Over the past two months, Andre Frieh and other beekeepers near the French town of Ribeauville have noticed their bees turning out honey in unnatural shades — green, blue and dark brown among them.


The beekeepers believe the bees are consuming residue from containers of M&M's candy processed at a nearby biogas plant.

The honey is obviously gross and unnatural, but hey, it looks pretty cool.
