When I visited my best friend last fall in Tallahassee, I wanted to bring something back to my co-workers and friends that was distinct to that area so my friend's husband recommended Tupelo honey. Not only is i delicious but it does not crystallize! (I wasn't a believer until I went through the first bottle myself).

From what I understand, it's from the pollen of Tupelo trees native to the Appallachicola area.

I now order from a local (FL) distributor and have it shipped to me. But I'm wondering if any of you have tried it, what you think, and if it's sold in stores in the Tampa Bay area.

I have not tried Tupelo honey, but wanted to mention another brand if you're ever in the South Tampa area. There's a hidden farm in South Tampa not too far from MacDill AFB, just off of Interbay (6101 South 2nd St, off Interbay Boulevard between MacDill Avenue and Bayshore Boulevard). They sell honey produced on site with an honor stand on 2nd street and Interbay. It's excellent stuff, I have a two year old jar that hasn't crystallized, and it might be a help for those who live in town and suffer from pollen allergies.

I'd give Tupelo a shot if this was out of reach for anyone local, I will just have a very difficult time switching up my new-found preference.

(note that milk and eggs are sometimes available at the farm stand as well)

Good to hear of another brand of honey that does not crystallize. That was the key selling point for me but then I found out how good it tastes so double bonus! But I will definitely check out that stand once I'm down there. I love supporting places like that!

I believe there are different grades of it. I think it comes in either light or dark. A friend of ours in Virginia sends us some for Christmas.

I browsed for "Tupelo honey Tampa Bay." The first link tells me where to get it in Tallahassee but it's a charming article.

Roadside vendor sells tupelo honey, mayhaw jelly; the Scriptures are free | Tampa Bay Times

Next is Sunshinecc's post. Then, of course, Tampa Bay Farmer's Market at Swann and MacDill.

I'll be looking for some Tupelo honey!

Oh! Oh! I know the answer to this one! Fresh Market in St. Pete carries Tupelo honey. HoneyPax is the brand. You can even use the code on the bottle to find the exact area that particular batch comes from. A bit pricey but a pure taste and no waste.

I did buy some of mine from roadside markets. I also bought that mayhaw jelly (too much sugar for me but it was tasty all the same) and tried for the first time boiled peanuts! Then there were others selling things out of the back of a pickup. Those I did not stop at, lol.

Let me know what you think of it!

That is VERY good news! Yes, it is a bit pricey but it is worth it for sure. Thanks for the info
