How to Use & Consume Honeycomb
Honey comes in more forms than the go-to squeeze bottle - and thank goodness for it.
Honeycomb opens up a whole new world of potential, flavor and texture. The comb adds luxurious dimension to certain entrees and dishes you already have every day.
While conventional honey is extracted from the structured honeycomb after harvesting and processing, the comb itself is the original, raw version. So, not only is it tasty, honeycomb has many health benefits!
Before we share meal and snack ideas, find out why honeycomb adds a unique angle vs. common honey.
How to Use Honeycomb vs. Regular Honey
The main difference between honeycomb and squeeze-bottle honey is the texture.. Add honey to creamy foods, such as yogurt, ice cream or peanut butter to simply add sweetness— it blends right in. In contrast, for an extra oomph, crumbled honeycomb is a delightful way to add texture and chew to classic dishes.
It’s the difference between putting almond butter on a salad compared to sliced almonds. The slices add a lovely crunch. Almond butter would be simply awkward.
Plus, the bite of honeycomb adds true decadence. Here are some tasty ways to use honeycomb.
Honeycomb goodness, without the mess.

Stir it into coffee or tea
Rather than pour another spoonful (or half a cup…) of sweetener into your tea or coffee, try adding a cube of honeycomb and stir it round and round ‘till it melts and mixes with the hot drink.
Crumble it into salads
Okay, this may sound a little out there, but, trust us, it is fantastic. Just as you may top candied pecans on a bed of greens, try the same with crumbled honeycomb cubes. It’s especially nice when paired with chunks of soft cheese.
Add it to a sandwich
Take your turkey sandwich up a notch. Add crumbled pieces of honeycomb to the interior.
Rather than butter (or, hey, on top of butter), spread honeycomb over toast.
Add it to yogurt
Try this as an alternative to granola. Where granola tends to have a lot of added sugars, honeycomb sweet is all natural. It gives a similar texture of crunch as the granola. Remember, when selecting yogurt, go for a more plain style - such as unsweetened greek yogurt. Most yogurts have a lot of added sugar. When you add honeycomb, you get a natural sweetness that is still satisfying - but way healthier.
Kick up your ice cream
Sure, you could add chunks of cookie dough or brownie, but there’s nothing like the sweet flavor of honey. For a dessert that is just as satisfying and still sweeter yet, break up that honeycomb into small chunks and sprinkle it over your ice cream.
Serve it with a cheese platter
Take your charcuterie board to the next level. Gather an assortment of crackers and sliced baguette. Lay out your various cheeses. Add a few extra touches, like a handful of toasted almonds, dried apricots, and a bunch of grapes. Add the honeycomb directly to the board, allowing honey to pool into the nearby cheeses. Pop a bottle of red wine for an ultimate experience.
Honeycomb is especially fantastic with creamy cheeses like blue and chevre. Get ready to happy sigh. After all, is there anything much more delightful or decadent than a baguette topped with brie and honeycomb?
Incorporate into a fruit salad
Arrange fresh, sliced peaches around soft burrata cheese. Top the burrata with a hefty chunk of honeycomb to bind the fruit and creaminess together. Feel free to incorporate other seasonal fruits as well.
Things To Keep in Mind While Using Honeycomb
Honeycomb is a product of nature, which is why it’s such a great sweetener. Being natural, it can be prone to more, well, things that occur in nature. You may see pulp. You may encounter pollen. Don’t be surprised if you spot a seed or two. Do not let these factors derail your honeycomb experience. In fact, take these as a good and wonderful sign that you are putting something real and wholesome in your body.
