Great Bee pollen
Posted by Reviewer1906231 on Mar 10, 2009
I take this everyday and I give it to my dogs as well! Taste is good but you can always wash it down with water if you can't take the taste..Peeps...I would rather go to a honey bee than a doctor any day of the week! Read up on all natural bee products. Works for me and my mom is one of those few people whose gray hair turned brown again and she is 83 and thrilled. So so many benefits from natural bee products!!! Your vitamins for the day are in there plus you could live off of bee pollen and water!!
Best fresh bee pollen - for real!
Posted by Reviewer3200049 on Mar 23, 2008
This is the best fresh bee pollen I have ever used, and I have tired several brands and even local product. Most brands are dried up, or smell and taste like a barnyard...ugh. NOT SO with C.C. Pollen....just the best there, and the Iherb price cna't be beat. Thanks!
Very moist and Fresh

This pollen is some of the best pollen I've tasted. It's super fresh and moist ( some pollen can be dried out). Highly recommend it
Don't use UPS next day shipping, you waste the money. It is dried and not fresh !

I purchased this one recently. During the checkout, iHerb suggested me to use UPS next day shipping, which costs about $10 extra dollar. They warned me that the pollen is fresh and it is better to ship with ICE using the next day service. I paid the UPS the next days service. My order was placed on Tu, iherb shipped out on Friday!!! I was promised that they will not ship on Friday since UPS will not deliver it on Sat (I chatted with an iherb rep online). However, the item was actually shipped it on Friday!! I received it on Monday, the ICE Pack was not cold as expected. When I opened the Bee Pollen bag, it was not fresh at all. It was quite dried indeed. I don't think 3 days shipping caused the Pollen Dried, this was dried from the beginning. It was not fresh when they shipped to me. Don't waste your money to ship it by the next day shipping method, it is not fresh anyway. USE normal shipping will make no difference.
What a Great Product

I highly recommend bee pollen to anyone. I have been taking this product for the past 3 weeks. The difference is that I have more energy and my allergy symptoms have been relieved. My appetite has deminished and I have less cravings for sweets and carbohydrates. My sleep pattern has been restored. I also am exercising more just because I have more energy.
Tasty and very pleasant

This pollen tastes very good and is almost moist. I read on another website that bee pollen needs to be soaked in water in order to be absorbable to the body. The dry granules sold by other companies cannot be digested and absorbed because of their hard consistency, which is a pity given the high nutritive value of bee pollen. It seems that this product has been soaked to attain the correct consistency and if it is kept in the fridge it remains this way.

To my surprise this bee pollen taste so much better than the brand I started out with. Like someone had mentioned the other brand tasted like a barn yard. CC's is much tastier and dissolves faster in my mouth.

The freshness of these pollen is excellent! The taste is something completely different than dried pollen. Feels great to eat. I will reoorder and can highly recommend CCPollen.
Bitter!!! Waste of money!!!
Posted by 5523305871583610517 on Dec 18, 2013
I bought this because of all the positive reviews. This stuff tastes awful! It's bitter and doesn't give me the energy that I'm used to. VERY DISAPOINTED!!! I've been taking bee pollen for about a year. I bought fresh local, and ys organics. This is no comparison. Should've just stuck to my ys. It's also cheaper. Will NOT buy again.
Using during 20+ day detox
Posted by Reviewer3062358 on Feb 27, 2010
I am using this during a detox and have noticed a nice smooth energy as I've gone through even at 1-2 teaspoons per day. Some people I know like to put this on salads or sprinkle it in yogurt. The former did not sound appealing to me, but the latter does. If I were not lactose intolerant, that is exactly how I'd eat this. For now, I put it in smoothies and it just disappears. Between that and Amazing Grass Wheat Grass Powder that I'm also reviewing today, they've been nice supplements to even out my energy during this detox and to get some extra nutrition given many foods are limited.
