I’ve always drank a good amount of liquids. Since surgery I find that I usually look for tasty drinks that are low in calories. I was offered the opportunity to try new honeydrop Beverages. I was intrigued by the description and accepted.

Honeydrop Bottles


Cancer survivor David Luks quit his long time job at Pepsi to focus on creating an organic beverage that has absolutely no sugar, corn syrup or anything artificial. His honeydrop beverages are just that. honeydrop currently includes two organic honey infused organic juices and one tea. They contain only 40 calories per serving (2 servings per 16.9 oz PBA-free, recycleable bottle) and each bottle has a spoonful of honey.

The flavors include:
1. Bee Alive – Blood Orange & Honey
2. Bee Calm – Chamomile, Tea & Honey
3. Bee Strong – Blueberry & Honey

His products are USDA Certified Organic, sweetened only with a spoonful of organic honey from Brazil. Luks believes in the many medicinal benefits of honey: it helps alleviate sore throats, protects against chronic conditions such as obesity and hypertension; it is lower on the glycemic index (64) relative to sugar (100), making it an attractive sweetener for diabetics. It’s also a great alternative for athletes as it contains glucose and fructose; glucose burns slowly for lasting energy, and fructose burns fast for instant energy and performance. Honey also naturally contains antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

Luks developed the company during cancer at Sloan Kettering two years ago where he learned about the benefits of an organic lifestyle from his doctors. With that knowledge, he created a drink from the land, not the lab.


I received samples of each flavor. I don’t love or hate honey so I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about these beverages. I was pleasantly surprised. The beverages are sort of a cross between a water and a juice, and I did find them refreshing. They’re sweet without being sickeningly sweet or syrupy. The flavor was surprisingly good. They’re mellow and subtle flavors, the honey isn’t overpowering at all. My favorite flavor is the Blood Orange & Honey, followed by the Blueberry & Honey and then the Chamomile, Tea & Honey. I enjoyed them quite a lot and look forward to when they’re available in our area.

honeydrop is available at select stores across the country including 125 Whole Foods stores , as well as online. Check the honeydrop store locator to find who in your area carries it.
