    So I have some bad news, everybody: We've been eating totally wrong this ENTIRE time.


    I know, it's terrible.

    Dramatics aside, it turns out pretty much any food on earth tastes waaay better with a little bit of Mike's Hot Honey.

    That's right — honey. HOT honey!! Honey infused with chili peppers! HECK ya!!! This thing is a frequent best seller among our readers and with good reason: It's freaking delicious.

    Remember that scene in Ratatouille when Remy combines the cheese and strawberry to create a whole new flavor? It's kind of like that. Combining this honey with your favorite foods takes them to a new level and adds an extra dimension.


    Who doesn't love a good sweet and salty combo? And then the spicy kick at the end makes everything come together.

    I got a bottle of this beloved honey and proceeded to pour it on everything I ate. No regrets!!!!

    It's delicious on pizza, empanadas, tacos, burgers, chicken sandwiches, and CHEESE! This is a must for a good cheese plate.

    It's a little hot, but it's not overbearing, so it serves more to enhance flavors than to burn your mouth. Adding Mike's Hot Honey to your meal elevates it to the next level without making you feel like you're just eating a bunch of honey. It manages to blend in perfectly with whatever else you're eating. It's not honey on pizza; it's a delicious salty and sweet slice with just a little bit of heat.

    It's also great on sweet stuff! The spicy bite tastes amazing on ice cream and brownies. I also tried it in a margarita and it was awesome.

    I replaced the agave syrup with Mike's Hot Honey and then rimmed the glass with Tajin. It. Was. Amazing.

    Don't just take it from me. Read some of these rave reviews from Amazon:

    "I was a skeptic, but now I AM a believer. This mixed up honey is absolutely fabulous. I ordered three bottles more after my initial order. Why? Because it is really good on everything. And I mean EVERYTHING. Soft pretzels, toast, biscuits, waffles, cereal, yogurt, ice cream, and definitely pizza. Gives everything in your kitchen a small kick of sweet heat flavor without burning your mouth. I have told many of my friends about this magical elixir and they all agree — this is the BEST specialty honey any of us have ever had. Don’t hesitate to buy it. It is absolutely wonderful stuff. I most HIGHLY recommended!" —Jeff R. Clow

    "It's just the right amount of heat to make it interesting, but not so hot that it'll interfere with other flavors. One of my peeves about spicy versions of normally non-spicy items is that it's often all about the heat but the flavors imparted by the chilies aren't particularly noticeable or interesting. This honey has a great chili FLAVOR to it, in addition to the heat, but it doesn't overwhelm the flavor of the honey at all. I like it on buttered toast and on fried chicken equally well, and this has definitely become a staple 'sauce' for me!" —S. Ferguson

    "We first had this on a pepperoni pizza at a little place in Baltimore, and we got hooked! After buying some for ourselves and getting to experiment with it, we have come to the conclusion that it's good on everything!! Our favorite recipe? Hot honey lattes! Drop some of this in your milk as your frothing it and then enjoy as your morning is taken to a whole new level!" —Lindsay Roach
