I don't think many people how much sugar we really consume on a daily basis. You could say we're addicted to it, and we crave it when we have any for a while.

A bigger concern for me is in the collection of honey itself. Barring you obtaining access to a bee keeper suit, I can't think of any way to harvest wild honey that wouldn't involve either killing the bees or getting the daylights stung out of yourself. Considering I and many others are alergic to bees, and that bee alergies are one of those things that you can suddenly acquire after years of having no adverse reaction to previous stings, I'd think twice before suggesting anyone in a survival situation or an area of limited medical care try to harvest their own honey.
