How to Eat Honeycomb

Honeycomb is rustic and sophisticated, sweet and rich, and a completely unique and delicious way to elevate your plate.  

But honeycomb can pose a bit of a challenge for the uninitiated - how, exactly, do you eat it? Although the intricate comb may look like a tricky thing to navigate, raw honeycomb can be eaten as is - no work required!

Here are some of our favourite ways to add honeycomb to our table. 

  1. Spread a spoonful of honeycomb over butter on fresh, warm bread straight from the oven or toaster. It’s especially decadent on pancakes, waffles, and banana bread!
  2. Honeycomb is a great addition to any charcuterie board. It works wonderfully with bread, meat, fruit, and of course, cheese! If you like strong, flavourful cheeses, we recommend a chunk of honeycomb with blue cheese and a slice of pear or apple. If you like lighter, milder cheese, add honeycomb to a cracker with baked brie or camembert and a little rosemary.

  3. Start your day off right with a slice of honeycomb melting over a warm bowl of oatmeal, or into plain yogurt for a kick of natural sweetness.

  4. Honeycomb is a surprising addition that takes artisan pizza to the next level. Try a touch of honeycomb with salami and chili oil, or with prosciutto, balsamic vinegar, and basil.

  5. Of course, the most deliciously indulgent way to eat honeycomb is straight from the container with a spoon! It’s a delightful way to begin the morning, a sweet lunchtime mood-booster, or a guilt-free treat at the end of a long day.

Alysia, because honeycomb has natural beeswax it will ball up in your mouth just like gum but because it is all natural it is safe to swallow and eat whole. Some people spit it out because they don’t like the texture but that is just personal preference. Raw Honeycomb is the rawest form of honey that you can get so it is packed full with healthy nutrients, enzymes and minerals!

The honeycomb feels like gum to me. Is it okay to swallow? I am afraid it is difficult to digest like gum. Is the honeycomb nutritious?

Hey Alana, Since this product is completely raw, that may happen! It is still totally fine to eat. The beeswax combs are sensitive to melting if they are heated, so we recommend just enjoying it as is. If you want to heat it slightly you can either place it in a bowl of hot water for about 30 seconds or microwave it quickly in 5-second increments.


I bought my honeycomb a few months ago and forgot about it because it was hiding in the pantry! It is now hard, is it still good to eat if I just warm it up?
