After a loved one was diagnosed with a chronic illness, Stephanie Rickenbaker got serious about clean living. She reduced her family’s exposure to toxins and learned about boosting health through nutrition.
During this journey, Stephanie developed an organic elderberry syrup. Her daughter, nicknamed "Sweet," loved the syrup so much that Stephanie named it for her. In a short time, Sweet's Syrup catapulted from a kitchen creation sold among friends to a household name. Sweet’s is available online and in shops across the Carolinas and Georgia.
Sweet’s Syrup practices environmental stewardship by packaging with recyclable materials and sourcing organic, sustainably farmed ingredients whenever possible.
The Sweet’s team is committed to helping you achieve better health through delicious, organic products delivered with honesty and exceptional customer satisfaction.
What's In Our Syrup
Hippocrates, the Greek Father of Medicine, called elderberry his “medicine chest” for its variety of uses. Sweet's Syrup uses the finest organic elderberries from the Styrian region of Austria.
Sweet’s is found in the refrigerator section because our honey is unpasteurized - and that’s intentional. Other elderberry syrups “hot pour” their mixture, destroying the honey’s beneficial live enzymes. Sweet’s holds onto every bit of the goodness in its honey, harvested four times a year across nine North Carolina counties by Charlotte-based Herb’s Honey.

your questions answered
I DON’T LIVE IN THE SOUTH! COULD SWEET'S STILL BENEFIT ME?
The honey in Sweet's is collected from bees foraging in the Southeastern U.S. If you're outside that zone, consider eating a spoonful of raw honey from your region each day, in addition to using Sweet's.
IS SWEET'S SYRUP SAFE FOR ME?
Sweet's contains unpasteurized honey, which can be risky for certain individuals. Please consult your doctor before consuming Sweet's if you are pregnant, nursing, or have a specific condition such as auto-immune disease.
HELP! WE HAVE PICKY EATERS.
Give it a fun name: magic syrup, num-num, honey juice, or just Sweet’s Syrup! One family named it “the good stuff.” For toddlers, try a medicine syringe, which fits nicely into the pint-sized Sweet’s bottle. For older children, make Sweet’s special by using a fun shot glass. Sweet’s is also delicious swirled into yogurt, oatmeal, and smoothies. It also pairs nicely with hot tea or whiskey, for picky eaters of the adult variety.
HOW LONG WILL SWEET'S SYRUP LAST?
Your shipment may arrive at room temperature, and this is OK. Sweet's has been successfully tested for short-term safety in this range. Simply get your syrup in the fridge as soon as it arrives. There is a date sticker on the bottle's bottom. Unopened, refrigerated bottles are good until that date. Opened bottles should be consumed within 3 months.
AT WHAT AGE CAN I START GIVING MY LITTLE ONE SWEET'S SYRUP?
Children over one year of age can safely consume unpasteurized honey. Please ask your pediatrician.
