My wife got me some Honey Delights hard candy for Christmas. They're made in Canada on Prince Edward Island. Isn't that up around PerryBee's neck of the woods? I wonder where they get their honey?

They're really pretty good. I had never heard of them before. Dried honey is the only listed ingredient. I imagine they could be made at home?

I was just wondering if anyone else had tried them. Or, for all I know, the people that make them might be members of this forum.

If you're curious, they have a website: honibe.com

Sounds cool, but at 105.00 per lb, for pure honey, I think I'll pass this time.

Well, I didn't think a bunch of beekeepers would be interested in buying honey! :lol:

Of course, at this stage of the game, 99 44/100% of things I hear about is new. :o

Hey Greg:

PEI (Canada's smallest province) is just a small(ish) island just off our coast here in Nova Scotia. It is a beautiful place and up until a year or two ago had the world's longest bridge connecting it to New Brunswick (13.9 kilometers) :shock: They have to shut down tall traffic (semis) in high winds!
They produced this candy and won all kinds of awards for innovation and stuff, but up here a small box sells for $10 :o It may be good but I don't know of anyone willing to shell out that kind of $$.

From what I understand they found a way to just completely dehydrate it (honey).

Maybe it's some kind of freeze-dried thing. The method is the secret, I suppose.

I think it's cool! If they can come up with a way to successfully sell honey for $105/lb, more power to 'em! It's gotta be better than any of that corn syrup junk out there.

Do they train the bees to do that? I bet their little wings get tired from all that fanning. :lol:

Sounds kind of like Horehound candy to me. Hey Perry, sounds like candy that wouldn't get in, or stick to your beard. Candy made for Hoary men, check it out. :lol: :lol: Jack
PS. found the word Hoary, while looking up how to spell Horehound. :mrgreen: Never heard it before. :confused:
