Honey Stinger Energy Bar Nutrition

5/5 (2 Reviews)
MSRP : $25.35

Product Description

If you've ever done a 12 hour bike race or a long adventure race, you'd know that gels can only remain appetizing for so long. After a half day of slurping down semi-liquid nutrition products, you'll crave something that you can chew. Honey Stinger Energy Bars "feel" more like normal food, but they offer all of the easy-to-digest attributes of Honey Stinger Energy Gel. Honey is nature's energy food. The bees that produce it have done the difficult work of transforming it into a just right blend of simple sugars that are easily and quickly digestible for us. This blend of glucose and fructose is 1:1 in honey and is the same as the fruit we eat. That's why honey is such a great endurance nutrition product -- it won't upset your stomach as you eat and continue on with your exertion.Honey Stinger Energy Bars are made of at least 30% honey and offer 20% of your Daily allowance of protein along with 22 vitamins and minerals, calcium, and antioxidants. They come in a box of 15 bars and are available in four flavors -- Apple Cinammon, Berry Banana Buzz, Peanut Butter 'n Honey, and Rocket Chocolate.

Strengths:    Tastes good, great power

Weaknesses:    melts in hot weather

Bottom Line:   
If its not melted it gives about an hour of power. I was reluctant to review it because then everyone will use it and I'll lose my edge (but actually I don't have much to lose.) Decided to give back to the bike community by giving this review.

FINALLY! A Freeride specific energy bar!

They have energy bars that help you build your VO2 max, your lean muscle and even loose weight, but the freeride market has been ignored until now. I found these at the super market last week and have been dying to try one. [IMG]http://forums.mtbr.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=593150&stc=1&d=129 ... Read More »
