Illinois Woman Tries Honeycomb For The First Time [VIDEO]
We've all wondered what honeycomb tastes like after watching bees collect it all summer long. I found some honey comb in Illinois and tried it!
I used to wonder what bees are actually doing inside their honeycomb to make honey. It's kinda crazy after I looked up the process...
"Honey starts as flower nectar collected by bees, which gets broken down into simple sugars stored inside the honeycomb. The design of the honeycomb and constant fanning of the bees' wings causes evaporation, creating sweet liquid honey." [Honey]
Then, I realized I've only ever eaten honey and never an actual honeycomb.
What does it taste like? Is the comb edible? Wait, where can you even buy honeycomb?!
From Raines Honey Farm, I bought honeycomb, two honey sticks, and hard honey candy. They had so many different items, like soap and Chapstick, too.
Instead of just trying the honeycomb, I decided to document my first time ever eating it for TikTok. And yes, you can eat the "comb" aka the beeswax!
Honestly, my overall feelings: it was delicious and I'm still eating it like a sandwich right now. It's definitely not a texture majority of people would enjoy, but I do love honey!
If you ever have the chance to try pure and raw honeycomb, you should. It took me 26 years to finally gets my hands on it and I'm so glad I did.
