“How can any species have something so delicious and not have a sting?”
The stingless bee’s honey is runnier, sharper, sweeter than other honey – and apparently tastes like nothing on earth. Or so we gather from this movie clip from BUGS. Protagonists Josh Evans and Ben Reade join locals in Uganda in a trip to find the honey of stingless bees. They find it, taste it, and go a bit mad.
“Like squeezing honey out of mud! Like magic mud!” Ben exclaims, hands stained yellow as he pours honey into his mouth.
BUGS the film is currently on release in Denmark with DOXBiO and in other Nordic countries with Doc Lounge. All screenings here.
