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 our unique honey flavors, real maple syrup, honey mustard, honey butter, and bee pollen from our very own honeybees! Our hive travels across the country to pollinate more than 50 family farms, from Orange Blossom in California to Peppermint in Connecticut. Check out the map in the store when you’re here to see where your favorite honey came from. 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.

Our honeys, oils, and vinegars are all available on our website if you can’t make it in-store. You will find traditional offerings, as well as new products like our “mashups” if you are feeling adventurous. The pasta is the only item we don’t make ourselves, it is imported from Italy and is only available in-store, so we hope you have a chance to visit us at one of our locations!

Visited from Colorado while on vacation, I am a honey lover and my wife is salad, oil lover. This store had so much to pick from and so many flavors we both loved it. They even had a tree you could eat honey out of. And for those who are flying they offer delivery on every item in the store so you dont even have to travel back with your items. Great stop while visiting mystic village

Home of the best, homemade, local honey, honey mustard, vinegar, and oils! The experience alone is worth a stop, let alone the amount of delicious products you will take home!

I dropped by Sticky Situations yesterday to check out their flavored honey selection and was not disappointed! I tried quite a few flavors along with my husband and we decided on the Key Lime honey and the Chipotle honey.... They have bundle deals and also offer other products aside from honey like tea leaves, maple and apple syrup and their sister store (located in the same building) Extra Virgin has pastas, flavored olive oil and flavored vinegars that are also available for sampling prior to purchase. All the associates were very helpful...
