Also note that if after taking these factors into consideration the remarkable condition of a body seems beyond explanation, for someone to interpret this as a 'good' sign (a religious miracle that validates their faith) is but one interpretation. Historically speaking, in many parts of the world, any bodies appearing unnaturally well-preserved were cause for concern and immediately hacked to pieces and burned to make sure they never disturbed the living. It was seen as a curse, or evidence of demonic power or a vampire, NOT a miracle to put on display or house at a local parish

Whether it's been done or not, 'candying' a body using honey is actually plausible. Honey has long been used to preserve bodies + in the last thousand years there's been many popular 'corpse cures'.
To me, the highly unlikely part is that whatever substance a vendor was waving in front of someone (and making such claims about) was actually created in this fashion.
