Chewing on honeycomb

Chewing honeycomb has benefits! Honey used to come packed in the original honeycomb – that’s the way honey used to be. A little late on came honey fakers who “extended” their honey by diluting it with corn syrup. For a while, diehard honey enthusiasts only bought their honey packed in honeycomb to insure that it was pure honey with no human interference. Even today, counterfeit honey is big business. An old-timey allergy remedy is to chew some honeycomb to alleviate sneezing, runny nose and watery eyes. Usually, allergy symptoms will disappear within 30 minutes simply by chewing honeycomb. Honeycomb is bees wax with no real nutritional value and yet it can calm upset tummies by chewing it for its mild anti-inflammatory properties. When I was a child we used to chew it instead of bubble gum. But don’t swallow too much of it as large amounts can slow digestion and lead to constipation.

That's the only way to buy real honey IMO!
