Biscuits need no introduction. Comfort food of the South, flaky and buttery, biscuits are as easy to incorporate into almost any meal. My favorite way to serve them is topped with bee bread honeycomb.

Bee bread is nothing like it sounds: it’s simply pollen and nectar that bees have deposited directly into the cells of the honeycomb. Bee pollen is nature’s most complete food – in fact, it contains every nutrient and vitamin you need to survive, with the exception of Vitamin D. The amino acids and proteins found in bee bread honeycomb provide just as much protein as red meat.

This powerhouse honeycomb is the best way to up your biscuit game. Try some today!
