Oh Honee, Honee!

If you are a fan of the ABC show Shark Tank (or Mr. Wonderful, ha), there is a good chance you saw the vegan honey brand, Bee Free Honee®, on an episode that aired in February.  They were vying for the opportunity to snag a deal with one of the esteemed sharks and (spoiler alert!)...they not only made a deal with 1 but 3 sharks!  You go, Glen Coco!
