Infused Honey by Oregon-based Bend Sauce Selected as a Finalist for 2024 Good Food Awards


Smokin’ Hot Honey, an award-winning infused honey by Bend Sauce, has been selected as a Finalist for the 2024 Good Food Awards. Bend-based Bend Sauce was previously awarded First Place for its Smokin’ Hot Honey by the International Flav Awards in 2023. “Our Smokin’ Hot Honey is made locally by infusing the beautiful organic Clover Honey produced by Oregon’s own Glory Bee Foods with the chipotle pulp and seeds, a byproduct from our Chipotle Hot Sauce production”, says Craig Reinhart, co-owner of Bend Sauce LLC. “Whether you are loading up your pizza or a charcuterie board with Smokin’ Hot Honey or topping a peanut and chocolate chip cookies vanilla sundae our hot honey will take these delights over the top” says Reinhart.
