Now I am not normally one to start trouble but a post by the excellent All Seasons Cyclist has made me put fingers to key board. To be precise, the post was about energy bars and ASC was extolling the virtues – and taste, of a bar called Honey Stinger Organic Chocolate Waffle
Now, nothing wrong with this at all but this is an American product and as far as I know, is not available in this country. Oh, we can get the Honey Stinger protein bars from a variety of places but they are not the same as the waffle, therefore I can’t make an informed comment.
It also got me to thinking, is there a UK equivalent to this waffle. Is there something better produced in the UK that will have you blogging about the taste, texture, energy giving virtues that will give The All Season Cyclist pause to taste?
I have a favourite when I am on local runs. I make no apologies in that it’s not an energy bar. I make no apologies that it probably doesn’t boost your speed, stop your muscles cramping or lets you cycle longer. Although it does all that for me I have to say. I speed up when I know I am getting nearer. My muscles don’t cramp as I have to get off my bike and I do cycle longer as I will detour an extra couple of miles to get there. What is it you ask? Our local Doddington’s ice cream. In an honesty fridge outside of the dairy itself.
But to get back to the Honey Stinger, What’s your verdict? Have you a favourite cycling booster food that gets you going? Is it UK produced? Come on folks, let us know!!
