Summit Daily News – High Gear: Honey Stinger Bars 7/26/2017

Being a part of the Honey Stinger Hive has some privileges. A few months ago I got an email from them about feedback on their new snack bars and I was stoked to test them out. I usually use the Honey Stinger gels, chews and waffles to great success, and I am always down to try something new, especially from a brand I trust.

Snack bars vs. the rest

The snack bars come in four flavors: Cran-Apple and Walnut; Nuts, Seeds and Roasted Serrano; Peanut Butter and Jelly; and Super Fruit and Ancient Grain. Ahhh flavor — how we long for it. Subsisting on gels alone makes one long even more for something real, while balancing out what you bring to eat on the trail can make for a brighter day. Packing a sandwich is one way, but I don’t always stop long enough for a real lunch.

Snack bars make for a great on-the-go choice. If you’ve been doing this for a long time, you may have an aversion to bars after pulling one from your jacket pocket that’s rock-sold and frozen on a winter day.

Well, these bars aren’t like that. With honey and tapioca syrup as the binder, these bars hold together well and don’t get hard like some, but they also aren’t sticky when you’re handling them. This keeps your hands from sticking to the inside of your gloves.
