3. Honey Stinger Chews
Honey is one of the main sources of sugar in these gummies, providing energy from both fast-acting glucose and slow-burning fructose. So, while you’ll get an immediate boost of energy, it’ll actually last.
Don’t doubt its efficacy either: When cyclists fueled with honey over dextrose—a processed simple sugar found in other artificial energy products—their performance was the same, if not slightly better, according to a study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research.
Honey Stinger’s chews contain 95 percent organic ingredients, which is a plus; but they also contain plant-based carnauba wax, which may upset sensitive stomachs. We like the fruit smoothie flavor (a mix of orange, cherry, and berry). Other standouts include grapefruit and pink lemonade.
