I have read that one type has health benefits however that makes it double the price in the shops for some reason, so , no, I do not care which honey I buy as long as it is in a container that you can pour from and not the type you have to put a spoon into.

I find these very messy yet the "upside down" brand that I buy is far more convenient, and this one comes in two types of different honey.

I thought all types of honey has benefits, but then it would make sense that those that've been processed or produced with pestecides would not be as good as those that haven't. I try to buy organic honey when and where I can.

The Manuka honey from New Zealand has several different Health benefit 'grades' and these are priced accordingly to their properties. It is expensive ,but also very delicious!! I was given a jar of it as a gift! 'Medi Honey' is actually Manuka Honey of the highest grade,sold at chemists and health food shops to be used on wound dressings. I have found it to be really good,as I do with Paw paw ointment!!
As for the honey which I buy,it is from an apiarist who sells his honeys at the local farmers markets.I have bought different honeys from him for many years,and never get it from the supermarket anymore. I have a squeeze bottle which I transfer the local honey into for ease of use. On the Atherton Tablelands,in the well-known Rainfoirest Village of Kuranda,there is the world famous Honey House,where not only more types of honey than you could ever wish for are sold,but also these are available for free tasting!! I have,on many past visits, purchased honey from this wonderful place!
Honey has of late become expensive.
I know there are problems with Bee's....maybe that is the reason?
I had to stop buying it.
Even my supermarkets around my area were running out?

I have made the choice for a little while to lay-off, and just watch what is happening to the stores, before buying any more...
There was a honey shortage late last year/early this year in Australia, something to do with the weather from memory. The bees are not in decline in Australia so far as we don't have colony collapse disorder here (the problem they're having in Europe and the USA), and hopefully won't.
When working, chap there kept bees. I'd buy a kilo bottle of both Light Ironbark & Dark Ironbark. It's just beautiful! Great for cooking.

At Royal Show, stock up with year's worth of Creamed Honey! On toast, it's the, well, 'bees' knees', so to speak! Lol!
I tend to buy any type though it would be nice to always be able to buy the best!
I like the container you turn upside down and squeeze (you have to leave nozzle up for awhile when you turn it back rightside up, else top gets all sticky.
by Fran
no my top does not get sticky if you close it properly
by Finy
Even if you close it quickly? The honey needs to go back down into the container I find. Anyway..hey...get a life Fran!!!

I've been to honey tastings and when I tried a couple of types in a row I could taste the difference and preferred some over others, but when I buy it from the supermarket I really don't mind since if you are cooking with it it's harder to pick up subtleties to the flavour. I think the kind we normally get is clover honey.
I buy raw organic Manuka honey for health purposes and normal honey for cooking with.
What ever is cheap and ethical.
I usually buy local honey from the farmers market when possible, and if I can find the raw unfiltered kind I will get that one. Supposedly that kind has the most nutritional benefits and I hope that is correct, because it is a bit pricey. I don't mind the price so long as it really is that much better and full of the health benefits!
I always buy raw organic honey from local market. I would love to try Manuka honey some day but it's way too expensive for me.
I don't mind what brand of honey I buy

I buy my honey from the Bee Hives keeper
I am a bit spoilt, ever since my grade 5 school teacher had bee hives at school and we would extract the honey to sell at the school fete along with honey based bickies and slices, I really prefer unprocessed honey fresh from the hive. If I am desperate I will by capilano honey.
Tasmanian honey, or

Capillano....don't stop!
As a woman from the bush! My favorite by far is yellow Box. Just so yummy for everything!

Honey bought at Supermarkets has had the goodness heated out of it so it's just honey. Raw honey with its little bits in it is good for hay fever if it has been produced in your area. Hive beetle is really giving bee keepers a lot of trouble in controlling and land clearing along with the dry.
I love orange blossom honey or creamed honey but the creamed kind is even harder to find than the runny kind now :(
Hello Helya.........is there not a local Show to go to, & buy creamed honey from the bee keepers?
As I said above, I buy a year's worth of Creamed Honey at our Royal Show, as there's always a 'Bee Stand' there. It's beautiful, & reasonably priced.

When our cruise ship had a day on Kangaroo Island, on an around Australia cruise, we bought some lovely ‘home grown’ honey. I will buy the Aldi honey, as long as it’s all Australian. We how have a couple near who live in our suburb, who make & sell their own honey. We just ordered it, leave the money in our very big letterbox, & they’ll drop of the honey & take the money! I’ve forgotten the sort of honey we like the best.
Recently, I had to buy Australian honey for our visitors from USA. I decided to buy from the producers who sell at the local market. I bought a few different ones including and had one extra bottle of stringy bark honey leftover, which I kept for myself. Today, I opened the bottle and had some with bread, and simply loved the taste. Now I want to try other honeys pollinated from different flowers. On a chapter on Bees, the Quran mentions that "From inside them comes a drink of varying hues containing healing for
mankind. There is certainly a sign in that for people who reflect".
Honey certainly is used as medication and has so much of benefits. When I google on the benefits of honey, I am quite blown away on its benefits.
