Product Review – Honey Stinger Waffles

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get an energy food company to make a product that tastes like one of your favorite foods? Well, if you’re Lance Armstrong, you can. You see, Lance was a big fan of these waffles that professional cyclists in Europe eat, and so he asked Honey Stinger if they could come up with something like that, and, being the nice people they are, they did. The result is the Honey Stinger Waffle. It’s organic and is available in honey or vanilla. I won a box of the honey flavor waffles from I Run Like a Girl’s blog! One waffle has 160 calories, 7g fat, 21g carbs, 14g sugar. I ate one before my track workout Wednesday and another before my swim Thursday. It’s a bit sweet but makes a nice change from gels.

Lance keeps his waffles in his back pocket. I'm not sure why but Honey Stinger feels this is good to know.

But I’ll tell you what. If Honey Stinger offered to make moi an energy supplement (after all, I am European), I wouldn’t ask for a stinkin’ waffle. Nope. Much as I like the waffle (and I do) I am tired of sticky sweet supplements that are either fruit or chocolate or some sort of dessert flavor. So you know what I’d ask for? Roast beef, potatoes, peas, carrots, and gravy. Nothing like enjoying your Sunday dinner and a run/ride at the same time. Talk about multitasking.


  1. I’m with ya! Fish taco chips and salsa flavor please.

  2. Bacon, or Carolina style pulled pork…I’ll run for miles.

  3. Found the waffles at Spokes, Etc in Ashburn today!

    Cheese and onion perhaps? Beef? Prawn and Worcestershire …these waffles, I found were unpalatably sweet as well…I agree someone needs to make savory energy supplement.
