"...out of curiosity, why is honey occasionally bottled in bear-shaped jars? Doesn"t make sense to me..." - Harold

According to Citizendium, the practice started in 1957 as soon as Ralph Gamber, future president of the Dutch gold Honey company, was looking for a distinctive honey container and also reasoned the a be afflicted with likes honey, why no a bear of honey.

That"s not set in stone, though. Edward Rachins used for a patent that a bear-shaped bottle several years prior to Gamber. It to be Gamber"s company, however, the popularized the honeybear-shaped jar.

Apparently a effective packaging idea. A survey performed in 1995 verified that some 15.5 percent that the honey marketed was packaged in such bottles.
