Experts warned those gobbling excess amounts of the honey, should think twice as that's when they can experience things such as diarrhoea, stomach cramping, bloating and other adverse effects.
Another concern is the potential, albeit small, risk of botulism for those who try the trend with raw honey, the publication reported.
"It's thought to be fine in adults, but a large load might potentially be problematic," Lisa Young, an adjunct professor of nutrition at New York University's Steinhardt School, told NBC News.
"Clearly, if teenagers are having too much that could be problematic."
Also, there were concerns the sticky substance could hurt people's teeth, cause cavities and pull out fillings.

TikTok — it will always be home to weird, wacky and wonderful trends.
And while it's usually a new dance that tends to go viral, this time people are hooked on a bizarre new food trend — frozen honey.
So, what does it involve? Leaving a bottle of the sweet stuff in a fridge overnight until it becomes thick and gooey.
Then when you squeeze the bottle, a solid-looking shaft of golden honey oozes out of the top before you take a massive bite.
