Can you resist a real Pooh Bear Honey opportunity?

Sunday 12th Aug 2012

She was curled up on the corner of the settee in my office, quietly reading her book ‘Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree’.

11 years old with a light golden tan on her skin, hair slightly sun bleached and bright blue eyes scanning the page.

My beloved daughter was keeping Dad company on yet another drizzly day.

I had forgotten she was there as I worked, sifting through a mound of papers and journals.

Then, like the lightest birdsong, her laughter began to chirp into my conscious thought.

I looked around as she began to belly laugh, tears rolling down her face.

“I’ve just worked out who you remind me of Dad,” she said.  “You are Winnie the Pooh!”

Now I’ve been accused of being worse, mostly by her mother, however I was a little taken aback by the comparison.

“Why, dearest daughter, would you think of your Dad as an overstuffed bear?” I asked, trying hard to pull my tummy in a bit!

“I just read this bit in my book and thought it would be how your mind works,” she said. “Just you listen...” and she began to read;

"That buzzing-noise means something. If there's a buzzing noise, somebody's making a buzzing-noise, and the only reason for making a buzzing-noise that I know of is because you're a bee. ....

And the only reason for being a bee that I know of is making honey.....

And the only reason for making honey is so as I can eat it. So he began to climb the tree.”

From Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree – AA Milne

I began to see her logic.

You see for many years I have been a real sucker for honey, as well you all know.

A passion which many of you good folk also share judging by the speed which any honey I get my hands on disappears out of the shop.

Well, if you are after something a bit special I have got great news for you.

The sweet deal of the year

I have become a real fan of the honey from J Friend & Co, delighting in the flavour, the texture and the sheer indulgence factor that spreads over me every time I dip my spoon in a jar.

Pure, raw and packed with natural healthy anti-oxidants – a delight at any breakfast table.

We are very familiar with the health benefits that natural Manuka honey gives us – although I risk the wrath of the Trading Standards Agency (good morning to you all!) if I mention them!

However, did you know that there is one of the honey varieties which has an even bigger claim to anti-oxidant levels than the most potent of Manuka honeys?

The beautiful Dark Beechwood Honeydew honey – Click here for a fantastic offer

J. Friend and Co’s Beechwood Honeydew honey has much higher levels of antioxidants than most floral honeys. In a study at Lincoln University (New Zealand), Beechwood Honeydew honey had the highest levels of polyphenolics, which are one of the most significant classes of antioxidant compounds. 

Additionally, using the ABTS and ORAC testing methods for antioxidant calculations, Beechwood Honeydew honey consistently ranked near the top of 10 monofloral honey varieties tested.

Now if like me you remember ORAC as being the clear plastic box with flashing lights inside on Blake’s Seven (a classically poor Sci-Fi programme from the 1980’s if you are still lost!) I had better explain what these four letter acronyms mean.

Basically when those who promote the so-called ‘Unique Manuka Factor’ or UMF index of honey as the be-all-and-end-all of quality these are the tests that they use to establish the levels of anti-oxidants in the honey.

The results of these tests indicate that Beechwood Honeydew honey has one of the highest levels of antioxidants of all known New Zealand honeys.  

So this honey actually outscores many Manuka honeys in the UMF scale – now that can’t be bad can it?

Antioxidants deactivate free radicals which are caused by air, sunlight and pollution -  free radicals can damage cells and harm the immune system.

But this honey also has one other unique trick up its sleeve.

It is absolutely packed with oligosaccharides... eh! What is that I hear you cry!

Oligosaccharides help maintain and increase the number of good bacteria in the digestive system and reduce the amount of bad bacteria. They also help increase the absorption of calcium and magnesium and help eliminate toxins.

A feature of J. Friend and Co’s superior Organic Beechwood Honeydew honey is the naturally occurring presence of Oligosaccharides (complex carbohydrates) present in significantly greater levels than your average floral commercial honeys.

Act now for a real bargain

The reason I am making a big fuss about this honey is that I do feel a bit like Winnie the Pooh when he found his honey tree.

You see, the good people at J Friend & Co have sent me a present for a lucky few of you.

A free jar of honey could be yours – just click here to find out how to get 3 jars for the price of 2

I absolutely promise you that we only have a limited supply of this fantastic rich honey to give away on this offer so please don’t delay if you too have a ‘rumbly in your tumbly!’

From one hungry bear to many others out there - I hope you manage to get your paws sticky. 

Yours, as always
