    The honey could still be used in honey-containing products that would
    not show it's color. Products that claim to have honey, but only
    contain microscopic amounts just to claim that they contain honey.

    I saw that this morning on the news. I think there's a cool
    packaging idea floating around somewhere, or there should be.

    Did you notice the article said the colored honey was "not marketable"?

    We saw it mention that one idiot said it wasn't. The reality is it may
    not be at the consumer level, but it certainly would be at the prepared
    food level as was noted here.

    The current mistake batch is kind of a purple hue-- what you get when
    you mix all the colors together. And we haven't created the 'weird
    colored honey market yet.

    Now that they see it can be colored, someone will feed the bees just
    red, or blue, or chartreuse-- and sell it as 'naturally colored
    honey'.

    Then some chef on the food network will cook something with it, and
    all the TV foodies will have to have some.

    With all the troubles with current bee population it's probably best
    not to screw with the colors of honey. Especially since bees see
    colors differently than humans. Especially red. If honey were red
    then the bee offspring wouldn't be able to see it and may not eat it.

    Note that I wasn't saying it was a good idea-- I just think it will
    happen.
