Chocolate lovers of the world have great reason to rejoice! Honey Stinger has just introduced their new Chocolate Organic Stinger Waffle and you need to try one immediately! While I take a variety of energy bars with me on long rides, my absolute favorite source of carbohydrates has to be Honey Stinger Waffles. Several months ago Honey Stinger announced that they were about to introduce the chocolate waffle and when they went on sale just before Mother’s Day I ordered three boxes.
If you have ever been to Amsterdam you might have had a stroopwafel at the airport or a coffee shop, and the Honey Stinger Waffles will bring back fond memories of that delightful treat. In addition to the new chocolate waffles, Honey Stinger also has three other flavors available: Honey, Strawberry, and Vanilla.
Honey Stinger Chocolate Waffles are certified organic, absolutely delicious, and easy on your stomach. Each one-ounce waffle has 160 calories and provides 16 grams of carbohydrates with one gram of protein. The ingredients list is as follows: Organic wheat flour, organic palm fruit oil, organic rice syrup, organic cane sugar, organic whole wheat flour, organic cocoa, organic soy flour, organic honey, natural flavor, sea salt, organic soy lecithin, and baking soda. All Honey Stinger protein and energy bars are Kosher certified. Three of these waffles will take about the same amount of room in your bike jersey as one Cliff Bar.
As the outside temperature drops Honey Stinger Waffles become very brittle (but they still taste great). The best way to keep these waffles soft in the winter is to put them in a jersey pocket under your cycling jacket. When the temperature drops to below 20 degrees (which is most of the time in the winter) I put these waffles in my jacket pocket along with a chemical hand warmer. When you are riding on a snowy day and pull a warm Honey Stinger Waffle out of your jacket pocket you are in for a real treat!
Honey Stinger Waffles are retail for about $22 for a box of 16 individually wrapped waffles.
