The Mars factory in Strasbourg, France is wreaking havoc on local honey production. It turns out the used candy coating containers are a bee magnet and the result is hued honey, specifically greens and blues instead of the traditional golden colors. Although it's slightly amusing, for local producers it's been a rough go.
They've seen a dramatic drop in sales because colored honey is currently a hard sell. Local honey producers have met with Mars to put a few countermeasures in places. They now cover all their discarded waste in hopes that will make the local bees a little less drunk on the sweet stuff and instead send them back to flowers where they belong.
