewery founded after prohibition, and Randy Sprecher brought his love for European craft-style beers to the States after a time in Germany. Sprecher’s brand is on quality, craft ingredients that the entire family can drink, which is where Sprecher’s soda line came to be. Sweetened with honey, Sprecher’s famed Root Beer was the first, and it’s a product that makes the customer take a gulp and say “Oh it’s so good!” It hits differently than mass produced sodas, and it’s a high-quality Craft Root Beer due to the attention to detail, attention to craft and ingredients like locally-sourced honey.
We can’t resist Fizzy Black Tea Lemon Raw Honey from TEAKOE, a former Queen’s Choice Award winner. Multiple teas from this company are made with honey, and this variety is downright unique, from the cold brew concept to the organic black tea and fizzy nature intertwined in a better-for-you sweetener (honey of course). TEAKOE showcases the health benefits of tea in conjunction with flavor profiles, adding in a fun experience with the fizzy component. What is TEAKOE? A traditional tea? A sparkling water? A craft soda? It’s a little of all of the above, using honey to improve the flavor profile and to leave the planet a little better than from where we came.
