Whether you need pre-, intra-, or post-workout nutrition, or even just a delicious snack, Honey Stinger has you covered.
How was Honey Stinger started?
In 1954, Ralph and Luella Gamber developed the EN-R-G Bar with the goal in mind of bringing “quick energy” to athletes in the form of 2-ounce packets of honey. They wanted to offer a replacement to the sugary candy bars on the market. In 2002, EN-R-G Foods, Inc became the brand we know today as Honey Stinger.
Why is Honey Stinger different from other brands of nutrition?
It’s the honey! All of their products use natural honey to sweeten them and no other artificial sweeteners. Since honey is natural contains the same type of sugar found in fruits, you won’t have any of the stomach issues a lot of people have after consuming similar super processed gels and bars with artificial ingredients.
Not a problem. Honey Stinger has a whole line of gluten-free products. A lot of their products use organic ingredients too and all Honey Stinger products are non-GMO. My favorite are the gluten-free salted caramel waffles!
What kind of nutrition do they offer?
In addition to the waffles, Honey Stinger makes a host of gels, bars and chews as well. The chews are a life-saver during a race. Not only are they super tasty but they are also easy to chew, which is why I choose Honey Stinger chews over other brands like Clif Bloks. The Clif Bloks are so sticky. I’m always afraid I’m going to rip out one of the fillings in my teeth when I’ve eaten them! It’s also hard to breath when you’re constantly chewing and trying to get all the little gummy bits out of your teeth. This is not the case with Honey Stinger’s chews, which remind of the fruit snacks that I loved as a kid.
I love Honey Stinger products so much that I recently applied to become a Honey Stinger brand ambassador and was accepted. I am now part of The Hive! It’s so fun to be an ambassador for a company you believe in and product you enjoy to promote.
If you’ve never tried Honey Stinger products before you definitely should give them a try, and if you have then I have a way of eating the waffles that you need to check out! Take your favorite waffle and place it on the rim of a mug of steaming hot fresh coffee. Let the waffle warm up for a few seconds, and enjoy! This is one of my favorite ways to wake up before a race. It’s soooo good you gotta try it.
