Bees in France recently began producing strange colored honey. The amber-colored honey inexplicably turned green and blue. Investigators discovered that the bees had been eating the candy coating from uncovered outdoor vats at a nearby waste-processing plant!

The vats have since been covered and beekeepers are hoping the honey returns to more normal colors.

  • Wow, that is crazy that the honey started changing colors! Definitely not good. I know I need to start eating better. We’re doing it in baby steps; we’ve been eating at home for dinner most nights now. Just need to work on it for lunches and breakfast.
