Honey is the only food that never goes bad.
My grandfather and great grandfather were the Royal Beekeepers to the Tsar.
I can take it or leave it.

It is not "vomit" as you may be envisioning it. The bees have a specialized "honey sac" (which is separate from their "food stomachs")

I remember watching some reality tv show and a rather, ahem, unintelligent girl referred to eggs as 'chicken abortions'


I can't remember a time not knowing how honey was made. I've always gone through phases of liking it or not liking it which has nothing to do with how it is made (I go through the same phases with peanut butter). At the moment I don't really like honey except for Acacia honey which tastes more syrup-like than honey-like.

Honey is a natural product and it is good for many things.
