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.

  • 1:1 fructose to glucose ratio
  • Includes honey as a main ingredient
  • Available in multiple flavors

"It's just honey!"

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Yum. yum!

I've been a skeptic of the whole space-food situation when playing bikes or ultra-running. No more! A friend handed me some of these fine fellows on a recent v long ride, when I was approaching **hangry** and shazam, felt so much better that I went out and bought a box that day.

The viscosity of the gel is just right for slurping down mid-activity. It also does not leave me parched or feeling like I'm eating something only to survive as they are delish!

Tasty!

Delicious!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Honey goes down easy on the bike and provides a quick boost of energy that doesn't upset your stomach. These are perfect for racing.

I got the Ginsting

    Ginsting...? It wasn't bad, but it was very honey'ish. Ginseng? I have no clue what ginseng tastes like. I am not some hippy dippy person who eats that crap.

    This is decent stuff. It is like if some honey bee got into some ginseng and made some honey out of it.

    Keep This Handy

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I always have a couple of these in my pack of gear must-haves when mountain biking and I need some quick energy. I'll have one before a longer or challenging ride as well for a good start. I buy these always by the case before going to Moab for the weekend, and always come home with an empty box (my friends indulge as well). I go for the Gold. *** Questions?

    Exactly What I Was Looking For

      I was originally confused by these and the organic flavored ones and ended up getting the latter in Fruit Smoothie. I'm still not totally sure I understand the difference but nonetheless liked them although that specific flavor was a little too fruity. Gave these a try in gold as a result and they're exactly what I was looking for to keep me fueled while biking/hiking/skiing. Thanks America.

      one and only

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      love these. my friend let me try her GOLD gel on one of our first (running) races, and i just stuck with it. i'm training for the marathon this year and have used it in 5 races so far.

      needs to be taken with water as they are slightly thick and concentrated.

      had a hard time finding them in-stock at local stores, so i ended up buying a box so i wouldn't have to worry about finding them before every race!

      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.
