Manuka honey 250g £2.79 at B&M Bargains

Found 5th Mar 2013
Manuka honey comes from New Zealand, and typically costs upwards of £6 for a 250g jar in pharmacies and supermarkets. At £2.79 this is a bargain. The picture is of the jar that I bought in the Queensferry store.

it all depends on the rating. I don't buy honey however have seen these in tesco's and they vary in price depending on the grade/rating.

It does appear to defy gravity though, so that must be worth something?

LOL - guess my camera work leaves something to be desired :-)

Does anyone know what the rating is on this pease?

U can get manuka 10+ in Aldi for under £3. Its always this price

Unless there's another one (which seems unlikely with Aldi), it's £3.99

It all depends on what you want the honey for, the UMF or MGO values represent the antibacterial properties of the honey, the higher rating is better. If you're trying to heal a sore throat, stomach ulcer, burns etc this is the stuff you want.

If you are just buying this because you enjoy the taste, just buy the cheapest stuff you can find, if it's labelled Manuka it has to be at least 70% manuka honey. I much prefer the taste of the NZ variety

hmmm.... if they can add horsemeat in a supposedly beef quarter pounder, I guess we have to be really beware with this overly cheaper version of Manuka honey... just in case since most likely we r drinking manuka honey for health reason.....

Horrible tasting honey with no scientific validation for its health claims. This is still over priced but a hot deal if you want Manuka honey so I voted it hot.

These claims here are known commonly as Pseudoscience
This is basically magic honey.

I know a couple of Bee keepers and they laugh at the price of this honey they, as well as most Bee keepers think it's a huge con.This is the stuff that used to get thrown away or kept for winter feeding. much better to find a local Bee keeper and stick to local honey the health benefits are the same if not better.

It's not a pure manuka honey!

Did you get this duty free on the ferry. Is it only non EU or can EU get it. I didn't know B&M had stores on ferrys they don't have one on the Holyhead to Dublin.

Top of the jar has a label stating pure honey. It doesn't offer a rating on the label.

There is a label by the barcode "SOS DE21 4BD"., identifying the company as Special Offer Suppliers ltd.

ty stevie....what a load of poop then

Manuka Honey = Massive scam. Even if it did have 'magic' qualities, the amount most people consume would render it ineffective. If you honestly believe eating a couple of spoons of honey is going to significantly affect your health then you are just the right kind of person to pay through the nose for this stuff.

This honey is a joke I asked a health shop worker what the grading meant and she couldn't explain it, yet to see a proper explanation she would have had more luck explaining what sun lotion factors means. This honey is a massive con

I think my sister would take some convincing that it has no benefits. Having suffered cancer the resulting chemo and radiotherapy causes sores. Applying Manuka honey directly on the sores quickly healed them. Also if people believe that something will do them good then the power of the mind can actually work wonders.

I would call honey (any good natural honey) a magical food. Expecially when compared to sugar. I use honey instead of sugar, for anything, including baking bread and so on. Would two spoons make a difference in your health? Well that's more then 700 spoons a year and zero spoons of sugar for me, so it might.

A bit too much negativity in here.

Hot from me regardless of UMF, Recently visited NZ for a month and that **** over there is SO expensive to here? weird when you consider export costs!?

Well with royal mails new prices it costs less to send a parcel to NZ than it does to in the UK!
local honey can also be way expensive.

I'm not 100% how much better this is than normal honey, but as long as it tastes good
any health benefit is a bonus

Fairly sure Waitrose sell a 30 + (amongst others 10+ 15+ etc) for £32.50 per 250g jar

This was in Asda at the weekend £6.95 it was!

It would have fitted in my pocket lovely.

Had A Cold with a bitch of a sore throat whilst I was in NZ, this seemed to speed up the normal time it takes me to get over a cold, can only speculate but pretty sure it assisted with symptoms, and who doesn't love eating honey out of a pot anyway??

I read a website that said anything above NPA 15+ was suspect as the honey might have been tampered with to get such a high reading. I like the way 10 and 15+ tingles on the tongue, it feels like there is something anti-bacterial going on but would need to do a double blind test with another premium honey to prove it.
