Get your tastebuds ready for a treat! The wonderful people at Mohawk Valley Trading Company sent us some amazing products to review!   This company takes their beeswax, honeys and all products they make, very seriously.  Everything is pure – straight from nature!  An impressive fact about Mohawk Valley Trading Company is that its products are used and endorsed by Tom Colicchio, one of the world’s most recognized and respected chefs!  Here are the wonderful products they sent us to review:

* 16 oz glass bottle of Grade A, Robust, Dark, Pure Maple Syrup
* 1 lb glass jar of Raw Summer Wildflower Honey
* 1 lb glass jar of Raw Autumn Wildflower Honey
* 2″x3″ Beeswax Candle
* (2) 1 oz. bars of Beeswax
* (2) bars of Handmade Soap (Castile & Goat’s Milk Lavender)

Jen tried the Grade A Robust Dark Maple Syrup and was immediately hooked.  Not only is this amazing syrup primarily made from sugar maple sap, it has no additives – giving you a very pure and distinctive maple syrup taste.  Once you open the bottle, you’ll smell a warm brown sugary aroma.  It’s intensely smooth and has a really silky texture to it, but the best part is the taste.  Wow.  So long, Aunt Jemima!  It’s over, Mrs. Butterworth’s!  We have a new favorite syrup!  That brown sugar fragrance now becomes a deep, rich and sweet taste.  This is a maple syrup you won’t forget, once you try it!
Honey is a wonderful treat, no matter how you use it.  It has a unique flavor that you can’t replicate or find anywhere else in nature – a sweetness that only bees can provide!  Mohawk Valley Trading Company doesn’t heat, filter, blend or process their honey.  That means that all of the pollen, enzymes, vitamins, aromatics and natural ingredients are in the same condition as they were in the hive.  Now that’s RAW honey! We were sent 2 amazing honeys to try out:  Raw Summer Wildflower Honey and Raw Autumn Wildflower Honey.  Both honeys are incredible.  They are super thick and creamy, rich with that smoothness that you expect from quality, raw honey.  Both of these raw honeys have a nice, sweet tang to them, with almost a lemony zest appeal to them. The Summer Wildflower Honey was slightly sweeter but they were both extremely flavorful and incredible in tea!  
The Beeswax Candle  has a clean, fresh and natural scent.  These are hand poured, hand dipped and made with 100% cotton wicks.  They are all natural, unbleached and 100% pure.  This was a wonderful candle to have lit on a chilly Winter night – and it lasted a really long time!  The Beeswax that they sent us is pretty amazing.  You can use Beeswax for unsticking drawers, preserving bronze, and even waterproofing leather!  There are MANY uses for Beeswax, but we used it to help waterproof Jen’s husband’s leather shoes.  Rub it on, wipe with a cloth and that’s it!

If you’ve never used all natural, handmade soaps, you’re in for a treat with these!  The Castile Soap and Goat’s Milk Lavender soaps are free of dyes, fragrances, detergents and preservatives.  They are quite literally all natural!  The silky smoothness and clean textures of these soaps allow for a very native, refreshing feeling on your skin after you use them.  If you’ve got sensitive skin, this is a perfect and ideal soap for you!
Check out all of these amazing products, along with everything else Mohawk Valley Trading Company has to offer by visiting their site, HERE!  Now is your chance to win this incredible prize package worth $80 – filled with all of the products we reviewed.  We’ll be hosting a giveaway, beginning January 2, 2014, so keep watching the blog for details!
