What exactly is "Honey Sauce?"

You'd think that a package of honey to spread on a biscuit would be just that, honey. But, presumably to cut even more costs in a competitive fast-food market, KFC doesn't actually serve real honey. Instead, it's "Honey Sauce," made from the ingredients many parents try to avoid: high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, and sugar.

Here's the full ingredient list:
  • high fructose corn syrup
  • corn syrup
  • sugar
  • honey
  • fructose
    less than 2% of
  • Caramel color
  • molasses
  • water
  • citric acid
  • natural and artificial flavors
  • malic acid

This makes me really reluctant to try their other biscuit topping, "Buttery Spread." The ingredients aren't listed in this one--who knows what it contains? Probably not butter.

Just another example of "Finding Hidden Candy" everywhere we look!
