Can you believe that we are already in the first week of August? This summer has flown by! For many, August signals the beginning of the back to school season, but in many parts of the country, kids don’t go back to school until the end of August, meaning that there are still a couple weeks of sweet summer left.

While we may be focused on making sure we have all of the pencils, notebooks and other supplies necessary to set our kids up for a successful school year, we must not forget to spend quality time with our loved ones before the craziness of the new season. Whether it’s taking one last camping trip or hosting family, friends, and neighbors for a weekend barbecue, honey can help you savor the last sweet moments of summer.

If you follow our blog regularly (and let’s be honest, why wouldn’t you?), you have heard us talk a lot about honey’s functional benefits across your entire menu.
