I notice that most honey appears to be sold in screw top jars and not the twist top, is there any good reason for this?

ask in the spring (30+)
screw top is the older style,the drawback{over the twist cap} is the bigger metal contact with the rim allowing over time rust to form on the rim.not nice.thats why you should have a fairly short sell by date on your honey,the honey stays fine its the lids.
