Ever buy something that wasn't what you thought it was.
Something so simple, so routine that you don't even bother to check the packaging.

Well I did, I bought some honey.
BUT, looking at the container, it's not just honey, it's only 35% honey the rest being sugar syrup.
Huh??  What's wrong with plain honey???
So beware of this bear....

He's not a honey bear but a honey & sugar syrup bear!


  1. :) lately i´m obsessed with checking labels. sometimes i wish i wasn´t... ;)
    big hugs rie!

  2. Same cost for less honey. :( The cheats way of jacking up the price. The other cheat is to make the size smaller than it was but leave the price the same. Cadbury did that a while ago. As for honey, Beechworth is yum. Not sure on how much honey content is in it though.

  3. I never knew that either!! And I am quite the label checker.

    We usually buy our honey straight from the producers at the local markets. It always tastes the best. :)

  4. That's awful, I admit I am an obsessive label reader too. I always try to buy our own Tasmanian honey- the Stephens brand if I can!!

  5. Oh my goodness! I'm off to check out my honey pot!
