    Honey. Soother of sore throats, temptress of tubby bears. It's tasty and nutritional. A bit of honey can provide a quick source of energy, and some athletes use before workouts or games. It makes beer better and allows us to make mead. Best of all, it comes in little sticks for our convenience. I just ordered a 200 ct. tub.


    Honey rules.

    Oh hells yeahs!!!

    I used to love going to farmers market back in russia and buying honey with wax in it... it used to be like chewing a recycleble gun because once taste was gone you can dip it in honey again and keep it up till wax is gone...

    Honey is awesome... one of the reason that i didnt mind being sick because my grandma would feed me honey none stop:)

    MMMM warm milk mixed with honey and i think eggwhite or something... it was goooooooood and helped alot during sick times:)

    I also remember my grandpa bringing a bucket of honey from village:) that was awesome too:)

    Tupelo honey is so good, it convinced a Scottish singer who had never tasted it to write a great song about it.

    Also, I hear that if you have allergies, eating honey that is produced locally can help.

    If any of you get the chance to taste honey made exclusively from orange blossoms DO IT!!! It's the most incredible, delicate, flavor you've ever tasted. Floridians can attest to this fact. It's a common thing for the growers to maintain beehives in their groves. I know they get honey from this but I think it may also be to use the bees to help keep fruit fly populations down.

    That's my favorite!

    I tried lots of different flavors about 10 years ago at a healthfood store that specialized in such things and orange blossom honey has been my favorite ever since! :D

    I'd like to point out that TRUE honey comes from BEARS and anything in a simple jar is an imitation. Also buying honey in a jar and placing it in a bear does NOT convey the same benefits. It must originate in the bear at the store. My ex wife and I had a long-running argument over this, as she regularly tried to pass off imitation, non-bear honey as real honey.

    The only exception to this is raw honey with the comb in the jar. Which is awesome once you get over the fact you are essentially mealing on a designer candle.

    I will agree with this. I've tried to point out to my girlfriend that bear honey is scientifically proven to taste better, but she doesn't buy it. It's actually come up several times.

    The exception I would make to this is the honey stick. Which I'm assuming is filled with honey from a bear.
