Near the town of Ribeauvillé, beekeepers got an unpleasant surprise : the bees have started producing… blue honey !

It turns out the bees have found a pile of waste from a nearby chocolate factory. While this honey should be ok to eat, French beekeepers say that they cannot sell it.

Can't sell it ? You need more marketing : "Dark honey.That's so emo". Or : "Black honey, by Philippe Starck".
