It's still better than much of the processed foods, fast foods, and other junk food out there.

Hell, "soy milk" should technically be called "soy juice", as the drink didn't come from a mammal, but it was named as such to give it a healthier sound.

Escargot is snails, and it tastes like eggs dipped in garlic butter (the ones I ate did anyway, but they were the cheap kind.)
Caviar is fish eggs
Calamari is squid
Tripe is cow stomach
... and it's all yummy. Go out and have new experiences. I don't understand people who don't like trying new things.
Escargot do not taste anything like eggs!

And I beg to differ, but caviar, calamari, and tripe are all super-gross! However I'll stick by the bee vomit.

Actually milk is cow sweat. Now there is an image. Honey is molten sugar. Not much more. Honey in milk is considered a sleep aid. This probably has more to do with amino acids in the milk than any properties intrinsic to honey.

I never thought of honey as bee vomit, and I still like it even using that description. However, a couple years ago I tried taking bee pollen as a vitamin supplement---sprinkle on your cereal or just eat a spoonful from the jar, add to a smoothie, whatever.

I couldn't do it! Something about eating that just turned me off. It didn't taste bad, it didn't look weird or anything. But I just couldn't eat the stuff.

I ended up throwing the whole bottle out.

I don't like my honey over a hot dog, over some toast would be better though.

Beer, wine, and spirits are all at least part yeast excrement. Vinegar is bacterial excrement of yeast excrement. Pickled anything is bathed in it. Sauerkraut, kimchee, tempeh, miso, yogurt, most cheeses, dried meats, breads, etc. are all inundated with microbial excrement. Many people find these things to be delicious. Most, if not all, are beneficial and nutritious to both body and soul. Bee vomit is just another wonderful product of nature. If this scares you off, you're missing some really great stuff. Oh well, more for the rest of us...

Actually, it should be called cooked, processed, flavored, salted, sweetened, chemically emulsified, soybean slurry.

What a ridiculous thread. People have been enjoying honey for centuries. Get over it. It is here to stay no matter what it is. Geez.
