Hmm, the US is a net exporter of honey. The Gov. subsadizes it by buying
up any surplus to keep prices high. It would be strange in an ag state
like OK to see bulk imported honey. I don't see that corn syrup would make
a batch weird either. Its pretty straight up sugar like honey is. It would
mainly just soften the flavor.

Weirder things have happened though...
