    Re: Koehnen Packages

    East,

    Did you mean Sue Cobey?

    I've been misspelling her name as Coby for years. Dr. Carson finally got it into my head how it is spelled.

    Re: I never thought pure honey could taste bad

    Karo is a corn syrup sold in the US. I think it still comes in light and dark colors.

    There used to be many other brands, but it is pretty much Karo now and a few store brands.
