Bee Pollen

What does it taste like? I see it at whole foods all the time and I know its good for you but im always afraid to buy it. I think its the word pollen that grosses me out. Im sure its not that bad and I normally like most foods but can anyone try to describe the flavor/taste.


  • it tastes a little like honey, but it’s also chalky, and just a teeny bit spicy, not hot, but spicy like fennel or something. and maybe just a teeny bit like soap, too. mostly honey and chalk. it takes a little time to acquire, but i enjoy it. you can eat it in other foods if the flavor bothers you. it’s definitely worth trying. my co-op has it in bulk, so maybe you can just get a small amount to see if you like it.

  • Thanks so much for replying, and that doesnt sound so bad and I like the taste of honey! Next time I go to the store I will have to pick some up!

  • I like eating my bee pollen in my smoothies. About 1 tbsp. blended in.
