Q:

Is Honeysuckle White or Butterball turkey better?

A:

Deciding whether Honeysuckle White or Butterball turkey is better is dependent on personal preferences and concerns. In a 2007 test conducted by The Denver Post, Butterball ranked first and Honeysuckle White ranked second amongst six brands evaluated.

Uneven browning and non-poultry flavors were noted by judges in the test as they sampled the Honeysuckle White turkey. Judges at the time noted that the white meat of the Butterball turkey was a little too dry. Other factors to consider in selecting the best choice for one's own table include concerns about hormones, salt and other ingredients. Nutritional information for the two brands is very similar, but the Honeysuckle White is noted for not including added hormones, additives, preservatives or antibiotics.
