I guess the beekeepers with the starnge colored honey could sell it to Mars candy .
They probably have some candy that uses honey & with the right food dyes I bet no one would notice.

The ant image is cool & it looks like some of them are double dipping.

My father kept bees and this is nothing new. Honey is always impacted buy the nectar the bees consume. He had all kinds of grades that he harvested depending on where he set the hives. In Florida he set many near orange groves and they produced a darker honey with a more earthy taste. In general, the lighter the color of honey the higher a grade it is given. IMO, some of the best honey came from hives that were near clover fields. I would buy M&M honey just to see how it tastes. In the USA they probably could sell it for more money than regular honey. It makes me wonder what the honey would taste like if the bees were eating the chocolate centers.

Onion and Garlic make for interesting honey too.

For all we know the colourings could have been concentrated by the bees to harmful levels.

I think the main problem though is that this was material from a plant that processes [U]waste[/U] from the M & M factory so dear only knows what else was in with it.

Yeah that’s the way I am with savoury stuff as opposed to sweet things. :bigsmile:

Crisps, peanuts, tortilla chips etc are my downfall.

I could eat those all day. :stuck_out_tongue: drool

When I do eat sweet things it tends to be the less sweet stuff like dark chocolate, rhubarb tart, black forest gateau and the like.

Although mind you I eat a lot of plain oaty style biscuits like Hobnobs etc.
