Different Types of Honey

Bees make honey from flower nectar, so different flowers naturally give different flavors to the honey you keep on your shelf. More than 300 unique types of honey have been identified, but Sue Bee® honey – which tests and blends honey in a state-of-the-art laboratory – makes it easy for you by offering variety, including Aunt Sue’s®. If you’re a fan of nature’s sweetener, you owe it to yourself to try each one!

Sue Bee® Clover Honey has always been the most popular kind, derived from white and yellow sweet clovers, then filtered and blended to have the light color and delicate flavor that most of us know as honey. Packaged in several sizes and styles (the bear and no-drip table servers are favorites), clover honey is our flagship.

Aunt Sue’s® Raw & Unfiltered Honey is honey from the nectar of wildflowers, so it’s darker in color and has an all-natural, robust flavor. It’s also unfiltered, so the pollen adds to the authenticity. Try this when you’re baking hearty bran muffins or granola bars for a full-bodied taste. When you’re glazing a meat dish, the darker color provides a richer caramelized appearance.

Sue Bee® Spun® Honey is pure, filtered clover honey – like the flagship variety – that has been allowed to granulate under controlled conditions. The result is a smooth, easy-to-spread texture that goes on toast like butter or jelly, without dripping or drizzling. It’s a breakfast favorite. If you’re a believer in applying honey to minor nicks and scrapes – honey keeps bacteria out and moisture in – Sue Bee® Spun® Honey is more convenient to use than the liquid form.
