I have another product review for you today! Honey Stinger Waffles!
Just looking at the packaging I knew these would not be the easiest product to consume while running. I opened my waffle and set it next to my treadmill to make it easier to munch mid run. After 4 miles I reached for my waffle, broke it in half and started eating. The honey flavor is really good. Sweet but not too sweet and no artificial taste. The strawberry was good as well. Just a hint of strawberry, not overwhelming. You will need water for these little cuties though. I only ate half a waffle and was chasing it with water several times. I also had to slow my pace in order to not choke or get crumbs everywhere. I did however manage to rub my eye and therefore get a waffle crumb in my eye! Good move Vickie, good move:)
The waffles have 160 calories and are made of all organic ingredients. Unless I have 10+ miles on my agenda I would only eat half a waffle to sustain my energy levels. Overall I liked the product. Would I use it as my “go to” for long runs, probably not. The product is more fragile than gels, chews, or bars, so I imagine it would get squashed if I had it in a runners pouch. It also wasn’t as easy to eat as other products out there. I did like the change though and would definitely throw one in the pre run mix every now and then.
Question of the Day:
Have you tired any Honey Stinger Products? What is your “go to” fuel during a long run?
