Yad Mordechai's Flavored Honey for Kids

יד מרדכי דבש לילדים
Yad Mordechai has a new line of honey being marketed as a "children's honey". There are 3 flavored honeys in this new line; strawberry, vanilla and wild flowers. Of the three flavors the vanilla one seemed the most interesting to me, so that’s the one I tried.

This new line of Yad Mordechai honey comes in small squeeze bottles. I know this sort of bottle is not new to the honey industry but I thought this one worked very well and didn't make a mess at all. That’s a plus in my book.

I also liked the colorful cute bee drawing on the packaging but aside from the packaging I'm not sure why they're calling this a children's line of honey? The press release claims they chose flavors that kids really like so it can use it as a heartier sweeten for children's snacks and foods. I sort of think vanilla and wild flowers are flavors that adults enjoy more than children but I may be wrong on that I don’t know. In any case I won't get too caught up in the name of the line instead I'll focus on the taste of product itself.

Since I enjoyed the Kolios's Today 3% Greek Yogurt with Honey I decided to taste this Yad Mordechai Vanilla Flavored Honey in a plain yogurt. I thought the honey worked very well in the yogurt and the touch of vanilla added a nice extra layer that I enjoyed. I should say the vanilla was very understated I did notice it but it wasn't "in your face" at all, I liked that.
I also tasted this honey on its own and with some Challa. As with the yogurt, in both these cases I enjoyed the honey and thought the vanilla was a welcomed extra tough. I'd say the honey itself was a lighter honey than Yad Mordechai classic honey and I enjoyed that too.

Bottom Line: I don’t think this is a children's honey/product per se. I think adults will enjoy it more than children but many kids may like it too. I liked that it’s a somewhat lighter honey and thought the vanilla flavor added a nice element to whatever I ate this honey with but at 15.79 NIS for 250 grams I think it's overpriced. On a regular basis I can't see myself paying that price for a non-organic Yad Mordechai honey, flavored or otherwise.

Update: I found a coupon for these Yad Mordechai Flavored Honeys for Kids. It’s a 50% off coupon for any of the 3 flavored honeys. It can be used at most major supermarkets except Mega Bool, Shefa Shook and Yesh.
It expires 31/7/12.

  1. the flavor definitely sounds nice and the bottle is adorable. but i hope it has a disclaimer on it not to give to children under age one...

  2. Thanks for pointing out regarding the warning not to give honey to kids under age one. I don't see a disclaimer on the bottle so thanks for letting me know so who ever reads this post will know to be careful about that. Its kind of irresponsible of Yad Mordechai not to write that on a honey bottle marketed toward kids.
