Bee Sweet with Nektar Honey Crystals {GIVEAWAY}

BEE SWEET WITH NEKTAR HONEY CRYSTALSIt’s so funny how a product you need finds you. In short, one of my favorite seasonings is a Honey BBQ flavored dry rub. I’m literally addicted, but it’s a limited addition, so it won’t be back anytime soon.  I was texting one of my girlfriends about how we should try to recreate the seasoning at home – but I got stuck when the ingredient list called for crystallized honey.

I literally got a little upset because I had never heard of it before and I assumed it wouldn’t be something that is easily accessible to pick up in my local grocery store. 

Like magic, a few days later – a campaign from SweatPink came to my inbox to try out Nektar Honey Crystals – aka crystallized honey. 


I was waaaaay too excited.

In the wellness world, sugar is a borderline taboo topic. However, in the normal people world where some foods just need a pinch of something sweet – it’s more than acceptable. I find myself more on the normal people side anyways. Over the past few years, I have swapped my white sugar for honey or raw brown sugar, and decreased the overall amount used.

They only thing I haven’t figured out is how not to make a mess with honey until…. Nektar Honey Crystals. The crystals can easily be poured into my favorite beverage, hot or cold, top my steel cut oats for breakfast, AND be used in dry rub recipes so I can recreate my beloved Honey BBQ Seasoning.

Overall, I’m super duper excited AND you can pick up your own bottle at your local Walmart too. So it’s easy, it’s accessible… but what does it taste like?

To me, it tastes just like honey. The crystals are all natural, non-GMO, and naturally gluten-free. I’ve used the crystals in my tea and oatmeal in the morning, and I’m in the process of perfecting the perfect Honey BBQ rub as well. 

So long sticky honey jars in the cabinet – and a big hello to my Nektar Honey Crystals… oooo, and if you comment below, you will be entered into a raffle to win your own bottle of honey crystals too! Just let me know how you’d like to use them over the holidays!

    honey crystals?! This sound really cool especially since I just used the last bit of my honey in baking. I love using it as a sweetener in baked goods!

    I would use this for baking as I tend to do a lot of it during the holidays, in tea, and in breakfasts I make for myself and my husband.

    I would try this out in tea. I agree tradition honey is a mess! What a great alternative!

  7. I am super intrigued by these. For a while now we have been trying to figure out a non messy way to have honey at our church for the congregation to have with tea and coffee (yes honey in coffee is delish and totally a thing). Until Sweat Pink started this campaign I had no clue Nektar Naturals existed. So glad I do now! My kids are forever leaving a trail of honey, looks likes slugs roam my house! My Bitty’s favorite sandwich is a honey, Pb, and banana sandwich. And my hubs eats honey in his plain yogurt. It is an everyday food in our home.

    Oh, the oatmeal is a great idea! I think I’d use it in baking too. Or maybe stirred into yogurt?

    Hi Kimberly!

    This is perfect timing – my honey just ran out! I would love to experiment with this in baking but first I would use it in hot cocoa! I really want some this season, but I’m trying to lose weight, so I’ve told myself I can’t have it.
