Default Honey Question

Hey,

I had someone give me a few containers of honey that they had a bunch of for use in my next batch of cider. Upon further investigation I realized that the main ingredient is in fact high fructose corn syrup, with regular corn syrup next, and then honey last.

Should I avoid making cider with this? Will it have any negative effects?

Thanks!

I'd skip it and get real honey.
