Brendhan.  That was kind of a wierd statement, about pollen tasting nasty  :shock: :? :roll:  Now my curiosity has arisen.  Does the pollen that comes from your area taste nasty?  The pollen that I have tasted that I have collected from my particular area has kind of a sweet, flowery taste, which I could only describe as nice.  Tell us about your pollen.  Have a wonderful and beautiful day (I am envious of the warm, sunshiney day that I know you are having, hee, hee  ;) :) :) :).  Cindi

To bad it tastes so nasty.

I concur with that statement as well.  It is sweet with a fruity taste, but has a strong unpleasantness about it.  I've bought it and also tried my own.

In fact, I don't like honey that has too much pollen in it, I can tell.  Some honey from a cutout that I did, I thought was contaminated or something it was so strong, but since I've identified that smell/taste as pollen.  It made good mead  :-D. 

If I had to describe my perception of the flavor that I tasted, I would describe it as "mafia pear"...the decent flavor of pear somehow gotten too strong and bad.

The taste to me is kinda bland or nasty and the texture is wierd. So to me it is nasty. But you are talking to someone here who doesn't eat brocolli or cauliflower. My wife likes some of the pollen but it just isn't my thing.

I happen to fall into the category of those who love pollen and it is good for you! Some is better tasting but all is good in my book. Hint, for that which is a little bitter mix with honey and you will be gulping down more. Eat your pollen, its good for you. ;)

I can eat broccoli and cauliflower all day long. Food textures I can't stand is shrimp, lobster, crab.
