Hi,

I have the answer to your query as posted on Past Times Project (in case you've forgotten I quote it below.

The "honey" you remember was actually Lyle's Golden Syrup. The lion depicted the lion in the Old Testament, which was killed and then bees nested in it. The tin of syrup had the scriptural quote: "Out of the strong came forth sweetness."

Cheers!
Fran

And now here is your question as posted:
