If you can get a needle course enough and heat the honey to about 100 F maybe the syringe would work.

The vet syringes don't have needles. Just openings. These are the ones used for oral meds on cats and dogs.

Here is a example of an oral syringe. My cat got sick a couple months ago and we were given a syringe that we never needed to use. Now I can put it to good use.

I had one without a needle to squirt food out of my empty teeth holes when I got my wisdom teeth out.  It was so gross.

Empty teeth holes eh?

re: honey sticks ~>   Heating the honey and storing it in plastic (are they plastic or cello?) would not seem the best way to get across the quality in a sample.  But I can see the honey stix flying off the shelves - customers wanting a small, convenient product & surely healthier than the commercial sugary snacks.

To taste the honey why don't you get some of those wooden popsicle sticks and a small baby bear squeeze bottle and squeeze some honey on the stick.  Not much investment, sanitary and people love it.

I think one of the reasons you sell a lot of honey sticks is because they usually go for $0.25 a piece.  A lot of kids have that kind of cash.  :)  And then they get more...
