Flavors of Honey included:

- Gourmet Varietal Honey, Northwestern Meadowfoam: Cultivated in central Oregon, and also native to California, this native flower’s white and yellow blossoms cover the coastal valleys, foothills, and mountains with a creamy, floral foam.  This honey is quickly becoming a household favorite, thanks to its radically unique flavor and aroma profile of both cupcakes baking and marshmallows toasting. Hints of vanilla toffee ride out a smooth and lingering finish.  Sunset Magazine rated the Northwestern Meadowfoam honey number one in their ‘Top 5 West Coast Honeys’ list

Blackberry Blossom Honey:  A classic favorite. Brambly blackberries delicate white and pink blooms offer a profusion of nectar to the honeybee. The resulting honey is light amber in color, exploding with juicy flavor, with a smooth vanilla finish.  Recommend paired with soft, ripe cheeses or warm, buttered cornbread.

- Mexican Coffee Blossom:  Traditionally called Cafetál, this variety of honey translates as “Coffee Garden Honey.”  Coffee blossoms are creamy white, delicate, and sweet. Mexican Coffee Blossom Honey, yields a bold coffee flavor balanced by an earthy profile of licorice, cacao, and fig.

About Z Speciality Foods:  After graduating from college, founder Ishai Zeldner decided to pursue adventure by living on a Kibbutz in Israel. For nine months, six days a week were split between learning Hebrew and working on the kibbutz, mostly in the fields. He immediately felt at home on Kibbutz Beit HaShita, a cooperative community that not only raised fish and cattle for consumption but grew agricultural products such as cotton, melon, grapefruit and olives. It also produced honey.

Although beekeeping was brand new to him, Ishai took to it like a natural, and Yosef Gidron, the kibbutz beekeeper, noticed. Soon, Yosef asked Ishai to be his assistant, and he became a friend and mentor. While Ishai may not have known it at the time, his future career path had begun. It was an opportunity to learn beekeeping from a master, and Ishai worked with and learned from Yosef throughout four bee seasons. When asked about his half-century love affair with honeybees, Ishai said, "My mentor kept bees 'til he was 90. That's my role model."

During his time at UC Davis, Ishai was introduced to varietal honeys, and became particularly fond of Yellow Star Thistle Honey. He loved it so much that he began giving it away to his friends, and quickly realized he was going broke doing so. Thus, Moon Shine Trading Company was started with 180 pounds of pure Yellow Star Thistle Honey packed in canning jars.
