Honey Stinger Organic Waffles-A Tasty Treat

By Jenn K.

The Honey Stinger Organic Waffles were provided by the manufacturer for the purpose of this review.

Honey Stinger Organic Waffles I could say just one word and end this review; if so it would be scrumptious to describe the Honey Stinger Organic Waffles.  This type of waffle snack has been consumed in Europe by professional cyclists.  And now they are available in a single-serve package by Honey Stinger. All the waffle flavors are certified USDA organic.

I personally would never think of eating a waffle on a ride. A bar, gel, whole foods (fruit/rice snacks) or an energy chew sounds more realistic to eat on a ride. But, after trying out the Honey Stinger Organic Waffles I have a new favorite ride treat.

These waffles have a thin layer of honey sandwiched between two thin waffles. So the center has a slight gooey appearance.  I carried them in both my jersey pockets and a backpack. They fit perfectly in my jersey pockets and only broke in a few places when stored in my backpack. On one occasion I had one stored in my jersey pocket all day on a 10 hour ride and the waffle only partially broke apart. The honey sandwiched between the waffles kept the waffle intact. On warm days the center becomes slightly gooier than at room temperature. However, they taste good no matter how they are stored or transported. Maybe I enjoy these waffles so much because I enjoy sweets. It seems like they have the perfect amount of sweetness and I love the texture.

Enjoying this tasty treat on a mountain bike ride.

The waffles gave me energy (especially on days I began to feel sluggish) on 25-mile mountain bike rides (during the middle of my ride), before commuting home for 30 miles after work and during various times on training rides up to 130 miles. They did not upset my stomach or make me excessively thirsty as some packaged foods do.

My one complaint with these waffles is that I cannot open the package while riding. Yes there are times I only stop to refill water and I will eat while pedaling. The problem with the packaging is that there is no tear notch along the top so I basically have to rip it open along the center package seam.

Chocolate:  A thin layer of honey infused with natural cocoa flavor and sandwiched between two thin waffles.

This flavor is my least favorite. And I was not expecting that since I love chocolate. I just found this waffle to not have a rich chocolate flavor. The chocolate flavor that I could taste was bland. I could taste the honey in this waffle, but that was not enough for me to consider this flavor to be a winner with my taste buds.

Honey:  A thin layer of our classic honey sandwiched between two thin waffles. The honey flavor is the number one selling waffle flavor from Honey Stinger. The honey is by far my favorite flavor. The honey flavor is abundant, but not overpowering.
