Take out your heavy-bottomed pan and add the golden syrup, water, sugar and honey. Use a wooden spoon to stir all your ingredients together.
Place the pan over low heat to allow the sugar to dissolve. Continue to stir the mixture with your wooden spoon to keep the mixture from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Turn the heat up and dip a confectioner's thermometer into the mixture. Wait for it to reach 132 degrees Celsius while you continue to stir.
Keep the mixture at this temperature for at least 15 minutes, adjusting the heat as required.
Pour the baking soda into the mixture and beat it with your wooden spoon. Transfer the mixture into a lined baking dish and allow it to cool for at least 2 hours.
Place the hardened candy into a non-fluffy cloth and break the candy apart using a rolling pin.
