We don't know who set up this "honor stand" by the side of the road in Kaua‘i, but discovering it was a highlight of our recent travels. The local honey was richly flavored and well worth the cash we put in the box. Beyond that, we also appreciated knowing that the honor system still exists. This isn't something we normally see at home in the big city, but we wonder (hope!) it is alive and well in other parts of the world. Have you ever bought – or sold – anything from an "honor stand"?
Note: If you're looking for this particular stand, it's off Kuhio Highway/56 in Kilauea, a little south of Banana Joe's Fruit Stand (also worth a visit). The offerings may vary; on another occasion we noticed a sign for coconuts rather than honey.
