C C Pollen High Desert Bee Pollen Granules Bag -- 1 lb
Doesn't live up to marketing hype
This was the first bee pollen product I've ever purchased. I decided on this product after reading, and believing, their marketing hype and reviews. Firstly, it did not come shipped with an ice pack. Secondly, it is not soft, and thirdly, it is quite bitter.
Initially, I'd nothing which to compare it. So, I purchased another brand also making similar claims. That brand did arrive with an ice pack, is soft and creamy, and sweet. Not bitter at all.
I will use up all of this bag in my smoothies, as I don't really taste it that way, but for those times when I want to add bee pollen to yogurt, oatmeal...even ice cream or eat it right off the spoon..I will continue to use and will reorder the other brand.

Everyone rates this as 5 star pollen but I found it to be ok, but dry, kind of hard and with a slight bitter taste. Very chewy and only somewhat hard granules. Came in a cool pack and states always refrigerated. Maybe this is how this pollen is. I have been used to soft almost fluffy fresh bee pollen from a few other sources. Maybe I received a bad batch.

This bee pollen is easily one of the best brands on the market.

High quality product
This is the best bee pollen on the market. Vitacost shipped it so well with insulation and an ice pack -- I couldn't believe it! Highly recommend buying this product from this vendor.
