Delicious Living’s inaugural “Best Bite” award results are in, and products containing honey were named as finalists in four categories.
Natural retailers, manufacturers and consumers were asked to share their delicious picks, and after an exhaustive product taste test, Delicious Living chose the winners. Specialty diet categories served a particular focus in the contest, ranging from gluten-free to vegan.
Best Breakthrough Brand
Love Grown Foods’ line of oat clusters has emerged as a breakthrough snacking performer in 2013 according to Delicious Living. The entire line of oat clusters includes honey.
Best New Product
Green Valley Organics Lactose Free Sour Cream’s line of yogurt includes a lactose-free wildflower honey variety. It’s made with 100% organic farm fresh milk and has a creamy texture.
Best Single Ingredient Use
Henry’s Humdingers Spicy Honey line features Grumpy Grandpa, Naughty Nana, Phoebe’s Fireball and Diabolical Dad. A portion of all sales goes to the preservation of honey bees.
Best Gluten-Free Cereal
Barbara’s Honey Rice Puffins are named after an employee who fell in love with Puffin birds on an Alaskan trip. Sweetened with honey, this gluten-free cereal made it to the finals of Delicious Living’s list.
