Get The Smaller Raw Honey Bear
The Absolutely Delightful local Phoenix honey I purchased nearly 4 years ago in Phoenix took a long time to finish. And I used a butter knife to get some of the final dabs out of the bottom of the bear, but couldn't get to the contoured recesses. So this morning, lacking any fresh berries to put on my yogurt, I cut the head off the bear with an old serrated steak knife. After the partial decapitation, I was able to scoop out the final 1/4 teaspoon dabs of golden deliciousness.
I doubt I will ever get another BIG BEAR of raw honey again. The honey separates over time, slowly, precipitating the waxy solids to the bottom, which are too viscous to flow out of the head-mounted spout. The little bear can be consumed in a reasonable amount of time (less than 4 years me thinks) and if any solids precipitate out, they'll be able to be reached and extracted without resorting to decapitation.
(and yes, that is my new Mac, which carry around the house (weighing less than 2 pounds as it does, and no thinker than 2 or 3 issues of Science magazine) as I prepare food during my work day - very convenient, since FM radio doesn't carry very well in mountainous Orange County CA)
