I did pretty well with my entries. All five got blue ribbons and three got big purple "Best of Division" ribbons. I also got a creative presentation ribbon for my chunk honey entry for a grand total of nine ribbons for my five entries. Rather than just have three uniform pieces of honey comb in the chunk honey entry I did "I Love Bees" using a letter "I" , a heart, and two letter "B"s in the respective jars. It didn't turn out as well as I wanted as the heart floated to the top of the jar so that it wasn't as readily apparent that it was a heart. The pollen entry also got a best of division ribbon, but then it was the only pollen entry. I have to admit that my main motivation for doing a pollen entry was not particularly pure. The honey judge is a personal friend. I knew the judge didn't care for the taste of pollen and he would be required to taste each pollen entry. The pollen is tasted to make sure it has the proper texture and isn't over dried.
