Countless new made with honey bakery and snacks foods have hit supermarket shelves in the last year, and the National Honey Board recognized the top ones through its Queen’s Choice Awards. Given to food manufacturers that use honey to formulate and market a product, the Queen’s Choice Awards were conceived to recognize exceptional uses of honey as an all-natural flavor, sweetener and functional ingredient.

“From trail mix to whole grain breads, we’ve seen some incredible products that use honey developed in the last 12 months,” Catherine Barry, National Honey Board’s director of marketing, says. “By recognizing some of these products through our Queen’s Choice Award, we’re able to show appreciation to bakeries and snack manufacturers that choose honey and use it as a flavor, functional ingredient and marketing benefit.”

The Queen’s Choice Awards were handed out in the following categories:

  • Packaging / Design: Organic RealBar
  • Snack: Supernola – Honey Sweet Goji, EVOLVE Brands
  • Bar: KIND Kids Chewy Honey Oat, KIND Snacks
  • Sweet Good: Raspberry Cocoa Brownie, Base Culture
  • Bread: Simply Small Honey Oat, Bimbo Bakeries USA
  • Cereal: Kashi by Kids Honey Cinnamon, Kashi
