                                        there's no such thing as "organic" honey in the US Brad.

                                        probably a good idea to know that...

Euphorically fragrant. Like, are we hard-wired as humans to be overjoyed at honey fresh from the hive? I don't even bother with honey that isn't raw and local anymore.
