Comvita Manuka Honey UMF 15+ 250g 50p Instore Sainsbury's

Found 24th Oct 2013
Hi, I just came across this, Comvita Manuka Honey UMF 15+ 250g reduced to 50p Instore at Sainsbury's Wigan.
This sells for £28.99 on the Comvita website for this size and the instore old price is Sainsbury's was £21.99 so a total bargain if this is for you
I found it at the side of the instore pharmacy near to snoring aids and medicines etc.
Not sure if it is store specific but this is not on the website, the closest to it is Sainsbury manuka Honey 15+ 340g £12.99.
There were about 5 jars left on the shelf and it is only November 2016 expiry.

In all honesty, I'm not a honey fan but my son likes it so I thought, why not?

blazing hot for that price, wish my sainsburys had it though!

This was 1 of the few bargains in stock at mine, lots of empty shelves for all the other bargains posted on here that I looked for

store specific

Hot if you can get it! ..nice find OP.

Anyone else know about the claim though that there is more alleged manuka stickered honey than is actually produced!? ..wondering how valid the claim is on a pot when you buy it.

Major honey fan here, ..albeit confused.

problem is some is verified some isnt.
a company can claim its manuka and give it a rating,usually call it active.
stuff like this is given an official rating.
they have the big jars in home bagains
i live in wigan but im a foitty tonight and cant be arsed going up other way lol.

I think Aldi and Home bargains do a good price on these also?

amazing price

Look for 'UMF' on the jar. This is the guarantee that it's genuine Manuka honey and you can check the (small) number of producers who can use this trademark. Ignore anything that simply claims 'Active' followed by a number - all honey is 'active' to some extent. There is more 'Manuka' honey sold in the UK alone than is actually produced - most of it isn't genuine.

Unless you find a clearance deal like this, you won't get a bargain. Why would genuine Manuka be sold off cheap when demand so massively outstrips supply? All the cheap deals in most of the supermarkets are no better than a jar of honey which costs £1.50. Even Holland and Barrett ask huge amounts of money for Manuka which isn't certified. Expect to pay around £13 for a 500g jar of 5+ and around £30 for a jar of 15+.

The one in the OP is UMF and from a reputable supplier and an absolute bargain if you can find one.

As to whether or not it's worth the cost - that's another story and you need to decide for yourself!

Heat added, but sadly still full price in our local store - superb value if you can get it at the price

Good deal, they did this last year, total bargain.

This is a bargain of the century. Not voting hot because it doesn't help me. Store specific.

Was £9.98 in my local in slough but a proce check revealed price of 50p so worth a price check in other stores

What a coincidence... I've been writing a report about the origin of manuka honey today and when I come home I find a manuka honey deal on here.

How very strange... must check if my Sainsburys has it.

Thanks both posters for the info! very enlightening.

Manuka is a massive con for the gullible, however you can't argue at this price, although I usually find its not as nice to eat ad plain old cheap honey. UMF rating lol, very scientific.

I have no conclusive opinion one way or the other on the efficacy of Manuka honey and the science behind the UMF rating is sketchy, but that wasn't the question asked. The question was how to tell if Manuka honey is genuine or not and the UMF trademark is the only way to do this. Each jar has a unique batch number which can be traced back to the hive it came from.
