History of Honey Bear Bottles

Episode 24: Honey BottlesHoney_Bottles_Video_Ep_24

In elementary school, we all learned that bees make honey. And everyone already knows that bears LOVE honey. But do you know how the honey bear bottle was created?

Let's go all the way back to 1957, when the idea for the bear shaped honey bottle was born during a dinner full of fellow beekeepers. For over 60 years, this iconic plastic bottle shape has been one of the most popular bottles in the honey industry.

Did you know? The black eyes and nose you see on the bottle are printed during the manufacturing process.

Honey Bear Bottles

Kaufman Container can supply plastic honey bear bottles in a variety of resins, sizes and styles. PET and LDPE are the most popular so you can easily squeeze the bottle to dispense the product. We have a complete family of honey bears available as the sizes range from 8 oz to 32 oz. You can also choose from flat, offset & slant panel designs to simplify the labeling process and make your brand pop.
