Frequently Asked Questions

HELP!  WE HAVE PICKY EATERS!  

From the start, we discourage referring to Sweet’s as medicine of any sort. 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 delicious swirled into yogurt, oatmeal, and smoothies. It also pairs nicely with hot tea or whiskey, for picky eaters of the adult variety.
HOW MUCH AND HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE SWEET'S SYRUP?
An adult serving is 1 tablespoon per day, while a child’s serving is 1 teaspoon per day.  Serving frequency may be increased to every 3 hours if desired.  
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.  If you'd like our syrup without honey, pick up a Sweet's DIY Kit!  Sweeten to your liking with agave, erythritol, or Stevia.   
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 confirm with your pediatrician.  If you'd like our syrup without honey, try a Sweet's DIY Kit, and sweeten to taste with fruit juices or nectar.  Many little ones like unsweetened syrup stirred into fruit puree or applesauce. 
HOW LONG WILL SWEET'S SYRUP LAST?
Sweet's Syrup must be refrigerated.  Each bottle has a sell-by date on the bottom.  Once a bottle is opened, we recommend consuming within 3 months.  Unopened bottles are good for 6 months from sell-by date.  Syrup can also be frozen for longer-term storage.
MY SYRUP ARRIVED WITH A MELTED ICE PACK.  IS IT OK?
Yes.  Online orders ship with an ice pack in an insulated pouch.  Sweet's has been successfully tested for safety at room temperature for several days.  However, you should get your syrup into the fridge as soon as it arrives.
I DON’T LIVE IN THE SOUTHEAST.  WILL SWEET'S SYRUP STILL BENEFIT ME?
The honey in Sweet's contains pollen from foliage common to the Southeastern U.S.  If you live outside this region, we recommend eating raw honey from your area each day, in addition to using Sweet's Syrup.  You might also consider making a Sweet's DIY Elderberry Syrup Kit, adding YOUR local honey!
