Bought these to test for nutrition on long bike rides training for a half Ironman and have not been disappointed. Easy to digest while on the bike, not heavy like some energy bars but more substantial than gels. Cut them in half and put them in a snack (not sandwich) bag and they are easy to get to while riding from a bento box. Also makes a great post ride snack with a double espresso! - Jim I.
The inspiration for Honey Stinger Organic Waffles was imported from Belgium where Dutch riders often ate these syrupy, chewy waffles on long training rides...commonly known as Stroopwafels. Honey Stinger decided to bring the concept to American athletes, and their iconic waffle was born.
Delicious wild honey sandwiched between two thin, crispy waffle wafers is the perfect treat. They are certified USDA Organic and come in a convenient single-serve package.
We often turn to these waffles when we need something lighter and a little easier to digest compared to an energy bar. These waffles have a similar nutrient profile to chews or gels, but have a chewy texture for a change of pace. Not to mention, honey is a great source of carbohydrates for during exercise because it contains two types of simple sugars for faster absorption.
If you get tired of gels and chews or have stomach issues from them, these are a great option to try.
