How Many Calories Are in Honey?

I’ll do my best to break it down.

1 teaspoon = 20 calories
1 tablespoon = 60 calories
1/3 cup = 320 calories
1/2 cup = 480 calories
2/3 cup = 640 calories
1 cup = 960 calories

Hope that helps people with different recipes that call for different amounts of honey. This obviously doesn’t include any infused honey, just pure honey with nothing added. Imported grocery store honey might contain high fructose corn syrup, does anyone know if that would add any calories or not?
