How NOT to market honey
« on: June 21, 2008, 10:22:28 AM »
Found this on BeeSource.

................
While visiting a friend over Memorial Day weekend in Petoskey, MI, I found myself in a Walgreens. I stumbled across a display selling Barry Bee Honey. (http://www.barrybeehoney.com/)

Where do you suppose it was located in the store? Among what other products? Check it out:

On Pleasure
Kahlil Gibran
....
And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy.
People of Orphalese, be in your pleasures like the flowers and the bees.

unfortunately that really does not surprise me what a shame.
they at least should have put it in the entertainment section next  to the movie as a marketing tool or something.

I clicked on the beesource link and got a computer worm warning.  I cancelled the link pronto.
