About the Pollen

Step aside, caramel sauce! We've salted our raw Chestnut Honey, and your ice cream is never going to be the same.

Tasting reminiscent of a salted caramel, this infused honey is delicious and unexpected. We think it takes our somewhat polarizing Italian Chestnut Honey (revered and reviled in equal measure for its smokey, leathery, almost bitter character) and creates a whole new flavor that will appeal to just about everyone.

We mentioned that Chestnut Honey can be perceived as bitter, but did you know that adding salt to bitter foods (or your over-steeped tea!), makes them more palatable and even brings out the sweet?

Our tongues only detect 5 flavors: bitter, sweet, salty, sour, and umami. When you add salt to something bitter, the sodium ions bind to our salty receptors and inhibit our perception of bitterness, balancing out the flavors. Pretty cool, huh?

Try this salted honey over ice cream, in lattes, or on its own by the spoonful!
