The best honey ever! Ready for more and the prices are unbelievable. Comment by Angelica on the Smiley Honey Facebook page (June 2015).
I just tried four different honeys from your company. I was amazed at the value and quality for the price. The Holly honey was superb. It had an unexpectedly bright flavor that bursts a floral perfume scent on your tongue, then unfolds more complex flavors to quick to chase. You taste more and more but you can never quite catch them all. The Sourwood is subtle with a mellow flavor gradually producing a stronger rich caramel undertone from underneath the initial woodsy spice. The Tupelo with honeycomb had a thick, somewhat waxy texture with a nice flavor, though not as complex or surprising as the first two. The Orange crème had a smooth, creamy texture with a sweet orange flavor that lingered for a while. As an amateur connoisseur I may have 30 or more honeys from all over the United States and other countries at any time. I think that, for the price, the Holly and Sourwood rival most that I’ve had in Greece and Sicily, and although very different from the New Zealand and Middle Eastern honeys, are no less pleasing on the tongue. Thank you so much for your great prices and amazingly honey. You have a new fan in California! Mary in California (April 2015).
Just a short note to let you know your wildflower honey has not only helped my sister's allergies, but also our dog's allergies. We all eat some every morning and the dog would fight you for it I think. Thanks for a great product and thank your bees as well. Larry in Florida (April 2015).
Ordered Tupelo honey a couple days ago and received it today. These people are very easy to work with, and what they say they will do. The honey tastes delicious! I will buy from them again! Marilyn in North Carolina (March 2015)
I just bought my first little Smiley bear of your honey. I am 72 years young. It is the best honey I have every had. Thank you for making my day brighter. Juanita in Wisconsin (March 2015)
I grew up in Florida, half my life not too far from the Apalachicola River. Now that I live in Hawaii, I really appreciate Smiley Honey being there so I can still order tupelo honey. Once you've tasted tupelo, it's hard to compare any other honey to it! Thanks again Smiley Honey! Wayne in Hawaii (February 2015).
Thanks for shipping my honey order so fast. Your honey is the best in the world! Renee in Nevada (January 2015).
I received my replacement honey [the first shipment was damaged by UPS] in perfect condition on Wednesday.Yeah!! It is DELICIOUS! An excellent Tupelo honey and I have tasted a lot of it in my years.Your grateful and sweetly satisfied customer. Rush in Georgia (September 2014).
I am visiting Cape San Blas for the week and came across your site. I called as suggested and was pleased with Shirley answered and said, "I'm here, come on over." She took the time to share the operations facility and we sure learned a lot. It got better when we began the tasting session - YUM. We bought a jar of every type of honey available and some honey hand cream. Don't miss the opportunity to visit Smiley Honey. Dave (September 2014).
Thank you so very much. The honey arrived in time for my travels. My friends in Santa Fe will be delighted with the honey of honeys - the best in the world! Mary in Florida (August 2014).
I order a lot of honey and have customers in my business from all over the world that say it is the best they have ever had. My Australian and South African customers like it the best! Thanks for a great product and service! Ron in Georgia (July 2014).
Just wanted to say that I stopped by The Donut Hole [Destin, FL] this past weekend and tried some of your honey that was sitting out on a table. I was blown away; I had never tasted honey like this before. I will be ordering your honey and having it shipped instead of getting anything else from the grocery store. Thanks for making such a great product. Jesse in Tennessee (March 2014).
I have to admit that I originally placed the order for sentimental reasons. Our wedding song was "Tupelo Honey" and I just had to try it. I was very surprised and pleased with the flavor of the honey. It does not even compare to any of the store bought brands. Thank you Van Morrison & Smiley Honey :) Virginia in California (March 2014).
This is my 2nd time ordering honey with y'all and I have to say this is THE BEST honey I have ever had in my entire life (and my grandfather kept bees)! Thank you so much for having such amazing honey . . . never go away. Gretchen in Texas (February 2014).
For the love of all things delicious! I just got my first taste of Tupelo Honey! Now I know what the buzzz is all about. You'll be hearing more from me, I'm sure. Linda via Facebook (January 2014).
Received my Smiley Sampler of honey today, first time I have ever tasted Tupelo honey; it was instant love. I loved them all, Tupelo, Orange Blossom, Holly and Wildflower -- simply amazing! My family did a blind taste test and the Tupelo won hands down. It was fun. We compared it to some store bought honey we bought at a local market. No comparison! Your honey was superior in flavor and richness! Yummy! I felt like Pooh Bear! Thank you for your prompt delivery and excellent customer service and wonderful prices. Jorge in Nevada (January 2014).
My mouth is watering just thinking about your tupelo honey. James in West Virginia (January 2014).
Your tupelo honey is the best I've ever had and my wife loves the orange blossom honey. Tim in Tennessee (January 2014).
This past October, we visited your area for the first time. During a fishing/boat tour of Apalachicola Bay and the surrounding waterways, our captain, Jimmy Maxwell introduced us to TUPELO HONEY. We purchased family gifts while visiting and now are all hooked on Tupelo Honey . . . hook, line and sinker! M-m-m Good. Cindy in California (December 2013).
Yours is as good as honey gets. It was luck that led us to Smiley Apiaries the first time. Now it's product loyalty bringing us back. Thank you again for your wonderful honey. Bert & Mathilde in Arizona (November 2013).
The ONLY company I have bought honey from for years. Absolutely the best! Debra in California (December 2012).
There may be better honey than your tupelo somewhere on this earth, but we've never found it. William in Minnesota (June 2013).
We vacationed in Indian Pass this summer and bought some of your honey at a bookstore in Port St. Joe. It is delicious. We are buying more for us and a bottle for my grandfather for Christmas. He thought it was among the best honey he had ever had.Thanks and Happy Holidays. Amy in Kentucky (November 2013).
This is the best honey I have ever tasted. I gave up sugar in my tea and now only use your honey. I have COPD and my throat gets irritated because of the inhaler I must use. Since I have replaced sugar with tupelo honey, my throat is soothed and hardly irritated at all. Tupelo Honey is truly one of life's pleasures. Thank You. Deborah in New Jersey (January 2013).
I read "Robbing the Bees" some time ago and have placed several orders since that time. I am always delighted with the honey and have given it as gifts to very grateful friends. Smiley Apiaries is to be congratulated for the "top shelf" honey it produces and the wonderful service provided. MANY THANKS. Margaret in Massachusetts (July 2013).
I tasted this honey from someone who thinks this is food from the Gods . . . and wow he was right! Dania in South Dakota (April 2013).
I take tupelo honey every day for allergies and have not sneezed from hay fever or been unable to breathe for a couple of years! Plus it just tastes so good! I have turned my sisters into users and have told many friends about it. Cynthia in Mississippi (May 2013).
I bought some in Tupelo, Mississippi and fell in love with it. I had no idea at the time that it really comes from Florida. Brought bottles home to my friends and they all love it. Joyce in Illinois (February 2013).
I purchased two 3 lb. bottles of your excellent Tupelo Honey a few months ago, and have recommended it to everyone I know. It is absolutely amazing, so delicious and fresh. Thank you so much for the pleasure we have had eating it! Sarah in New York.
We love your Tupelo Honey! Our neighbor brought us some from a trip back east and no other honey will do now. Joan in California.
First tried your Honey at the Tupelo Honey Cafe in Ashville. I love honey and this was the best I've ever had. Can't wait to share it with friends and family. Gene in Indiana.
I've purchased your Tupelo honey before, and absolutely loved it! Wonderful product! Needed to purchase a larger quantity this time. Rebecca in Wisconsin.
Your honey is AWESOME!! I Love it. It is the best honey I have ever had. I use it in tea on fruit or just pile it on a spoon and eat it. Thanks for your dedication to do the very best at what you do!!! Michael in California.
I've ordered from you before. Best honey I've ever tasted. Both my daughter and I love it straight from the jar! Carol in Tennessee.
I wanted to thank you for this (and previous) orders. I have started using the honey to replace sugar in many of my recipes, give to friends and family as a special gift, and, because it doesn't crystallize, as an emergency food source. But most of all I love the taste! This is by far the best honey I have ever had. Please keep up the good work! Scott in Ohio.
