Eat with your Eyes: 100% Honey

100% Honey

I’ve picked up these 100% Honey drops a couple of times now at the Japanese market. They’re beautiful and quite tasty. It’s a hard candy made of boiled honey, pretty simple. The flavor is deep and malty, much darker tasting than liquid honey. The price is usually quite right, around $3.00, which in the realm of cough drops is pretty reasonable. (Honey is supposed to be a very effective and all natural cough treatment.) Picture of the package here.

  1. I’ll bet these would be really good dropped into a cup of hot tea.  My only problem is, I’m not sure if there is any place in Louisville that would carry these.

  2. These sound wonderful and the next time I’m in the local oriental market I will look for them.

  3. I met some importers from Japan that explained to me that they use Chinese honey (and apparently they’re with glucose added to help make them into candies).  When I tried them, they don’t taste like real honey.  There’s another Japanese company that makes honey candies ( and a Canadian one ( that are 100% honey and use Japanese and Canadian honey.  Check those two out if you haven’t yet.

  4. You think that it’s just boiled honey? Because what’s left after boiling honey?
