The simple beauty of Sweet as Honey was never supposed to be. You see, Brian started out to make a very different flavor, called Hundred Acre Wood. It was an homage to Winnie the Pooh made from a sweet cream base with pieces of honeycomb candy and organic gummy bears. Brian absolutely loved it, but most people complained that the gummy bears were too hard to chew in the ice cream. But Brian kept on—chewing, that is. The thing is, the gummy bears do work; you just have to leave them in your mouth for a little bit, to warm them up. Finally Brian relented and took out the gummy bears, and Sweet as Honey was born. And it continues to be one of our top ten sellers. (If you want to make Hundred Acre Wood, add 2 cups of gummy bears with the honeycomb candy.)
