Bees Make After Eight Honey After Eating Mint Fondant


Offbeat  (tags: animals, environment, protection, bees )

Bees have started producing honey which tastes of After Eight mints after eating fondant because nectar is in such short supply after the poor summer.

After Eight honey, eh? Sounds interetsing! Seriously, though, we should all try to plant flowers that are good for bees.

Sad. We could provide sugar solution that would be better than fondant! What other chemicals are in it?

I volunteered to buy some of the colored honey but I guess it's unattainable. It definitely could have been marked in the United States as a novelty, and this probably could too. I agree we could have done better, but it's tough to know before it's too late that the bees are doing this (they don't have the common courtesy to tell you about it, the little perishers), and it's even sadder for apiarists doing the best they can to suffer financially from their duplicity, and not be financially able to provide better in the future. I would definitely rather buy some honey marketed as a novelty than lose honey altogether.

you would have to provide something that would attract the bees, maybe the scent of mint is the key. Poor bees.

"Yuk" is the word that springs to mind.
Who wants to eat honey made from any source of sugar leaking out of a skip!? I shudder to imagine what other pollutants are in there and who can guarantee that even biological honey is safe in a situation like this.
