Vitacost Raw & Unfiltered Honey - Non-GMO -- 24 oz (680 g)
Can't get it out of the silly bottle!
I ended up wasting a lot of this because I couldn't get it out of the silly bottle it's in! What were they thinking when they made the consistency so thick, yet the opening so small?? I used a knife to try and get out small amounts at a time. Maybe I was burning the calories the honey would add but I'd like a little less hassle and a LOT MORE honey!!
Don't waste your time and money... buy a honey that you can actually get out!

Was not what I expected as could not be poured.
I don't doubt but what this is good for you but I was surprised that the consistency was very thick and has to be removed from the jar by a knife or other thin, long handled instrument. It had a grainy consistency that I didn't expect.

Amazing Flavor, Difficult to Extract
This honey is absolutely amazing. The flavor is intense, complex, and ten times better than the average bottle of honey at a grocery store. The product actually deserves 5 stars, but I give it 4 due to a single complaint that pertains to the packaging more than the product itself. My issue with it is that the honey is very difficult to extract from the bottle. There is a tiny squeeze hole in the lid, but since the honey had completely crystallized before it arrived at my door, there was no chance of using it like a squeeze bottle. I attempted to soften the honey in a dish of warm water, which helped significantly, but it was still not quite squeezable. When I took the lid off to scoop out the softened honey, I realized that none of my spoons fit into the open top, not even the small tea spoons I have. In the end, I had to use a knife to scrape the honey out of the bottle every time I wanted to use some, and even so, I had to soften the honey bottle repeatedly in warm water so that the knife could actually separate it (otherwise it was a solid chunk). Purely because of the inconvenience factor, I probably will not buy this honey again, but the flavor is incredible and if you do not mind spending several minutes retrieving your honey each time you want a few drops for your tea or oatmeal, then I would highly recommend this product.

There are better products out there
This honey crystallizes too quick and is hard to dispense... I will be buying Rice's from now on...

Do Not Buy!!
I read the reviews about it smelling like manure, and thought they were crazy. Well I had used this in baking and wondered why every batch tasted "off" until I decided to use some in my tea. Gross! It DOES smell like manure, and if you taste it off the spoon, it is initially sweet, but there is some kind of aftertaste that ruins everything. Definitely something wrong. Unfortunately I reordered the large size before I realized, so I guess I'll have to test that too...
