In honour of the Easter Bunny’s big debut tomorrow, I thought I would share a delicious new product that not only is gluten free, but also organic and sweetened naturally with honey, enter: Honey Bunny
Honey Bunny is a Canadian product founded by Gilbert and Sharon Wolfe from Guy, Alberta. Their stand-up, pouch containers with corner pour spouts are innovative with no mess. What’s neat about these recyclable pouches is that one truck load of empty pouches is equivalent to 25 truckloads of jars – what a perfect shatter-free alternative!
It’s really tough to find a good gluten free BBQ sauce, but Honey Bunny nailed it. I love the fact that all of their products are naturally sweetened, made of organic ingredients and do not contain any artificial preservatives. I love the branding of the product and the graphics are really cute. It makes it a fun sauce that you would want your guests to see at a summer BBQ. It also makes a super healthy sauce that you would feel comfortable serving your family.
Amazing Dad’s BBQ Sauce:
It’s great on meat…just like the pouch says (“meat is good, meat is good, meat is good”). The ingredient list is as follows: organic honey, water, organic tomato paste, organic vinegar, salt, organic corn starch, liquid smoke, organic garlic, organic onion powder, natural colour, organic spice and xanthan. It has a great balance of flavours: sweetness from the honey, sour from the vinegar, smokey from the obvious liquid smoke and spicy. It makes a great sauce on ribs, chicken or steak and it also makes a great dip for potatoes.
Amazing Dad’s Honey Garlic BBQ Sauce
: This variety is more on the sweeter side – probably due to the combination of sugar and honey. The ingredients include: organic honey, water, organic sugar, organic vegetarian chicken flavoured broth powder, organic vinegar, organic cornstarch, organic garlic, salt, xanthan gum and natural colour. This isn’t is great for dipping as the Original BBQ, but it makes a good sauce on BBQ-ed chicken thighs or chicken breasts.
Organic Bodacious Tomato Ketchup:
ketchup. I love it on (gf) mac & cheese, as a dip for french fries and the occasional potato, with chicken (sometimes even steak…gasp
) and of course on my BLT. The downside to loving ketchup that much is the fact that what you think may be healthy is actually not so healthy – as most ketchups are loaded with sugar and don’t even really taste like tomatoes. The best thing about Honey Bunny’s Ketchup is that it actually tastes like tomatoes with a hint of honey sweetness. There is no added sugar and it reminds me of a watered down tomato paste. The ingredients include: water, organic tomato paste, organic honey, organic vinegar, salt, organic onion powder, organic garlic powder, organic spices and natural flavour.
Honey Bunny also carries creamed and liquid honey in pouches, jars and pails; bee pollen and lip balm. I love their Buzz Balm
. It is very light weight, not sticky, soft and it smells wonderful. I have the Tangerine Lime which smells more limey than citrusy and the Green Tea Ginger, which has a very distinct ginger scent. Both balms have an underlying beeswax scent to them and the ingredient list is short and simple (including: sunflower seed oil, beeswax, jojoba seed oil, coconut oil and the corresponding flavours and scents).
I am so impressed by this gluten free line of quality sauces, honey and beeswax. I think the easy to pour pouch is such a unique way of presenting a product and the fact that what’s in the pouch is delicious is a bonus. I would highly recommend checking out their list of retailers and I personally am eager to try more of their great product – including the Honey Lemon Rosemary BBQ Sauce and Organic Creamed Honey.
Now get out their and start up the BBQ!
Happy Easter fellow foodies!
