Are you tired of energy and recovery snacks that are chock full of nutrients but have a chemical aftertaste? How about those “natural” snacks that taste like dirt or gravel rather than nuts and fruit?
Are you one of the growing group of riders with gluten intolerance? Have you been told to chew your nuts thoroughly?
In my opinion, Honey Stinger produces the best tasting products out there; thoughtfully manufactured to meet your cycling-specific nutritional requirements.
Organic Energy chews (Gluten-Free)
These chews are delicious with one gram of tapioca protein in each package. They are gluten-free, dairy-free, with no GMO ingredients, 0 g trans fats, and no partially hydrogenated oils. Their sweet taste comes from honey– pure and simple. They taste better than gummy bears and come in a variety of flavors, including caffeinated Limeade. Pomegranate Passion is my favorite. They are softer and smaller than many other brands and leave no weird aftertaste. Plus they don’t stick to your dental work. 160 calories /1.8 oz package.
Honey Stinger protein bars are gluten-free (but are made in a facility that processes gluten although they claim the lines are meticulously cleaned in between production runs), and contain no trans fats, over 30% USDA certified organic honey, 10 grams of whey protein – 20% of the daily recommended allowance, 22 vitamins and minerals, calcium and antioxidants.
Classic Energy Gels (Gluten-Free)
Energy Bars (Contains Gluten)
Waffles (Contains Gluten)
If you’re not gluten-free, then you may want to try these individually wrapped, waffle-like cookies which come in a variety of flavors (Honey, Vanilla, Strawberry, Chocolate, Lemon). Nobody else makes a product like this and and my own family raves about them.
Honey Stinger products can be purchased at REI and Performance Bike Shops (waffles and gels only). Or you can order them directly from their website at http://www.honeystinger.com.
Good news–they now accept paypal.
