Frequently asked Questions
Yes, honeycomb is entirely edible and just one simple ingredient! You’ll notice the wax acts as a natural chewing gum, which is also entirely edible and we encourage its consumption for its elevated health properties (not too much though). For those of you that dislike the wax in your beverage, added with your favorite foods it’s barely noticeable.
You can eat honeycomb multiple different ways! Some of our favorites are on toast, in yogurt, in our tea, and even raw! Any wax residue left in your warm beverages (or in your mouth) can be consumed or rinsed out with warm water.
There’s too many to count so we’ve compiled a list for you!
There are extensive research studies related to honeycombs’ various benefits including the brain’s ability to process thought and make decisions. Here is a partial list of research we find fascinating:

We source the cleanest comb in the world to ensure the highest integrity and fullest benefits from our honeycomb. Unfortunately, nearly 80% of honey is fraudulent -- exposed to pesticides and/or blended with other syrups. By sourcing honeycomb globally and from multi-generational beekeepers, we can maintain our quality with confidence. This effort does not translate to commodity prices.
Our single-serve honeycombs average 25g. Note, as with any natural product, there are variances in size, shape and color.
Honeycomb is delicate and we've found the rough handling of overnight shipments breaks the comb and fails to meet our standards. We want consumers to experience the fullest experience of unaltered honeycomb. It took bees months to create the comb, what's a few more days?
We promise a straight-from-the-hive sweet snack, harvested and packed in its truest form (never heated, never blended) for true honey taste. However, doing business with integrity doesn’t come cheap. To continue supporting beekeepers with livable wages and combat rampant fraud in the honey industry, we need to honor our limitations. This means we can not offer free shipping. As a young company, the seemingly insignificant free shipping offer is the determining factor of losing money on every sale or eeking out a small profit. This isn’t a forever decision, but something that needs to happen to continue delivering a way for honey to stand on its own — deliciously healthy, convenient, and snack-worthy anytime.
Pass the Honey Sourcing Questions
No. Due to the unique properties of the beeswax, it’s incredibly difficult to responsibly source clean honeycomb in the U.S. (at the scale we need). However, we are working with Terra Genesis International to develop both a domestic and global supply chain that is regenerative and benefits multiple stakeholders -- the bees being first and foremost.
Our hives are located in Turkey. Far from any industrial areas, this flourishing land is chemical and fertilizer free, making it a bee’s paradise.
We use several types of hive structures, including: Langstroth, Waare, Top-bar, and Flow Hive.
Turkish beekeepers typically use Caucasian Bees, which are known to be the strongest bee species!
During honey harvest season, samples of honey are taken from each beekeeper and brought to an accredited laboratory and analyzed in order to ensure that:
Yes, each beekeeper is paid fairly and offered various trainings conducted by the Turkish Association of Beekeepers.
Responsibly. Pass the Honey is creating a supply system that will generate long-lasting improvements to the vitality of honey bees, beekeepers, farmers, and consumers, by reducing everyday stressors placed on the system.
The Pass the Honey supply system is a dedicated honeycomb inspection system which allows beekeepers to focus on maintaining healthy hives and ensures quality control. Having a single location creates security through repetition and provides job insurance to beekeepers.
