Product Description

Honey Stinger Energy Gel packets are available in five flavors; Gold, Ginsting, Banana, Chocolate and Strawberry. All five include pure honey from the USA, water, sodium, potassium, B complex vitamins and all-natural flavors. Strawberry and Ginsting flavors contain kola nut extract which is a natural source of caffeine. Honey Stinger is more versatile than other energy gels. Consume it straight from the packet for a long-lasting boost of energy or spread it on toast or stir it into tea. All flavors also mix well with water to make a natural energy drink.

Date Reviewed: December 7, 2008

Strengths:    Mixes with water

Weaknesses:    Taste, Lack of energy given

Bottom Line:   
I bought one of these after a 15 mile ride and I had to stomach this thing down. It was horrible tasting. It was supposed to be banana flavored but it was just honey. It did mix with water but it was just so bad tasting. If you like straight honey you will like this. If you don't like honey stay away from this.

Bottom Line:   
This stuff is wicked awesome and it's a great company that keeps it real. Honey Stinger doesn't compromise quality for sodium benzoate.

Date Reviewed: August 6, 2007

Strengths:    It is all natural. Tastes good. Must like Honey though!

Weaknesses:    Short shelf life. They need to be consumed quickly as the Honey crystalizes and then it is like eating sandpaper.

Bottom Line:   
Good product, if used as soon as it is purchased. I like carboom also since it is natural too, but does not crytalize like Honey stinger.

Date Reviewed: September 6, 2006

Strengths:    Tastes great, doesn't upset stomach, variety of flavors, gives energy, and the consistency is perfect.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
These gels taste great and do exactly what they should do. There is a little grit in some of the fruit flavors, making them a little thicker, but it actually gives a nice change after eating a few gels.

Strengths:    Excellent energy, long lasting, great pre-race / ride energy source that will no upset your stomach but will give you the long lasting energy to accomplish your goal.

Weaknesses:    More variety in flavors would be great.

Bottom Line:   
This is the best product out there that people have not heard of. If you have not tried this gel, you are sadly missing the boat. Honey Stinger tastes like real food because it is! The flavors are great and you can eat bunches of it without getting tired of the flavor.

Date Reviewed: January 3, 2004

Strengths:    Works as advertised. 5 flavors. Relatively inexpensive.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Tastes good and works well. I have one about every hour of riding and it keeps me from bonking. Before I tried these I could ride about 2 hrs before starting to feel tired. Now I can go for 3.5 - 4 hrs and still have something left after the ride is over. If you buy 12 or more Honey Stingers,or any combination of energy product, at REI they are only $1 each.
