Honey Stinger Organic Energy Gels - 24-Pack

Bee energized.

After so long, there's only so many granola bars and energy chews one person can handle. So the next time you don your cycling jersey or head out the door for a long trail run, make sure you reach for the Honey Stinger Organic Energy Gels. Designed as an alternative to the chalky and chewy, this energy gel quickly replaces those essential electrolytes lost when embarking upon high-output, athletic adventures. The Organic Energy Gels feature a tapioca syrup and as a result is certified gluten free for folks who have stomach sensitivities and gluten allergies. Meanwhile the organic honey and added electrolytes ensure that you're able to keep crushing and avoid Bonk Town, and the small-sized packet allows you to stuff the gel into your jersey, hydration vest, or backpack pocket with ease.

  • Avoid Bonk Town and keep crushing with this energy gel
  • Organic honey and electrolytes ensure maximum energy
  • Certified gluten free for folks with allergies
  • Small size easily fits into a variety of pockets
  • 24-pack with multiple flavors to keep things fresh

tastes good!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

very similar in taste and texture to SIS Tropical flavor... more liquid than GU (still my favorite).. nice for variety.

Tastes like cough syrup

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: fruit smoothie

I got the fruit smoothie after reading one of the previous reviews. I was excited to try it and when I ate one of the gels I thought that Honey Stinger used a cough syrup recipe to make the gel. FYI, fruit smoothie is horrible unless you like cough syrup.

They actually taste good

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Unlike many gels these are actually enjoyable to eat.

taste great, feel great

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

these taste great and seem to do the trick energy wise

Great Gooey Gel

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The vanilla is my favorite! What I like about these are less viscous than PowerBar Gel's so they work better in colder climates.

Go to Gels

    These are my go to gels, I'm celiac and these are certified gluten free. The vanilla and chocolate are my favorite flavors.

    Works well

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These really do give you a boost of energy. Like, they actually work, it's crazy. I especially like the Kiwi-Strawberry because the flavor tastes great and it has a little bit of caffeine for an extra boost. I try to have a couple of these in my pack for longer rides to keep me going, Definitely worth it!

    Good Taste

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Fruit smoothie tastes good and provides nice boost during a break on the trail.

    Don't Stop

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I don't like eating heavy food when out riding and doing cardio so the gels mixed with the chews are my favorite way to fuel up during a ride. The flavors are all easy to handle but the vanilla is my preferred flavor, not too sweet.

    Honey stinger for the win.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I am a fan of all Honey stinger products and the gels are no different. I love that are a honey based product. I do my best to eat healthy and fuel with healthy food which can be difficult on long rides or runs. Thankfully Honey stinger is offering a more natural based product that actually taste really good too. I have never had any stomach issues with honey stinger products either.

    Mid Ride Boost!

      These are perfect for that mid ride boost! Always usually carry one and like the mango flavor.

      Taste Great

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I almost always carry one of these on a ride as backup energy. Really enjoy the fruit smoothie flavor. Work great for quick energy.

      keep on keeping on

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Honey stingers are my go-to when I need a pick-me-up on the trail without wanting to stop for a picnic. They are easy to toss in my bag and have an my leisure, plus they taste great and since I'm not a huge bar person this is a much more enjoyable experience for me. Here's to getting a little gas in the tank and allowing me to charge a little harder for a little longer.

      I make Rod Stewart jokes while ingesting

        "Do you think Rod Stewart liked the flavor?"

        People tell me it's an urban legend and not true. I don't care. It happened.

        I can't look at a Gerbil without thinking about Richard Gere either.

        The Acai wasn't too bad. Gel shots just suck when you take them and making a little joke helps the process of getting it down.

        I'm a sucker for gels, these are my #1!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I've always gone in for the convenience and efficiency of energy gels and they have certainly come a long way! In my opinion, Honey Stinger has put them over the top. I have yet to experience any stomach discomfort or ":::That's::: your idea of _insert flavor here_?!?!?" reactions with Honey Stinger gels.
        As others have mentioned, the consistency is lighter in comparison to other gels which makes getting hem down less of an effort. The flavors are a big plus as well: no surprises with honey and the chocolate is remarkably like a chocolate you would actually choose and enjoy, rather than a soviet-issued chocolate-like concoction that you have no choice but to "enjoy".
        The fueling aspects are predictable and reliable. Follow the instructions and drink plenty of water when consuming them (like any gel).
        My un-solicited advice is to stick to the advised "every 45min", and follow the endurance training/racing mantra "eat before you're hungry, drink before you're thirsty!".
        You should of course consult your Physician/coach/guru/mom when designing your training nutrition long before you listen to me though : )

        The perfect re-fuel

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        The Honey Stinger Organic Energy Gels are great for providing sustainable energy on long runs or bike rides. The fruit smoothie flavor is a nice addition the the natural honey flavor- not too overwhelming so you can have several gels over a period of a few hours.

        love the viscosity and flavor

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        too many gus are too think or too runny, these are perfect and have great taste. Love the caffeine as well

        Taste really good

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        I normally don't like any of gel packs because they taste awful and leave a funny aftertaste. I picked one of these up in a few different flavors just because I was doing some extended hiking and wanted to save on weight so I could get the extra miles in with my compressed time schedule.

        I was surprised at how good they tasted. It was like eating really good honey. No nasty fake flavor or aftertaste. I have already ordered more and will be keeping an eye out for when they go on sale to throw in my pocket while climbing multi-pitch routes.

        all you need

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        have you ever dreaded taking down a gel while on a ride?
        well with these gels you dont have to dread having them, they taste soo good, and dont leave a nasty taste in you mouth. if you want quick energy that has a good taste, get these!

        Energy Gels, amazing fast fuel!

        So many times we all eat bars and chews for a snack, but when you're actually burning at a super high pace, nothing has compared to Honey Stinger's products, especially Energy Gels.

        Honey Stinger is a rad company that started from their beekeeper grandparents, who in the 50's, started the EN-R-G Bar and 2oz honey energy packets. The majority of their products are USDA Organic and have very simple natural ingredients.

        The Energy Gels have been best used in my activities when I can't stop to eat something substantial. While on recent attempts to break a climbing speed record in Yosemite, it occurred to me how awesome it is to have a fast acting and easily digestible fuel source like the Energy Gels.

        From my own personal experience, they are perfect for biking, swimming, climbing, running.. basically any and all high intensity activities/sports that require nonstop movement.

        On my speed ascent I bring a small nalgene and one Gel with me, 1 hour into it while running down the decent trail I can squeeze in the fuel and can immediately feel the energy and power return, giving me the strength to keep it up 100%.

        Both Strawberry Kiwi and Fruit Smoothie are very tasty and offer different benefits (S/K containing caffeine). They digest easy and don't require a gallon of water to wash down.. cough.. Clif Bar.

        These are the only flavors of HS Energy Gels I've tried, while I also have two of every HS product including their Organic Honey, none disappoint!

        You can eat these as a tasty snack, and you'll love'em! But bring them on your next adventure and see how well they keep you fueled and active!

        Energy Gels, amazing fast fuel!
