wild mountain brand honey

  • j

I'm a bereft ex-bay area person; i became addicted to wild mountain brand honey, which as far as I can tell is from Oakland and isn't available outside the Bay Area. Does anyone have an email address, web site, or phone number on the makers?

    1. I don't think it taste any good anymore, but here's the info:

        This honey is like no real honey I've ever tasted. Are you sure you want it? Tastes to me like molasses and it sure doesn't seem act like real honey. The low price is kind of a giveaway as well. Made in Thailand or Vietnam or Ukraine (check the tiny print on bottom of label).
        Good luck.

          1. Nooo! Look closer, Cole's is a BLEND with Asian honeys! I cannot believe this is BLENDED honey with product from THAILAND AND VIETNAM. I feel like an idiot for purchasing this and thinking that I was helping small business.

              That makes two idiots. I thought it was sourced from northern CA, but then I also read the fine print and discovered Asia was included, but no percentages. So it could be 1% local and 99% Asia. (Note to self: always read fine print)
