Ants in My Honey

Updated on March 28, 2018

The Spoon That was Going in My Mouth

The Queen and The Servants

The Jar of Honey

Hello all, I just thought I would share with you this yucky incident that happened to me this afternoon. Sorry in advance if you’ll be disgusted by the pictures, but I thought I will show it so that you will be extra careful whenever you open a can or a jar.

It’s a nice warm and sunny afternoon in Toronto city. I have had just came back from my son’s doctor appointment. I gave him his lunch.

Then it was my turn. I stood in the kitchen thinking: hmmm, what would I have for lunch? I am starving since I only had a banana for breakfast, ooh I’ll have my favorite bran cereal with warm soy milk and honey. Yum yum.

I warmed up the soy milk, prepared my bowl of cereal, and then I remembered that I was given as a gift two jars of %100 natural honey form Egypt that I haven’t try yet.

Both jars were still sealed. I opened one of them. Now, I love honey that I eat it plain with a spoon. So I dunked the spoon in the jar and left it up to my mouth. Hold on, what are all these tiny black dots? Oh and there’s one big one! I thought maybe it’s because it’s natural so it would have stuff like that. Maybe it’s a good thing. Again I wanted to put the spoon in my mouth, but my yucky instinct kept telling me: no. I looked in carefully, and to my shock, those are ants!!

One big one in the jar and the rest in the spoon are very tiny. It’s like the queen and her servants. I wide-opened my eyes, there they are lying there with the head, the lower part and the small feet. I couldn’t believe my eyes.

YUK YUK YUK!! I WAS GOING TO EAT THEM!!

My appetite got ruined, my hair, my whole body was itchy, and psychologically they were in my mouth, and on my tongue.

I opened the next jar to check if it contains another family of ants, and the same thing. The queen and the servants.

The instant I came back from the shock I grabbed my camera and started taking pictures.

I swear if the store that sells these jars is here I would sue big time.

Now, it’s not like I don’t know how an ant tastes. Due to the fact that I’m a chocolate lover and I would eat it anytime, anywhere and form anywhere, one day when I was a teenager I was studying in the living room and I saw a crump of chocolate on the couch so I sucked on it, but it wasn’t melting and I felt it didn’t have the texture of chocolate. It had a weird bitter taste. I took it out of my mouth and it was an ant :P

There you go. Did you know before now that ants are bitter?

So please everyone just be careful when you open any kind of jar or can. Check it out. And if you see something, do suspect it and double check.

That’s my story for today. If you have any yucky stories that you would like to share please do.

      Same thing happened to me except ants found the honey in my dry storage. I was mad because I just put it in my lime drink. I went on an ant killing rampage. I removed the ants from the honey. Still going to drink my drink and use the rest of the honey after a bit of clean up. Not going to let these ants ruin my expensive honey. I do have the yucks but I am braving though it.

      holy smokes, how on earth did that happen!!! I mean they sold those jars with the ants in them or maybe they weren't sealed enough at their store & ants went inside & lived there for a while, damn that is so graphic... so happy that you didn't eat them... YAAAAYYYYKKKKSSSS

      It's ok Vincent. You just need to check your honey first. and it's better if the honey is nice and clear, not dark and blurry :)

      Really Yuk! But just a thought: maybe these ants are not as bitter as the one you tasted before since they were soaked in honey :0)
