it does say blend.  kind of like that KFC stuff you get for your biscuits.
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

Usually they list the ingredient that is dominant in the product first  :-X

Corn syrup and honey , must mean that there is more than 50% corn syrup in this product  :-X

Having % of ingredients would be helpful to everyone.  Could be 90% corn syrup and 10% honey.

What?

At least they are honest and called it a blend. Looks like more corn syrup than honey by the product ingredient list.
