In France, bees started producing some colourful honey – blue and green, actually. Seems they gained unauthorized access to a biofuel ‘plant’ which was firmly rooted in the green concept of converting left-over candy pigments from a nearby Mars factory’s M&Ms shells into energy. Who could resist? The biofuel plant has tried to stop the neighbourhood bees from pilfering the yummy M&M ingredients by keeping trash containers covered and windows shut.
Although the stuff tastes like honey, the unfortunate beekeepers aren’t allowed to sell it. Their honey is tainted by artificial dyes and processed sugars the bees sneaked home. Sure, it is perfectly acceptable to feed the same stuff to children as candy, but they made the beekeeper dump the M&M honey. I guess it protects the brand, but it is still sad for those beekeepers.
