I never use corn syrup, no matter what calls for it, because I have an extreme sensitivity to it, hfcs or otherwise. I substitute Golden Syrup or Cane syrup for corn syrup. In amny cases, although honey has a similar viscosity, it's a completely different product and may not produce the desired result. I would go with Cane Syrup, which you can actually make yourself by cooking down sugar and water.
