A colleague of mine went to Mexico on holiday to visit the in-laws. He came back with some stingless bee honey in a small coke bottle and brought me some because he knows I keep bees.
This stuff was really, really dark. There was the unmistakable scent of honey to the nose. It was thick when I poured it on the spoon and the taste was something completely different to any honey I have tried before. Yes there's the standard "this is honey" base note, but after that it was quite like treacle. Very interesting.

Anyone else had the pleasure of trying it?

I have indeed! Mine came from stingless bees in Malaysia. Taken with a medicine spoon and at a sky-high price (souvenir bought by the wife) for a 200gram bottle.
