is milk and honey a good conductor of electricity???

milk is a good conductor of electricity and honey is bad conductor of electricity

Honey is a poor conductor because it is made largely of sugars called fructose and glucose and some water. Conductors of electricity need mobile electrons or ions to carry the charge and sugars do not have either one. Milk is a good conductor of electricity because it contains water and acid. And water becomes a good conductor of electricity in presence of acid. So due to presence of water and lactic acid in milk, it is good conductor of electricity.

No , but sometimes milk also conduct electricity as it sometimes contains some amount of acid . But honey donot conduct electricity as it do not contain any type of acid , base or salts

The presence of lactic acid or lactate in milk is due to the fermentation of lactose caused mainly by lactic bacteria. 
Generally speaking, just-milked milk does not contain lactic acid,
but this increases after a while and its concentration is closely correlated to the total bacterial charge.
Assuming it is not freshly milched milk  contains Lactic Acid.
Since it also contains mineral salts, milk electrolyses very easily and form ions. 
This facilitates the flow of electrons  and  hence milk becomes a good conductor of electricity.
