Value honey???? Are the bee's kept in small hives or something???!!!

I'd enter some rant about poor honey farmers.. but I seriously doubt/hope that this product contains anything made by bees.

Why would it not be made by bees? It says on the jar that its a blend of non-ec honeys. The only difference is that its milder than the expensive one's which makes it perfect for drinks.

There's another way to produce honey?

maybe the bees are kept in cages in the dark, or something!

Its honey, it says honey on the jar, on the side it says a blend of non-ec honeys. Its also nice honey too. Just because its a value product doesn't mean its not real.

course its honey!

A quick search on Google defines a 'blend of non-ec honey':

...honey obtained from bees that have had their wings clipped to prevent them from leaving the hive, blended with honey from wasps which is usually used to sweeten animal feed.

Not voted either way as whilst it's obviously a good price, I'm concerned for the welfare of the bees.

Hi Gandalf do you have a source because i'm not finding this on google, thanks.

Non EC honey is just honey harvested from non EC states.

Quoting :
"The country or countries of origin where the honey has been harvested save that if the honey originates in more than one Member State or third country the country of origin may be replaced with one of the following as appropriate –

(i) “blend of EC honeys”,

(ii) “blend of non-EC honeys”,

(iii) “blend of EC and non-EC honeys”;

Always have a stash of this in the cupboard - perfect in Hot Lemonade with a couple of paracetamol to soothe a sore-throat and combat an on-coming cold.
HOT!

It was a (not very good) joke

OK cool thanks Gandalf. The reason I asked is because I was thrown into a moral dilema lol. Glad its not real. X)

I wouldn't touch this as "non-ec honey" may be from underage or scab labour, probably from a country that is not concerned with insect rights. If someone can confirm this is not produced using genetically modified human honey, I would be grateful.

My pamphlet "Tremble Dance - a love of Apidae" gives more information on Apis and their breeding.

Please petition your MP to force an enquiry into Colony collapse disorder. We need answers!

Save the Bee!

A university that has a camera in its beehive in America suffered colony collapse disorder which provided them with a unique oportunity to study its effects on the colony. They also took dead bees and ground them small enough where they could extract protein strands and found that 100% of the bees that had died where infected with a virus and a fungus that are both normal to bees. If its both together that is causing CCD then perhaps we can learn a way to mitigate CCD in the future. Can't be bothered to find the source again and post the link but will if any wants me to.

buggers have put the price back up to 87p
