This wooden honey dipper is great for those who enjoy eating honey! Its advantage over a spoon is that it is less likely to drip. The honey wraps around it as you twirl it, and it's less messy than using a spoon. Also, a wooden honey dipper is more porous and will take on the flavor of the honey instead of imparting its own flavor to the honey. Wood lasts longer and does not chemically harm the honey in any way, this is why wooden honey dippers have been used for generations.
