Long time no blog! I promise I didn’t fall off the face of the earth. I have been busy with my personal training clients and life. I have been sharing some gluten-free finds, reviews, and information on my Gluten-Free is Life Facebook page. In fact, that is probably the best place to “follow me” to stay in the loop.
Last week I received some samples of the new gluten-free Honey Stinger varieties.
Organic Vanilla & Chocolate Flavored Waffle – This waffle was really good. The outside is vanilla and in the inside is chocolate. The flavors blended well together and were just what I expected.
Inside of the waffle:
Organic Chocolate Mint Flavored Waffle – While I really enjoyed this waffle, there was very little, if any, mint flavor. I shared with a friend who loves chocolate mint anything and she agreed that this waffle was lacking the mint. If you like chocolate this waffle would be a great choice, but don’t expect any mint flavor.
- Honey Stinger also offers 3 more gluten-free waffle varieties:
- Salted Caramel <——My favorite!
- Wildflower Honey
Honey Stinger products can be found in select retailers across the US and online. Please be sure you are choosing the “gluten-free” waffles as they do make varieties that are not gluten-free.

I have been a long-time fan of Honey Stinger Gels and Chews. I use them before or during my runs or long workouts. Many friends recommended the Honey Stinger Waffles as well, but they weren’t gluten-free at the time. Now Honey Stinger has introduced Gluten-Free Honey Stinger Waffles along with a new flavor of Gel and a brand new product: Honey Stinger Protein Chews.
There are three different varieties of Honey Stinger Gluten-Free Waffles (also dairy-free):
- Organic Salted Caramel Waffle
- Organic Cinnamon Waffle
- Organic Maple Waffle
I immediately fell in love with these and don’t know that I can live without the Organic Salted Caramel Waffle. This may be my new go-to fuel for workouts. I can’t thank Honey Stinger enough for making these gluten-free! *It is important to note that not all flavors of the Honey Stinger Waffles are gluten-free. The gluten-free waffles are clearly labeled.
I have liked all of the previous Honey Stinger Gell varieties and this one is no different. The Mango Orange Gel is smooth and not overly sweet or too thick or thin. It is a nice addition to the line-up of gels. All of the Honey Stinger Gels are gluten and dairy-free.
The new Honey Stinger Raspberry Protein Chews are the first of their kind. The previous Honey Stinger Chews didn’t have added protein. These new chews are made with organic pea protein, so they are also free of dairy in addition to gluten. They contain 5 grams of protein per package. There are two more flavors debuting this month:
- Cherry Lime Protein Chews
- Juneberry Protein Chews
The protein chews are tasty, though I was able to detect a slight pea protein taste. This didn’t detract from the product for me, but wanted to mention in my review. I will definitely be buying these again in the future along with the GF Honey Stinger Waffles.You can purchase Honey Stinger products in select retailers across the US or online directly from their website.
