    Default flavor ranges in honey

    WE have been selling a lot of local pollen in honey, and frankly have more customers than supply. so I have been pondering buying some differnt types in bulk, and selling assortments...
    Wondering if I can get some comments or suggestions
    my thoughts are Orange blossom, from Fla
    Starthistle from east coast
    Buckwheat Dakotas
    Clover Oh area

    Are these flavors different enough to notice by average consumers???

    Most people I know of who are buying pollen are actually looking for local pollen for allergy treatments. They aren't looking for flavor...

    Ditto to MB's answer for the pollen aspect, but to answer your question, Yes they are. I sell as many varietal honeys as I can make, and have been known to bottle others from other areas for my customers who like variety. They all sell well.

    Understood, I am looking to expand the lines..... Give customers options as we can't produce enough. We have also had some request. so what I am looking for as 3-4 varities that I can buy in drum quanties, and that customers can actully see/ taste the differences.
