Review: Honey Stinger Organic Waffles

Amazon had a $5 special on the Honey Stinger Organic Waffles, so I ordered a box to try. Each box of 16 costs about $20, so these cost quite a bit more than Clif bars, which usually come in at $1/bar. To make up for that, they're lighter, but also have only 150 calories per serving than 200.

Surprisingly, these aren't very sweet. The packaging, however, is finicky. While I can open up a Clif bar and eat one while cycling, I couldn't possibly open up one of these and eat it while cycling. In fact, the waffle is so crumbly that you're almost certainly going to lose a percentage of those precious 150 calories to crumbs falling out of the wrapper when you try to eat it. They're lighter, so it all comes out in the wash since you can carry more of these than Clif bars.

Neither Bowen nor Boen like them as much as Clif bars, or Honey Stinger gels. I don't think I will  buy any more, because of the crumbling problem. I cannot imagine that these will survive any kind of bike tour, or if they have to share a jersey pocket with almost anything else.

Not recommended.
