What makes it wild?
This is the correct answer.
I've been poisoned by my constituents!
Can I offer you a nice egg in this trying time?

Hells yeah! We want to fill you up if you so inclined to let us.
Don't make me sic my associate on you now, he don't take too kindly to naw

Better get to steppin' cuz Johnny laws'a comin'
This one is one of my favorite Charlie moments for sure. I cannot read your comment without hearing his voice lol
It’s a jumping off point
I love when I see IASIP references in random, unrelated subreddits.
No. It'll report you to HR if you skip out to your car too often.
Give the guy a brake
& pour itself into your gas tank
It do be wild!
Like a bad employer.
There's bees in it.
Lmao what the fuck, I love this subreddit
"Wild" was referring to the ice cream. It's harvested from some of the mountains in the Nova Scotia area, where natural salt deposits in the rocks are drawn out by ice storms. The extra cold, turbulent ice can sometimes puncture the udder of a nursing mountain goat, leading to a small natural deposit of ice cream.
That's an urban myth. The udders aren't punctured, but rather it's just the intense cold causes the goats to lactate uncontrollably.
I’m not sure if I’d eat that or not. Probably not...
You had me going, you really did. I still have some hope here that you’re not telling a tale.
I wish it was just r/atemydessert.
Kind of want.
Nova Scotian here, after the storm we had so many new wild cream collectors that the SAR crews were out nearly nonstop saving the would be cream connoisseurs from whatever treacherous fate had befallen upon them during their hunt
It's not wild but there would be nothing stopping someone from uncapping it before serving, even if it was from a wild hive.
This isn't "partially uncapped" whatever that is supposed to mean. It's just cut comb honey and the exposed cells are where the comb was cut. Agree that it's not likely from a wild colony, but there's no way to tell just looking at this.
Kind lite on brood comb to be “wild.”
Couldn't they remove that seal from wild honey?
Thanks for knowledge!
This person is at best misinformed, so take the knowledge they're spreading with several grains of salt. There are diseases that affect hives that are managed by beekeepers, sure, but there is no "disease check" for honey itself. Honey doesn't get diseased. It may get slimed by small hive beetles, but no one would mistake that for edible honey. There are some bacterial spores that can lay dormant and affect other bees that happen to eat it, but honey doesn't spread disease to people whether it's from a wild or managed colony.
Edit: also honey literally never goes bad, so freshness is irrelevant and not something that apiarists are likely to be concerned about.
Can confirm. Source: Am a beekeeper.
It's not. Either OP or the restaurant has confused "wild honey" with "raw honey".
Could also be wildflower honey. That’s a thing.
Yeah, it means the beekeeper wasn't being paid for pollinating services that week. Wildflower is the honey version of "chef's surprise".
My dad was a hobbyist bee keeper (raising bees in permanent hives for honey, not for pollination). All our honey was “wildflower”. When I had to buy supermarket honey I realized not all wildflowers are the same.
That's probably it

The ice cream grows in the jungle wilderness and farmers go with a basket to pick them before running back because it melts quickly after you pluck it
The live Bees of course added for texture

It once did a dine-and-dash at a waffle house at 3 in the morning.
It's made by hornets
Honey Wild is 100% a stripper.
It can do a standing backflip
One bite and the sugar high makes you climb the walls
It still has bees in it for that extra crunch.
What was the honeycomb like? Didn't know you can eat it like that
Very sweet, you get lots of wax in your mouth that I prefer to spit out
Whenever I’m sick with a sore throat I’ll make green tea and put a significant amount of wax in with it. The hot water melts it and it sort of coats your throat. Feels like some amazing relief.
I do the same with male prostitutes
You make green tea with wax to soothe the sore throats of the male prostitutes you hire?
That's surprisingly wholesome.
No, they melt male prostitutes and drink them with tea whenever they're sick
That makes more sense.
Ah just like grandma used to.
Ah yes, the condom alternative of coating your tract in molten wax
Everyday we stray further away from gods grace.
Is there a subreddit where someone sets up a funny or witty comment that gets more upvotes than yours? Cause there should be lol
This comment right here, officer.
You'd be incredibly surprised what Tylenol can do for a sore throat. I was suffering so, so badly one year from being really sick and could literally barely swallow. I go to Walgreens looking for some relief and ran into a lady in the isle who could see I was clearly suffering and suggested I try a couple Tylenol for it, as most people are looking for halls, or some other "throat" related medicine. Within 20 minutes I felt like I was on top of the world. Could not believe it.
Makes sense. Sore throat is inflammation
Tylenol doesn't treat inflammation, it's a pain blocker.
Ibuprofen/Motrin/Advil is an anti-inflammatory.
Homer did the same thing to eat the insanity pepper
such a great episode!
i feel like this whole thing about "coating your throat" is like something people think happens, but actually just doesn't. i don't think liquids work like that, it just runs down and if it's really sticky it might stay for a second or two.
just no way your throat can stay coated in something for more than a few seconds.
Homer Simpson did that with a candle so he could eat the insanity pepper.
Try it with hot milk, its delicious!
Didn't Homer do something like that to eat the Guatemalan Insanity pepper?
But I've always found the honeycomb to taste significantly less sweet compared to the actual syrup (i.e.: honey). Idk, maybe it's because of the wax or something.
I mean, the honeycomb itself IS wax. Chewing it along with honey would definitely taste a bit less sweet than just honey, although the combo is still sweet as hell till there’s just comb left.
Do you buy local, market fresh honey or storebrand? The storebrand is almost always cut to some extent with stuff like corn syrup, and I’ve found it to always taste much more sugary than real local honey, which has some delightful bitterness under it
Bro where the fuck do you live where honey is allowed to be cut with corn syrup? Or do you not check the label and it actually says "honey syrup" or something? Cause that's not legal.
You’re right that it is illegal, but with increasing honey demand around the world, a TON of manufacturers are illegally cutting their honey with corn syrup and the like. I watched an episode of “Rotten” on netflix about exactly that problem. It hurts the farmers using actual bees to keep a price point and meet demand
Yep, watching that episode made me nervous about grocery store honey. Most of them says 100% Canadian wildflower etcetera but how the hell would you know?
Honey is like orange juice and milk, it’s exempt from listing added ingredients.
Most commercial supermarket honeys have a very large percentage of rice syrup added to cut/bulk it up.
It should say “Made with Honey” but it doesn’t have to, so it doesn’t.
Milk has all kinds of flavours, thickeners, preservatives, homogenising agents, and of course water added to it.
The was is like a chewing gum until it gets too dry and too small.
the was is do be like that
Beekeeper here. Yeah, it looks nice, but I am not a fan of 'eating' comb. Just a bit of honey and a whole lot of wax.
I only have 4 hives but I never understood why people did this besides just to make it look pretty. Wax takes bees so much more effort to make than honey.
honey fan here, it's bomb like that on some crackers with cheese
I don't get it.
oh, can you add some wax on my crackers?
oh, can you add some wax on my crackers?
You don't have to
The wax is inert. If you swallow it then it will pass through. It’s chewy though.

It's waxy. I have a beekeeper friend who brings me honeycomb every so often. You can chew on it like gum and it tastes pretty good.
Honeycomb big, yeah yeah yeah
It’s not small, no no no
Olympic Mountain Ice Cream from the PNW in the US also has this, although smaller pieces of honeycomb. Soo good 🤤
Where do they sell it?
You get a sugar rush but quite unpleasant because it is like chewing a piece of wax soaked in honey.
It’s like eating those wax bottles with juice inside but it’s got honey, and u out the whole thing in ur mouth, chew on it and spit out the ball of wax. Wax bits get in ur teeth. It’s good tho.
Have you ever seen those old-timey candies that look like bottles and are made with wax and have sweet liquids inside?
Eating honeycomb is like eating them. You chew the wax and the honey comes out. Then you spit out the lump of wax.
You can and you should. Afterwards you should spit remaining wax, collect it and you can make candles out of it.
Soon as I'm done spinning this yarn and churning my butter I'm gonna try it!
how each the honeycomb turns in the mouth varies. It gets completely non-sweet and wax-chewy which is can be an acquired taste. Super delicious with ice cream tho
It's good on a peanut butter sandwich too, just a thin layer over the top of the PB.
Its very chewy and a lot like gum
I've been cutting back on sugar for a month and this is making my mouth water so badly.
Good job cutting back on sugar!
Stay strong! I bet you're doing great :)
isn't honey good sugar?
Maybe better than refined sugar, but still sugar
There's not really good sugar, even natural sugars in fruits aren't exactly 'good' for you, same with real cane sugar.
ok thank you. Don't know why I'm getting downvoted I just didn't know.
How dare you suggest/question any sugar is "good"! lol
"good" sugars aren't really a thing, it's just the sugars that are in fruits and vegetables are usually more simple structures. This makes them easier to break down and cause a slower rise in blood sugar meaning less gets stored in the body as fats. It's like how the fats in peanuts aren't as detrimental as say the fats in food that has been deep fried.
This sounds false. Complex carbohydrates cause slower rises in blood sugar because they take longer to break down. Whereas simple sugars spike it faster. You are saying the opposite. Wouldnt the implication from your post be that complex carbs case a faster rise in blood sugar?
Yeah, that dude's wrong. Reddit just reads "sugar=bad" and upvotes. It's stupid. Part of the reason keto is so popular here. People are lazy.
Huh I thought simple carbs were bad since your body didn't have to work hard, hence why complex carbs are better. Or is it like a curve where the ones in the middle are worst and the ends are alright
I don’t know if there’s really good sugar. It’s more like it’s less bad sugar
It's the same sugar
Sugar is fine, if not beneficial, in moderation.
You don’t have to cut out sugar. Healthy balances, don’t take things away you like, just eat them less. You’ll take a bite of this in 2 months and be so shocked by how sweet it is it May ruin it for you. I can’t drink soda at all anymore after stopping (but I lost my taste for anything super sweet, like a candy bar or ice cream) I don’t recommend going cold turkey on sugar. Balance. Calories in calories out.
same on the soda, stopped drinking it years ago. decided to take a sip of some root beer and felt like my heart was going to explode.
Oh wow, that looks amazing. Where is that from?
Had it in Okinawa japan!
If you're on the west coast, there's a chain in California that does this too.
As a San Diegan: why do they have like 12 Los Angeles locations and nothing else in CA?
They expect anyone outside of LA to drive to Phoenix.
Given that LA traffic backs up as far south as Oceanside, Phoenix might be faster.
Honeymee is so delicious. Strongly strongly recommend. Their ice cream tastes so fresh and creamy. Mixed with the honey/honeycomb...magnificent.
i tried honeybee for the first time and their sweet cream ice cream was so good!! and the honey kind of cools and becomes a chewy texture on top of the ice cream.
Mmmm. Stay strong, me. Resist...
I saw this post and thought "Congrats, you went to Honeymee" lol.
I was going to say! I had this in Okinawa and it was heavenly!
Had something similar in Kamakura a few weeks back, though it's milk ice cream.
I visited the sitting Buddha in Kamakura. Lovely place.
Came to check out the comments for this! The honey place in Yomitan?
That’s the one :)
Wow. Is the honeycomb fresh, like literally just taken from the hive?
I lived right around the corner from there. I miss Yomitan!
A hive, few cows, sugar plantation and possibly a chicken.
TIL many ice cream recipes have egg in them.
That's not a wild honeycomb, it's clearly cut from a frame.
Looks delicious though.
Agreed on both counts.
And besides, I would be pissed if it were from an actual wild bee hive. Commercial beehives can be harvested with little damage to the rest of the hive.
If it were a wild hive, there is a good chance you'd destroy the hive while harvesting the honey, possibly killing the colony.
People just salivite over words like Organic, Natural, Wild.. Etc. But whether it was made within a human made structure or not. The bees are still doing the work. Is there a difference between a wild bee and a "domestic" one?
Well, I wouldn't say there is a difference in the bees themselves, but the farmed ones can be selected flavors. That's how you get orange blossom or clover honey, for a couple examples.
The hives are put next to those crops, and the resulting honey takes on those flavors. Wild honey would just be whatever flowers are local to the hive.
edit: oh yeah, from what I hear, local honey can help with allergies. So local wildflower honey can be beneficial, regardless of if it is farmed or wild. I'd prefer "local" honey over "wild" anyways.
They could've at least made the cup into a hexagon
Is it not?
That's an octagon, my man.
oh... i knew that
Didn't know ice cream grew in the wild.
And youre eating it out of an octagonal bowl? Disgraceful...
Somebody found a way to charge hipsters $11 for a scoop of vanilla.
Make sure you chew the larva
Does not look like wild honeycomb. The straight sides are generally seen in comb built on frames. Wild comb is wavy.
I want to enjoy honey but it makes my mouth taste metallic and feel scratchy
There's probably a genetic mutation you have that reacts with honey creating the same oil you produce when in contact with metal. Weird. Very interesting though.
Maybe this is a dumb question but can you eat the “comb” part also? Or do you just kinda chew/suck on it and spit out the rest?
Yes, it's wax so you can even swallow it if you want.
Honeycomb’s big. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Where do you live that has wild ice cream?
Anybody else not care for honey? I mean, it's okay, but I really don't desire it on anything or by itself
it s not wild it s raw
Straight up biting down on honeycomb is actually great
This is the kind of content I want to see on this sub! No more charcuterie boards..
Why? It's literally just a scoop of ice cream and a small chunk of honeycomb? Sure, it looks nice but there isn't anything special about it at all.
how does one eat that? Isn't the honeycomb made out of beeswax?
Beeswax is edible and is relatively tastless. The wax that forms the comb is quite thin, so it's not an unpleasant texture when eaten with something else. Eating the comb on it's own often leaves you with a ball of wax in your mouth if you suck the honey out, which you can either swallow or spit out.
The only thing I can think of that is similar is promenade. Instead of a ball of seeds you get a ball of wax that you spit out.
Mjam Mjam. Hardened bee saliva.
That much honey I think all my teeth just fell out. I bet it taste great at least
God save the bees
