What we do

We’re a small family-owned place with two beekeepers. Oh, and a few million honeybees. Tucked amongst the quaint shops in Old Mistick Village, CT; Peddler’s Village, PA, River Place Shops, MI, and National Harbor, MD; Sticky Situations is the ultimate tasting room experience. You’ll taste. You’ll learn. You’ll taste some more. Get your honey’s worth by sampling local honey, artisan-infused honey, real maple syrup and bee pollen from more than 12 bee colonies across the country. Check out the map in the store when you’re here. It shows you exactly where our busy bees have been in the last 18 months.

When you visit, you’ll meet our friendly staff who believe honey is the absolute bee’s knees. Have a question? We can point you in the right direction with a recipe recommendation or a food pairing you might haven’t considered. Yes, with our knowledge, we think we just might give anyone a run for their honey.

Awesome honey shop! The flavors are so creative and so delicious. I'm not sure if it was a special or an everyday thing, but I had the opportunity to taste any and all the honeys I wanted. The staff were very friendly and very knowledgeable and I felt the prices were fair. I will definitely be coming back to stock up.

Love the personalized service. Who knew that tasting Honey or Olive Oil or Vinegar could be as exciting a tasting wine. They also carry Mustards, Pastas and Sauces.  They do ship nationwide.

The moment I arrived their friendly staff explained how to pair the olive oils they sell. You can mix and match what you want and they will box it up for you. They give you many ideas on how to pair their oils with what you are making for dinner. If you need some pasta or meat sauce, they have that too! I purchased some Peppermint honey while there and loved it!
