Gwyneth Paltrow recently revealed that she uses an ancient health treatment in which she is voluntarily stung by bees. Not something I would fancy, but I do appreciate bees for everything honey related. So I immediately said yes when I was offered the chance to sample some Mighty Fine Honeycomb for free.
I received a Dark Chocolate Honeycomb Bar, but the boys had their eyes on it too, so I ended up cutting into 4 pieces, so we could all have a taste.
It was delicious, a very tasty treat, but the others all said it was very similar to Crunchie apart from being coated in dark chocolate rather than milk chocolate. I can’t comment on the comparison myself as I haven’t had a Crunchie in years. But I have found out that Crunchie doesn’t actually contain honey, whilst this product does. In fact, this is all natural ingredients and handcrafted.
Pity there wasn’t some more, as I would have liked to experiment using it in a dessert recipe.
This product currently retails at £1.79 for a 50g bar and is also available in 90g and 220g gift packs. I highly recommend it. Do take a look at the range to see the other flavours.
I was also pleased to see that they donate 5% of profits to Friends of the Honey Bee, a campaign organised by the British Beekeepers Association to halt the decreasing number of Britain’s honey bees and other pollinators and build a better future for them.
The range is available to buy in-store at Harvey Nichols and at various local shops and delis, as well as online at www.mightyfine.co and www.notonthehighstreet.com.
I’d love to hear your favourite sweet treat.

They are not in the supermarkets, but if you check their store finder page, you’ll be able to find your nearest independent stockist
This bar looks sooo good, and I would love to try it! I’d never be voluntarily stung by bees – I wonder if stardom makes one a little strange – Demi Moore likes blood sucking leeches!
Me neither. And some people have quite a dangerous allergic reaction to bee stings
