    I agree. There are a lot of people out there who want just a little to keep on the shelf. It may sit there a year or more waiting for someone to get a sore throat. It is also may be very good for small holiday gifts and things like wedding favors. At least something is used rather than buying a bunch of trinkets that go straight in the trash. And if they like it, it could lead to a larger repeat customer who would have never bought a larger container to try.

    According to a survey I saw, 82% of households have honey in the house, but the annual consumption is only around 1 pound per year per person.

    Yeah, you got it Chef. I've heard lots of chatter about how you can't make money selling honey - I just sit back and smile at them....

    Is there a label that might fit these little guys? What are you thinking of selling them for?

    Mine are here and my wife thinks they are cute and wonderful. That is more than half the battle!!!

    I'm going to sell mine at the county fair for $1.50 right along side of my regular sized honey. On second thought, I will probably try to put them by the cash register because
    1) they won't find their way into too many pockets that way and
    2) people will see them and go..."Oh, honey. I didn't see the honey"! (hey, they do it to us at the grocery store check-out, don't they!)

    sqkcrk,

    First...I am in a rural area. Even though we are only 45 miles from Houston, this is a different world. I sell my 12 oz. bears for $5 and the 24 oz. bears for $8. That is about 41 and 33 cents per ounce, respectively. (and some complain about THAT!)

    At $1.50 with 50 cents for the bear, that is 50 cents per ounce. Considering the low volume, maybe I should go to $2. each. That might promote "moving up" to the 12 ounce bear for only $3 more. I'd like to go to $2.50, but I know I wouldn't sell ANY at that price.

    Thanks for the nudge, sqkcrk!

    What does everyone else think?

    I am going to a farmers market today with them for the first time. I am still sitting on the fence on the price. I am kind of thinking $2.50 or 5 for $10 or just go with $2. Any less and am not sure it is worth the trouble. I get $5 for 16 oz bears which I think is a bargain.

    I am thinking about them for next year. I was considering your pricing. I'm getting $4/6 oz bear and $8/16 oz bear this year. In town here there is a little resistance to those prices. At work and in Columbus no one blinks an eye! I have had parents buy each of their kids a 6 oz bear for the car ride home!

    I tried them at $2 each or 6/$10 and only sold a few. A lot of people commented on how cute they are but bought the larger size. I think they are more of a specialty item and will take the right person for party favors, etc.

    My wife says that I am selling too cheap at $5 per pound so may consider upping it a little.
