Customers periodically ask whether there are any additives in our honey. The answer is ABSOLUTELY NOT. We sell 100% pure, raw, natural honey -- exactly as the bees made it. We do not blend our honey, nor do we add anything to the honey. It is as close as you can come to reaching into a beehive and scooping out the honey yourself. In addition, we know all of our beekeeping partners personally, and we require beekeeper certification regarding the purity of all honey delivered to us. We take pride in offering the best natural, raw honey available anywhere. Our good reputation at Smiley Honey is paramount, and we work very hard to earn it every day.
Unfortunately, not all businesses have such high standards.
