Sweet Deals – Literally!

Lately we have been using mostly liquid sweeteners in our household, but they can be pricey … unless you shop around …

I received a wonderful gift of homegrown honey from Shirley at Gluten-Free Easily (from bees in her own backyard!), but needless to say, that treasure was devoured quickly. With my husband growing cranky for a sweetener for his coffee, but not willing to sacrafice the “raw, unfiltered, and domestic” status or pay an arm and a leg, he set out to find the best value he could. (vegans read on too, there’s something in this post for you too!)

Ambrosia honey and Coombs Organic maple syrupThe result? Four convenient bottles of Ambrosia Pure Honey From Colorado’s Western Slope (4 lbs in total) – raw and unfiltered, delivered to our door for just $11.77. I was a bit skeptical, but it turned out to be darn tasty honey, flavorful but relatively mild and pure tasting. We used the Subscribe & Save for this one (gives you 15% off and automatic free shipping). If we change our mind on reordering the honey, we can cancel the Subscribe & Save at any time, but we get to keep the product and discount and there are no fees! What a deal. My honey definitely hit a winner with this sweet purchase.

You say you are vegan? Before I forget, the Maple Syrup dealio is going on again this month (October 2009) on Amazon. I stocked up last month (I buy the Organic Grade B – more flavorful), but if you missed the discount or have already used up all of your maple syrup, you can get 64 ounces of Coombs Organic Maple Syrup delivered to your door for just $26.00 total using this month’s coupon code and Subscribe & Save (see my above notes for this discount). See the Coomb’s Sale Page for the coupon code and list of maple syrup options available. They say this offer ends on October 31, 2009. They did extend last month’s discount through this month, but who knows, this might be it!

Note: Amazon has been shipping out those Subscribe & Save orders lightening fast; I am getting them within 24 to 48 hours of ordering!
