Peace River Hot Honey, a new line by Honey Bunny Inc. of Guy, Alta., features sweet and savoury flavours to inspire bakers and chefs.

The honeys come in three flavours – Peace River Hot Honey, Peace River Bourbon Hot Honey and Peace River Pineapple Jalapeno Honey – with an opportunity to create custom flavours.

The honeys could be used on pizza, as a dip, on a charcuterie board, chicken wings, breakfast sandwiches, cocktails, grilled vegetables, ice cream topping, bacon and many other menu items.

Hot honey as a condiment has grown more than 35 per cent in last year and has shown 176 growth over the past four years, the company says, referring to research by the USA National Honey Board.


Peace River Hot Honey was named 2022 Canadian Grand Prix New Product Awards Winner in the condiments and sauces category. It is sold in easy-to-use squeeze bottles or in bulk.

Its parent company, Honey Bunny Inc., a 4,000-hive apiary and food processing facility, has been owned and operated by the Wolfe family since the 1980s.

The company has been certified organic since 1996. In 2016, it became the first apiary in Canada to be non-GMO project verified. It is also certified kosher, CFIA licensed and SQF audited. The honey products are gluten-free.
