(b) No person shall sell, expose or offer for sale any product, compound or mixture of sugars labeled as or for honey, with or without honey as a constituent ingredient, unless the product, compound or mixture of sugars is labeled "imitation honey" with the word "imitation" appearing in letters equal in size to the letters used to spell "honey."
