“ Brand: Rowse / Type: Honey „
I've had this in the cupboard for a while so decided to share my thoughts on it....
The honey comes in glass jar with a green screw top. Most of the jar is taken up with the label which is predominantly yellow in colour although there is a small red banner at the top proclaiming "Save The Honey Bee". There is no nutritional information listed on the label nor anything to state the provenance on the honeys used beyond the fact that this product is a blend of EC and Non-EC honeys.
There is some information about the honey bee and how the numbers of it have declined in recent years along with the website address which is:- www.rowsehoney.co.uk
I paid the sum of 99p for a jar of this at my local corner shop.
Taste and Opinion:
Opening the jar for the first time I can see a lovely clear golden yellow honey. That "honey smell" you get when you open a jar (I'm not even going to attempt to describe what it smell like) is present and correct but is in no way overpowering.
The honey itself is fairy thick and looks fairly similar to golden syrup. However, if you tip the jar slightly or dip a spoon or knife into the honey you soon discover that this is a little runnier than most golden syrups on the market. That's not to say that it's very runny, because it's not, just that you won't have any problem at all spreading this on toast or bread or anything else that you care to put it on.
There is a slight taste to this honey and, to be honest, I'm not quite sure what it is. It's not strong enough to state that it's got a fruity taste or a flowery taste so if you're the sort of person who doesn't like strongly flavoured things this should present no problems for you at all.
Overall this is a great tasty, everyday honey that I'd be happy to recommend to anyone. Honey itself is fat free, cholesterol free and contains less calories than sugar so it's a great product to add to cereals, tea, coffee and loads of other foodstuffs. The Rowse website listed above has lots of information about its brands and honey in general (including some recipes) and is well worth a visit.
