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

So good!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use these for backpacking trips and half marathons. I've tried almost every flavor and love them all. It goes down smooth and keeps the engine running - especially when you feel like you're almost out of gas. These are my go-to gels!

Goes down smooth

    After eating too many Gu's in a recent trail ultra race, I knew I needed to make a switch so my stomach didnt turn into a rock and my blood sugar didnt spike from synthetic sugars. After trying out the kiwi strawberry, I decided these would be my new go to. The honey stinger gels go down smooth, taste incredible, and dont make me crash like other gels. So far I am very impressed. The mango orange is incredible!

    HoneyStinger For The Win

    These energy gels do what they say and they give you energy. They taste great and will be buying more.

    first time, won't be last

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    good tasting gel, got the mango orange flavor. not as thick as the GU brand in texture, very similar to the SIS gels. I'll continue to buy these (reasonably priced too when on sale)

    Thank you for the review!!!


      These are delicious and perfect. The Honey Stinger Gels are a great consistency and flavor, making them a great addition to your back pocket for those long rides

      Bulletproof energy

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      As an ultra runner, nutrition and healthy energy is top priority. These gels are really great for just that and I also really appreciate how easy they are to suck down in the middle of a run. A lot of other gels on the market are a lot thicker and harder to get down. These gels are a good consistency and they taste really great too!!

      Go to jel...always!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I use these jels for my road bike racing/training. Ive tried several brands of jel and the taste/texture is perfect in these! The natural ingredients are easy on my stomach and keep me from getting that nasty race gut feeling when you're 3+ hours and 6+ jels into that training ride from hell or leg destroying race. Basically, if you do any sort of gut wrenching endurance activity but don't want your gut to wrench because of your fuel, then choose honey stinger from backcountry and order in bulk.

      Thanks for the review Sterling! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.

      I love it!

        They Actually Taste Good
        Not too sweet!

        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.
