Bees at a cluster of bee hives in northeastern France have been producing honey in mysterious shades of blue and green, alarming their keepers who now believe residue from containers of M&M’s candy processed at a nearby biogas plant is the cause.

Some bee keepers in notheastern France found that their bees have been producing honey in shades of green, blue and other colours which are wierd colours for honey.

The apiarist believe that the bees have been eating M&M’s candy residue from M&M’s candy containers at a biogas plant nearby.

So, they now believe this is the reason of the multi-coloured honey.

M&M’s candy is processed at the biogas plant.

I wonder how the honey taste like 😛

Maybe it’s as delicious as the M&M candy!
