Well it damn well should be a scantily-clad female warrior that battles radioactive monsters.  Make it so.

neat-o! so, it sounds like kind of a maltose syrup, except would have floral tones from whichever plants originate it? (and looks like they seem to have concentrated on 5 different ones) - so, sort of like the variants of honey, depending on what the beebs are eating?

and, nice, the ut00bz does a (not horribly bad) auto-translate, which is great b/c my Japanese has been getting so rusty.

Japan definitely has some interesting/unique sweeteners, like kuromitsu. mmm... tasty!

video is well worth a watch!

Is kudzu one of them?

I'm a new beekeeper, but have read in several times regarding the unique taste of kudzu honey.

(There are reports of "purple honey" associated with kudzu flowers as well; not sure if valid.)

Tintar and I have a food bromance, I believe, and I recently clued him on to coffee honey (among other things). Not sure how easy it is to have coffee flowers around (my guess is not very), but damn if I don't wanna try some kudzu honey now. I've never seen it and it doesn't appear to be on Amazon japan at least. Bummer, it sounds wonderful!

hrm, I don't recall mention of kudzu/kuzu/arrowroot/pueraria FTFA, but it did not go into much detail, just mainly "ivys (ivies?) and flowering-vines with high sugar content."

I mean, the beebs are just harvesting pollen/nectar from the flowers, right?

these dudes were actually tapping directly into the woody vines/stalks, almost like maple tree sap/syrup. who the heck knew you could do that!

I may have to attempt re-reading the original source website's Japanese article, altho' the rocketnews' version did seem like a direct copy-pasta/translation.

/because this does intrigue me!
//latest one I have, is coffee-flower honey from brazil, and boy is that stuff ever nice

ohai thar!

yes, you did! and yes, we do. in fact I just mentioned it lololol!!! (I didn't want to illegally-summon you, since I already seem to have done that to various farkers far too often - so far without punishment - but who the fark knows about some of these modmins lol.)

hrm, spamazon-US does not seem to have it either, not under any of the various biologetician names.

(also, maaan I am running low on that Momoya taberu-ra~yu, altho' some farker had mentioned she makes her own, so I might gotta look into that nonsense...)

oh! and from that recent-ish ramen broth thread? (yeah, you were there, buddy!) - some jackwagon had suggested "ramen tea" and so now I bought an entire box of the stuff, ex-Korea, off the hamazons.

it arrived but still yet to try it, but I like the concept... in theory. I did run the hot-water machine this morning, but got distracted by other stuff, so I'll need to make more water first.

I mean, they don't get the concept of scantily clad, but it is a start.

also, finally made a cup of that "ramen tea" ...definitely no way my parents-in-law or wife would ever touch the stuff, ha ha ha! and this is only the mild-flavor. which almost blew my doors off. who the fark knows how the 'spicy' will be... (originally I'd thought if it was tasty, I give the MIL/FIL most of the mild and keep the spicy-flavor, but, wow, they call this 'mild'?)
