We are huge fans of the Honey Stinger chews and Kalden is a huge fan of Lance so when the waffle came out we had to try one. They are delicious. It is like a pancake with the syrup on the inside. There is not one “energy” food I crave off the bike except this one. I have to keep them at the bike shop so I don’t eat too many here at home.
When we do long rides with Kalden we use the chews and now the waffle as both a energy food and a little incentive for keeping a good attitude on the trail. At least every half hour(sometimes more) we stop for a “honey break.”
Positives: Honey Stinger Waffle:
- Kid approved
Negatives: Honey Stinger Waffle:
- The only bad thing about the waffle is the packaging. While it is nice and compact it is very hard to open without scissors. Honey Stinger has assured me the next run includes a serrated edge for easier opening. Until then “use your teeth.”

Honey Stinger, the leading manufacturer of honey-based nutritional products, introduces a completely new energy product to the US market – Stinger Waffles. Suggested by Honey Stinger co-owner Lance Armstrong, the new Stinger Waffle provides 160 calories of great-tasting, organic energy.
“The Stinger Waffle is an early example of the positive impact Lance has made in new product development,” states Bill Gamber, Honey Stinger co-founder. “He’s a big fan of the stroopwafels he’s eaten while racing in Europe and suggested that we try making some with honey. As it turns out, they’re delicious.”
The traditional stroopwafel, which originated in the Netherlands over 200 years ago, is a waffle made from two thin layers of baked batter with syrup filling. In the Netherlands and Belgium, stroopwafels are sold in the streets and are popular with European cyclists looking for a quick boost of energy.
Rather than syrup, the Stinger Waffle use organic honey and other organic ingredients, making Stinger Waffles a certified USDA Organic product. Each waffle is wrapped individually for easy transport and retails for $1.39.
