It all began with Ralph and Luella Gamber in Steamboat Springs Colorado in 1946 which is now the largest honey company in the USA. Bill Gamber Sr. Operates and owns Dutch Gold honey and on the Honey Stinger board, his son Bill Gamber is the co founder and CEO of Honey Stinger.
Then in 1954 they concocted their very own En-R-G Bar (En for energy R for Ralph and G for Gamber). They wanted a spin on the candy bars that were on the market. They wanted them to not only taste great but be made of all natural ingredients, with Ralph being a beekeeper they had just that, Honey!
In 1957 Luella and Ralph came up with all sorts of packaging ideas with Woodrow and Rita miller and Honey Bear was born!
They also came out with honey packets that are called "quick energy" which was used by Ralph's friend Roy Phillips head coach at F&M college used the packets as quick energy for his athletes.
They were on to something big but at the time the market wasn't ready for energy foods.
In 2002 they reestablished their brand En-R-G foods with the same goals in mind to provide honey based products that taste great and made with all natural ingredients.
In 2007 Honey Bear celebrated their 50th birthday and was officially named "Nugget ".
Now honey stinger makes all types of products such as protein bars, energy gels, organic waffles, organic chews, organic wildflower honey, and energy bars that come in kid form as well for fuel for all types of activities such as biking, running, and more !
I've came across Honey Stinger products at Wholefoods market and became interested in their products and just had to see what the buzz was really all about I was then sent some of their products in exchange for my honest opinions.
Dark Chocolate Mocha cherry pro:
This bar takes it to a whole new level with ten grams of protein and it's so delicious and tastes just like a dessert, words can't even describe how good it is! It's seriously like a party inside your mouth what with all the yummy flavors mixed together! Ok I'm lying it was creamy from the chocolate with the robust mocha flavor with little pieces of cherries throughout each bite! Great for a post workout snack or when craving something sweet !

Upon biting into this tasty waffle a warm feeling came over me it's like a holiday in your mouth! It tasted like a ginger snap cookie but in waffle form and it was chewy and made the perfect topping on my pumpkin smoothie. The ingredients I blended in the blender was an organic frozen banana, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, a hint of cinnamon sugar and a plain organic yogurt it was so delicious then I topped it off with a dollop of truwhip which is a vegan coolwhip topping and the gingerbread waffle right on top! It complimented the smoothie nicely with just the right amount of sweetness and I looked that the gingerbread wasn't overpowering!
Chewy and lightly sweetened with honey! I topped it off with a few slices of organic banana and a dollop of truwhip and some cinnamon sugar !
