Usually they list the ingredient that is dominant in the product first  :-X

Corn syrup and honey , must mean that there is more than 50% corn syrup in this product  :-X

Having % of ingredients would be helpful to everyone.  Could be 90% corn syrup and 10% honey.

At least they are honest and called it a blend. Looks like more corn syrup than honey by the product ingredient list.
