Description

Honey. The original goo.

For centuries we've eaten honey and known it as a ready-made source of quick energy. The fact is: the bees that make it do all of the work in terms of preparing it into a blend of simple sugars that is readily absorbed by our bodies. Honey Stinger Energy Gel relies on honey as a main ingredient for this very reason.

Honey Stinger products are great during intense endurance efforts for another reason. They have a 1:1 fructose to glucose ratio -- the same as the fruits we eat. What this means is that during hard exercise, Honey Stinger Gels won't upset your stomach, leaving you thinking less about your race and more of when can you get off the bike and find some relief. The gels are just right if you're looking for the quickest form of energy. They go down quick, are delicious, and are more quickly absorbed into the bloodstream than any of Honey Stinger's products.

Honey Stinger Energy Gel comes in a box of 24 gel packets. Each Energy Gel packet is one serving and contains 120 calories. Honey Stinger Energy Gels are available in an assorted flavor pack or in five distinct flavors -- Banana, Chocolate, Gold, Ginsting, and Strawberry. The Ginsting and Strawberry gels have 32mg of caffeine from kola nut extract to give you a little extra sizzle right out of the gate or after a few hours on the bike.

not buying again

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm a big fan of chocolate, but the chocolate honey I can't handle. And the gel is thicker than any other I've tried. I'd recommend GU or Hammer Nutrition over this stuff. Other flavors may be better, but I'm not going to buy it to try it- a free sample I'd give a shot though

YUM, Honey!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are sooo good (well soooo good in terms of an energy gel anyway). The Honey goodness is so much better than other artificial sugar rich gels from other brands. It may not sound like much, but the 20 or so extra calories in these really make a difference when you desperately need the calories, and a 90 calorie gel just doesn't pack the same punch. I would like to see a more complex electrolyte profile, but that's not really what this gels main goal is. It's quick energy when you need it, with natural honey that's actually easy to get down.

NOMNOMNOM

These are pretty darn good for gels, the worst of the robot-foods in my mind. But they certainly give you a perk, and not that crash you might expect. And unlike some of the others, I don't dread eating them. In fact I look forward to it. And if I'm feeling crazy, I squeeze some onto a Honey Stinger waffle.

Pretty awesome

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

...But, not nearly as effective as the new Huma Chia Seed Gels. They're all natural, have fruit puree as the first ingredient, and don't make my stomach feel weird going down/shortly after. I think it will be big. Plus, they're so damn tasty.

HONEY SHOT

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are seriously as good as eating honey right from the comb! Sometimes it could be a little too intense so i recommend not swallowing until you take a squirt of water and mixing it up. You will enjoy mother natires natural energy in this convenient little pouch!

Could be my new favorite

The flavor of this is not pretty good, at least I don't consider it to be offensive. I like the texture. Its very thin and easy to get down. I love Clif shots, but sometimes have to chase them with half a water bottle to get the thick gel down. The energy the provide is good, I don't notice much difference between any of the major brands. I do find that these can be a bit more expensive than other brands in stores, but a box on BC is pretty reasonably priced.

Definitely an acquired taste

First tried on out on a hot, sweaty run -- and gave the box away when I got back. The honey taste is just too much in those conditions -- fruit-flavored stuff just seems to go down better. On the other hand, that one pack I did choke down did seem to do a good job of keeping me going, so if you like the taste it's a great choice.

bananas

Got the banana flavor, and it's actually pretty good. Still mostly tastes like honey, but with a hint of banana. A lot like banana runts actually. I was hoping these would give me a huge turbo boost of energy after eating one, but so far I haven't really been able to tell much of a difference. Then again, I'm not racing or anything. I'm sure it must do something, right?

Taste Is Interesting, But It Works

I went the chocolate flavored direction on this and it certainly is more honey than chocolate, but still pretty good. What I found intertesting is that it worked more than decently when it comes to supplying energy.

To further explain, I am a more anaerobic individual when it comes to my work. Which is saying whatever I do (run, bike, ski, etc.) I go all out, 100%, at all times. So, when I am on my 4th straight day of activity, the body begins to break down and I found that I could get more out of this gel at those times than the normal gels. It doesn't outdo the caffeine addled ones, but the only thing that would beat those out is human edible rocket fuel.

Acquired Taste

The first Honey Stinger Ginsting I had I almost threw up. But I had bought a box so I wasn't going to let them go to waste. On my second race with these I had become used to them and was able to put three down successfully. They do their job at preventing bonking and i like the taste a little better than Gu.

They are honey so they consistency is a little lighter than the Gu. Like most gels try and make sure you finish every last drop before you throw it in your pack or in your bike shorts or you will have honey all over your stuff.

Better than the rest, almost

As others have said...the honey taste outshines other gel "flavorings". It has to be the honey.

The thickness is a slight issue in cooler weather. But that is the same for all.

I prefer the banana, myself. It is tasty but doesn't linger.

Honey Stinger Energy Gel

These taste like honey, obviously! What that means is, they go down a lot better than a gluggy gel when you need to slam it down in a real hurry! I try to avoid gels where possible, but with 20km to go in a race, I love to get one of these Honey Stinger Gels down to give me a great little energy kick.

Gag me with the wrapper it came in

My hat goes of to all of you who found this product "edible". Seriously makes me wanna toss my cookies. We have bees here at my house that was NOT honey. I know it's not trying to be honey exactly, but it's still disgusting.

Gelicious!

By far the best tasting energy gels I've tried. Great for triathlon's or long runs/bike rides when you gotta fight the bonk.

TASTES GREAT..!!!

I tried my first Honey Stinger Gel today. The strawberry honey combination tasted great and gave me instant energy. What really impressed me was the consistency, it was thinner than most gels making it easier to eat while running. A great product that I look forward to using again and again and again..!!!

Great gel

These carried me to the finish the Leadville 100 run this past year. Great tasting, easy to eat, even after eating them straight for 24 hours. My only gripe is that there is not a gel with caffeine yet...Even so - Great tasting - would recommend them over everything else.

Responded on

the Ginsting and the Strawberry both have 32mg of caffiene; the Gold and the Banana have none...

Gel that gives you a kick in the pants.

Sure, the energy part gives you a kick, but when you first try the Honey Stinger gel (gold flavor) for the first time, if you've been raised on the typical gels, this stuff is surprising. Its a little thicker than others I've used such as Gu an PowerGel, but its flavor is a welcome relief. The Gold flavor tastes just like pure honey.

Love The Gold!

The Gold, Ginsting, and the Banana are my favorites; the Strawberry is pretty good, too, and I love the caffiene kick from that one...

No one has mentioned the chocolate yet in their reviews. I tried it because, well, I tried all of them. Not sure what it was about the chocolate and honey combo, because I like both of those flavors, but it was not good. I don't think it was just me, either, because I couldn't give those things away.

I find some of these reviews hilarious. "It tastes like honey." IT *IS* HONEY!

And for those asking about caffiene, the Ginsting and the Strawberry both have 32mg of caffiene; the Gold and the Banana have none.

works like a charm

as if the other 20 positive reviews aren't enough, lets just say i would usually run solo without any form of energy supplement that is. The first day i used this i ended up running a bit farther than i ever have yet, the "ginsting" sure helped with that extra push we all need for that final stretch..
