My Honey Forever

Why forever?  Because honey does not spoil.  You can buy it the latest Wii, Ipad, a shopping spree at the mall, doesn't matter.  Honey will take it all in stride and remain its sweet-natured self.  Are you ready for this?  They found honey in King Tut's tomb and it hadn't spoiled.  Crystallized maybe, but still edible.  Wonder who tasted it?  That lucky duck got a helping of the antioxidants which are prevalent in honey, especially the darker varieties.  Plus honey may decrease blood lipids!  It encourages the good bacteria in the digestive system!  King Tut!  Yeah, I knew I was losing you with the health stuff.  Tut!

That's really interesting. And it's good to know that honey doesn't exactly spoil, either!
