I think I am at the point in my life where I could consider myself an energy shot/bar/block connoisseur. I’ve tried tons. Mountaineering, climbing, running, cycling, all of these sports leave me starving and needing food on the go. However, new to me were the Honey Stinger Organic Energy Chews, and I’m definitely glad I tried them!
Know that odd aftertaste that seems to come with Cliff Shot Bloks? Don’t get me wrong, I love it. My mind knows that odd aftertaste means calories and energy are shortly on their way. However, I realize that the aftertaste might be a bit of a turnoff for most normal people… The Honey Stinger Energy Chews, in both flavors, completely lack the aftertaste!
Honey Stinger Organic Energy Chews- The good and the bad
- 2 delicious flavors: Fruit Smoothie and Cherry Blossom. No joke, these things taste just like the fruit snacks you ate as a kid.
- To create that delicious taste, the Honey Stinger Chews contain more sugar that competitors, which can be a good thing (more calories) or a bad thing (more sugar) depending on how you look at it.
- Serving size is 1 bag, which contains 10 chews, with a total of 160 calories. This chew to calorie ratio is a bit lower than other brands, meaning you’re going to have to eat more for the same amount of calories. However, with this product, eating more is not a problem! They’re yummy!
- Only one serious disadvantage- the Cliff Shot Bloks come in that great new FastPak, so you can rip the top off, and squeeze them out with gloves on. Honey Stinger Organic Energy Chews come in a baggy, similar to the older Cliff Shot Bloks.
Overall, I was impressed. Definitely tastes better, and doesn’t have that aftertaste that a lot of other brands do. Check it out for yourself!
