Post subject: so called super food,,,,Apimist Plus
i bought some of this after reading up on its qualities. Its a mix of pollen, honey, royal jelly and propolis.
Its dead expensive and your advised to have only one tea spoon a day. Its supposed to be a excellent nutrient source....
AND IT ITS ABSOLUTELY VILE!!!!
i have one heck of a strong stomach but goodness this is gross. i have tried it neat, in a smoothie and now actually with chocolate
I CANT COPE!!!

good lord its vile. i went back packing round Asia and still this is the worst thing i have eaten.
its supposed to boost fertility - the zita west conception clinics recommend it. And as its got pollen in its good for hay fever.
its loaded with vitamins - b in particular.
god its awful. It even has a weird consistency. its slightly lumpy. errrgh
it cost 20 quid for a massive jar though. i will eat it!!!!

I've got honey with royal jelly and thats fine, but I've heard the bee propolis is horrible maybe try swallowing it quick and then eating a dry cracker to get your saliva going to rinse your mouth out and get rid of the taste , once you know somethings horrible though you're anticipating it tasting bad which I think makes it worse Good luck with the rest of the jar xx

Oh goddess I remember that. When I lived in Beijing with my hubby he brought some home as its supposed to be really good for your health. I couldn't even kiss him until the smell of it had disappeared. He gave me some and I remember being sick, but then again I did have morning sickness

Just read your response to the taste of Apimist and it made me laugh. We make it and I have to say it took me a while to get used to the taste. It's the propolis that has the strong taste and it seems to have the 'Marmite' effect - people either love it or hate it. We have tried wrapping it up in other flavours but can't disguise it without losing some of the nutritional benefits and purity is what we are about. Trust me you get used to it. I have been taking it for ten years now just to keep bugs and colds at bay and I don't notice it anymore.
Feedback from everyone on results makes it worth it I think. Sorry not to be able to make it more pleasant for you.
Good luck with everything.
