The new line of Honey Sprinkles™ will include retail sized bottles of 65 grams and 135 grams which will both include easy flip tops for quick dispensing. Retail bottles of Honey Sprinkles™ will be available across North America on supermarket shelves in the baking aisle. For food service, 1 kilogram bottles will be available for use by bakers and chefs alike as a new staple in every commercial kitchen.
“We are very excited to launch our Honey Sprinkles™ which will allow our company to enter new markets in the baking and ingredient categories,” stated John Rowe, President of Island Abbey Foods Ltd. “Our Honey Sprinkles™ will be ideal for a wide variety of uses which can include everything from a dessert topping for cakes and cookies to an everyday healthy replacement for refined sugar. We are thrilled to be able to offer consumers a healthy honey choice for baking and ingredients, but now in a world’s first, easy-to-use, no-mess form!”
The Honibe™ brand has garnered international attention in recent months for the product the Honey Drop™. The Honey Drop™ was the first product launched under the Honibe™ brand and is an individual serving (one teaspoon / 5 g.) of 100% pure dried honey without any additives. It is ideal for sweetening tea or coffee. Simply drop into a hot beverage and stir. You have all of the natural honey flavour without the usual honey mess. Most recently, the Honey Drop™ won two SIAL D’or Awards at the world’s largest food tradeshow in Paris, France and will now be one of nine finalists competing for best new food product in the world this fall.
