Does Honeycomb Taste Good?
Eating honeycomb is delicious! In NZ, honeycomb is eaten as one of the purest forms of raw honey. Compared to processed honey, you will immediately notice the difference in taste, and its delicate, flaky texture. As you savour this delectable treat, it will become chewy and packed full of flavour. Many honeycomb lovers have likened the rich, bittersweet taste to a well-balanced burnt caramel.
What is honeycomb?
Worker honeybees craft the internal structure of their hives by using their legs and mouths to mould the soft beeswax pieces into hexagonal cells. These ‘honeycomb’ cells are used to store nectar and pollen, which the bees then convert to honey.
Benefits of Eating Raw Honeycomb
NZ’s raw honey is known for its medicinal and therapeutic properties. Packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and essential carbohydrates, raw honeycomb is a nutritional powerhouse that can possibly help to fight free radicals that contribute to ageing and heart disease.
Honeycomb and Heart Health
Honeycomb can help to reduce cholesterol levels and improve blood flow to the heart, potentially decreasing your risk of coronary artery disease.
Immune System Benefits
The antimicrobial and antibacterial properties of NZ honeycomb help to promote the good bacteria in the intestine. Probiotic bacteria are essential in helping to support your immunity to fight against diet-related and chronic diseases.
Health issues such as gallstones, inflammation, tumours and high blood-sugar levels can contribute to liver damage. Consumption of raw honey with a balanced diet can help to strengthen liver tissue and promote regeneration, helping to prevent liver damage.

Directions & Usage
How do you eat a raw honeycomb? There’s no wrong way!
Layer a comb of honey on a baguette, or to add flavour to toast, scones or pancakes. Cut into bite-sized pieces and include it on a platter of deli meats and cheeses.
Honeycomb is best kept fresh in an airtight container at room temperature.
With a deceptively light texture, this honeycomb packs a punch. Less sweet style honey with strong herbaceous and bitter flavours reminiscent of burnt toffee followed by a mellow chewy background flavour.
Directions and usage
Simply cut, drizzle, and eat – that’s right you can eat the honey and the waxy comb. The perfect addition to a cheese board or antipasto platter.
Lovely with oat or ginger flavoured baking, cereal or porridge or swirled through yoghurt. The bitterness of the honey works well with creamy blue cheese and quince paste.
