French beekeepers in the town Ribeauville noticed their bees started producing blue, green and red honey this summer and they couldn't figure out why. Turns out it was bee-cause the lil stingers were eating the waste from an M&M factory.

I'd be willing to try it, how much worse than GMO can it be? And are we going to get rainbow milk now too?

Thanks Carrie for the link to the article. "Rainbow Honey" will be the next big thing I bet. :~)

Love honey so this unusual blend might be a real gourmet treat me thinketh.

Good question 'human being'...if so, I'd bee-willing to give that a try also !

Nancy M. , I'm guessing that maybe Whole Foods and maybe even Costco have their orders placed as we type and read these comments. As long as the bees aren't turning rainbow colors themselves. the way that M&M's cause when they accidently melt in a humans hands, I suppose it's an ok thing.

I would think M & M "waste" would still be safer than fields sprayed with pesticides!:)

I agree Yvonne. M&Ms are basically sugar.
