Is It A Good Deal?
Aldi’s Manuka Honey has an MGO of 100+ which affects the price for Manuka Honey. The MGO 100+ is not a super high MGO level but it seem to be on the high end of the range for using it as a sweetener. The high end of the range would be a MGO 900+ for very targeted uses. The price goes up significantly for the high MGO levels.
Looking online you will find a wide range of brands offering Manuka Honey and a range from MGO 50+ to MGO 900+. So you can compare prices easily you should look at the price per ounce and compare similar levels of MGO. The Aldi Manuka Honey sells for about $1.58 per ounce with the MGO 100+. Manukora is a brand that offers MGO 100+ honey online or you can look at MGO 80+ Honey from Manuka Doctor.
Overall it looks like Aldi’s manuka honey is price pretty competitively if you are comparing it to honey with a similar MGO level. If you aren’t interested in trying a new type of honey or the potential health benefits of manuka honey be sure to try the regular Specially Selected Raw Honey.
Specially Selected Manuka Honey Reviews
Multi-Flora vs mono flora Manuka Honey
i notice Aldi Manuka Honey is Multi-floral which leads me to believe it’s not 100% from the Manuka plant. Multi-floral Manuka honey will usually have a lower MGO than mono-floral types of honey and are ideal for daily use. While they still contain beneficial antibacterial properties, vitamins, and minerals, the amounts are smaller than those found in mono-floral types of Manuka honey. For the $$$$ it still has health benefits.
Lovely flavour, slight peppermints taste, for a fiver a pot at 100MGO I can’t complain, NPA 6+, lovely stuff, goes well with cheese.
Loving the Aldi’s Manuka Honey!
What a great find! I bought 3 jars knowing how precious manuka honey is and what a great help it can be especially in flu season. I had to try it tonight I could not wait and let me tell you it has such a smooth, rich, divine flavor that we dont have in our honeys here. I would highly recommend this honey to anyone who loves different honey and to those needing a boost for through the flu season. Thank you Aldi’s!
Picked up a jar at Aldi on Sept. 8, 2022
I was happy to buy this at Aldi. I had heard of the benefits of this. It was a good price of $12.49. It’s nice and smooth. There were several jars left. I may need to go back and buy more as I didn’t realize it was hard to find. I ate a teaspoon and it calmed a cough I had.
Might be good stuff, if only Aldi really stocked it.
Like so many of the better deals, this one is not in stock.
I drove to two different stores to find it, but no luck. Asked about it, they said they never got it.
Might not be an illegal practice, but it’s not good business to advertise non-existing products just to bring in customers.
Response from AldiThings
Hey Jerry I know I have seen some of the Aldi Finds items come in a week or two late (or early) at my local store so keep an eye out next time you are there. I know Aldi has had some supply chain issues this past year but hopefully they are improving. If you still don’t have luck you can alway try to contact Aldi directly to see if there is any being shipped to your stores (not sure if the customer service would be able to tell you or not).
