HoneyKist® Gourmet Flavoured Honey – 100% Jamaican
Posted on May 3, 2013 by Stephen Charoo
I am a happy camper! My very own package of assorted flavoured gourmet honey is here from HoneyKist Jamaica. If you haven’t at least heard of them then you totally live under a rock because these are a big hit and should be part of any foodie’s pantry.

"It is raw honey infused with locally produced products."...
