Review of Henry's Humdingers Raw Honey Products

Update: Henry Miller, founder of Henry's Humdinger's, announced in January 2019, that he has closed the business. You can see many of their updates on the Facebook page, including that they decided not to accept the Shark Tank offer from Mark Cuban, and that the young entrepreneur went on to attend Washington State University, even though their family suffered from illness and a devastating house fire! 

While you can no longer buy this product, the founder seems happy with the awareness the brand brought to honey bees. I'm also particularly pleased to have learned that spicy honey is a thing, and we now use spicy honey recipes in our dishes today. And the Henry Humdingers Shark Tank episode will always be one of my kids' favorite episodes; it shows them that even young people can build big things and make a difference in the world. They often dream about what what happen if Mark or Robert Herjavec picked their idea to fund! 

I first heard of Henry's Humdinger's on an episode of "Shark Tank". I thought that the idea of flavored honeys with unique ingredients would be a good fit for my family. (And I was very impressed that the company started with the hard work and vision of an 11-year-old boy!) We use honey on most anything, and we also really enjoy playing around with spices.  We were given 4 kinds of the honeys to try, and they were all very well received.

Naughty Nana is a blend of honey with spicy pepper and ginger.  It was a little peppery, and my husband and sons really enjoyed it on just about anything from bread to crackers.  I don't like spicy stuff, but I could eat this.

Diabolical Dad had habanero peppers and lime.  It was too much for me, and I wasn't sure of the lime component.  The boys ate this on tortilla chips!

Grumpy Grandma was full of spicy red pepper and garlic.  Garlic and honey are a great match, and we've used this on meats as a marinade and as a basting sauce.  It's great on chicken wings!

Phoebe's Fireball has chipotle chili and cinnamon.  This is yummy on dessert breads and tortillas.

Note that these are raw honey, so you will want to avoid feeding it to babies under 1.  (Although most babies won't appreciate the spice, anyway.)

I love that this company is an effort of a boy and his family.  If you want to support small business, innovation, and amazing flavors, I recommend buying Henry's Humdingers!  The jars are cute, as well.  They make great gifts.  (And a portion of all sales goes to help save the honeybee.)
