RE: Honey: in or out?

I think this question comes up in every kick-start!!
If you are vegan for ethical reasons then honey is certainly out. If you are eating vegan for health reasons, many vegans here have a little honey now and then. It's really something you have to decide for yourself. If honey is the worse thing you consume you'll be doing very well health wise!!
As to whether or not the bees are harmed in the harvesting of honey, like a lot of things, you'll get arguments on both sides. Again, you just have to decide for yourself.
Have you tried pure maple syrup? I don't know what it is you're trying to sweeten but maple syrup can add sweetness and a good flavor.
