(Steamboat Springs, Colo.) July 22, 2014—Honey Stinger, the leading manufacturer of honey-based nutritional products, is pleased to announce that its Organic Energy Chews have been named to Backpacker Magazine’s Hall of Fame in the “Camp Food” category. Backpacker calls the products selected for its Hall of Fame “the best bars and snacks [we 've] ever tasted.”

The Hall of Fame recognition follows two other recent awards for the company’s honey-based products. Honey Stinger’s Organic Energy Chews and Organic Energy Gels were recently recognized in the Women’s Running magazine “Run Yummy Awards” as most “tummy-friendly” and “best overall,” respectively.

“Our Organic Energy Chews have become extremely popular among consumers and athletes from all walks of life,” said Jenn Shea, Honey Stinger’s national sales manager. “The Backpacker Magazine Hall of Fame award underscores that our products are ideal for fueling the efforts of backpackers, climbers and thru-hikers as well as more typical endurance athletes.”

Honey Stinger Organic Energy Chews are available in Lime-Aid, Pomegranate Passion Fruit, Fruit Smoothie, Cherry Cola, Pink Lemonade, Orange Blossom and Cherry Blossom flavors. Honey Stinger Energy Gels are available in Classic Gold, Classic Ginsting, Organic Acai & Pomegranate, Organic Fruit Smoothie, Organic Vanilla and the recently introduced Organic Caffeinated Strawberry Kiwi and Organic Caffeinated Chocolate flavors. These two new Organic Caffeinated Energy Gel flavors were introduced in addition to the new Gingersnap Organic Stinger Waffle in May of this year. Honey Stinger will be showcasing these new products, in addition to their existing line of honey-based energy products, at the Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City on August 6-9.
