Royal Jelly is an inventory item that can be found as a token around the map, received as quest rewards, or redeeming valid codes, or purchased from various shops or dispensers. When used on a bee, it turns it into either a Rare, Epic, Legendary, Mythic or a gifted variant of one of those bees.
The probabilities are a 70% chance of getting a Rare, 27% chance of getting an Epic, 3% chance of getting a Legendary and a 0.004% (1 in 25,000) chance of getting a Mythic. There is also a 0.4% (1 in 250) chance that using a royal jelly results in a Gifted Bee, and a 0.02% (1/5000) chance a royal jelly results in a mutated bee.
Royal jelly does not necessarily turn a bee into a better rarity. For instance, if players use it on a Legendary bee, they have the same 70% chance of getting a Rare bee as if they had used it on a Basic Bee.
As of the 4/17/2019 update, royal jelly tokens are back to their original spots.
Methods of Obtaining
There are many methods to obtain royal jelly.
- Completing Brown Bear's quests rewards one or more royal jellies along with other items. Other bears and Onett give royal jelly less frequently.
- Completing Black Bear's Diamond Egg, Star Jelly, and Mythic Egg quests rewards one or more royal jellies.
- Completing Spirit Bear's quests often rewards multiple royal jellies. The amount generally increases with each further quest taken.
- There is a Royal Jelly Shop near the Red HQ, where players can buy a royal jelly for 250,000 honey initially. The price increases by 2,500 honey each purchase until capping at 1,000,000 honey.

Arranged roughly in order of minimum bees/items required. Not all possible methods are listed here. For example, almost any place that can be reached using the Yellow Cannon plus the parachute can also be reached using the Blue or Red Cannon plus the Glider.
- No bees are required:
- 5 bees are required:
- On a bamboo shoot in the Bamboo Field (Parkour starting between the Bamboo Field and the Spider Field. Alternatively, parachute/glide down from a suitable high spot).
- In the blue ramp near the Bamboo Field (Enter the tunnel either by walking along the ledge toward Blue HQ or dropping down into the area between Blue HQ's roof and Science Bear's platform. Alternatively, jump up from the Bamboo Field using enhanced jumping ability).
- Enhanced jumping ability OR the Parachute/Glider are required:
- On a hill behind Brown Bear (If players can, they could jump up from in front of Brown Bear; otherwise, parachute/glide down from a suitable higher place, such as the roof of Blue HQ).
- 4 blue bee types discovered are required:
- Upstairs inside the Blue HQ.
- 10 bees are required:
- Parachute/Glider plus 12 bee types and 10 bees are required:
- On the big dandelion in the Dandelion Field (Use the Yellow Cannon and then the parachute/glide. Alternatively, if players have 15 bees but not 12 types, parachuting from the front of the Lion Bee Gate can also work).
- On top of the Noob Shop, near the wall next to the Clover Field (Yellow cannon and parachute/glider).
- 15 bees are required:
- 15 bees plus 4 red bee types OR enhanced jumping ability are required:
- 15 bees plus Parachute/Glider are required:
- On top of a tree in the Pine Tree Forest (Using the parachute/glider, parkour along the white cliffs starting near the Polar Bear. This one is much, much easier with the Red Cannon and parachute/glider, though, so don't waste too much time falling off cliffs).
- At the end of a dark tunnel above the Pro Shop - it's the one players can tantalizingly see, but not reach when they're doing the parkour for the royal jelly above a pine tree. (Parachute down and around from the ramp to the Lion Bee Gate. Make sure to start by jumping up, and make as small a circle as possible onto the roof of the shop. Alternatively, if players have 25 bees, walking off the edge of the Mountain Top Field onto the Pro Shop works).
- 25 bee types are required:
- On top of the Mountain Top Shop (Use the Red Cannon, then try to land on the top of the shop. Also, it’s much easier if players use a parachute or glider).
- Behind the Onett statue on top of the sixth beehive (Use the Red Cannon, then deploy the parachute once players are high enough up to curve back around to the top of the hive. Alternatively, players may be able to reach this one with the other cannons + Parachute + perseverance, or jump from the top of the Puppy Bee on the ticket tent with enough speed and jump power).
- Need 30 bees plus at night:
- On top of the 30 bee area in the front of Bubble Bee Man (Parkour starting at the right of the big platform from the entrance where Onett and the lid are on there).

Other uses of Royal Jelly
- 10 royal jellies each are required for crafting blue extract, red extract, oil, enzymes, or glue (Not just royal jelly is required, other ingredients are required depending on the crafting item).
- 100 royal jellies (and 3 glitter) are required to craft a star jelly.
- 3 star jellies, 3 neonberries, 3 purple potions, and 6 tropical drinks are required to craft a super smoothie.
- 10 and 25 star jellies, along with other items, are used to craft the Petal Wand and Petal Belt respectively.
- Event bee jellies have infinite uses; as long as the hive does not already have that bee, players can use the jelly.
- Sun Bear gave a hint about the Royal Jelly on top of the Ticket Tent in his dialogue.
- When players are transforming any bee with a royal jelly, the number of exclamation marks after the bee's name is the same as that bee's tier. Rare = 1 exclamation mark (!), Epic = 2 exclamation marks (!!), Legendary/Event = 3 exclamation marks (!!!) and Mythic = 4 exclamation marks (!!!!).
- Using a specific jelly on said bee (eg. using a Bubble Bee Jelly on a Bubble Bee) does not use the jelly, and no transformation pop-up appears.
- Event Bee jellies can't make the bee gifted even if it was gifted before.

- Using a normal jelly on a gifted/mutated bee is almost CERTAIN to cause the bee to lose its gifted/mutated status. It is a 1/250 chance to get a gifted bee back and 1/5000 chance to get a mutated bee back. However, the bee will most likely have a different mutation.
