I’ve walked by this Costco Manuka Honey plenty of times and never really given it a chance because of the price. $32 seems a little steep for honey, especially when there is organic honey for a much cheaper price directly next to it. Well I finally did a little research & learned a little bit more about Manuka Honey from Costco. This is a type of honey that is native to New Zealand (License #: 100014) & is supposed to have multiple health benefits including, but not limited to: oral health, gut health, wound healing, prevent gastric ulcers, improve digestion, treat acne & aid in wound healing. I need to do a little more research before I take the $32 plunge, but I’d love to hear from those of you who are manuka honey buyers.

Comvita has been around since 1974. Per the back of the package: “Comvita Certified UMF Manuka Honey comes from the Manuka plant, which flowers just two to six weeks per year.
