GloryBee launched the original 5 flavors of HoneyStix in 1986 with mint, orange, cinnamon, lime, licorice. The idea came from our founder's days of working on a peppermint farm in his youth, and learning about how the peppermint oil was used to flavor gum, candy canes, and other treats. His experiment soon became a success that has won the world over.
The original idea for packaging honey in a straw came from Glen Peters, who partnered with GloryBee's founder Dick Turanski for distribution of his product. Dick suggested that Glen try adding natural flavors to the honey, and GloryBee HoneyStix began.
