STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (Feb. 16, 2017) —Honey Stinger, the leading manufacturer of honey-based nutritional products, today announced that its line of protein bars will now contain more than 70 percent organically sourced ingredients. With 10 grams of whey protein in five delicious flavors made with non-gluten ingredients: Dark Chocolate Coconut Almond, Dark Chocolate Mint Almond, Dark Chocolate Cherry Almond, caffeinated Dark Chocolate Mocha Cherry and Peanut Butta, Honey Stinger 70% Organic Protein Bars are a great-tasting meal replacement bar and portable recovery snack.

“Honey Stinger has successfully balanced protein bars with taste and function for years, ensuring that our consumers receive necessary nutrients, while guaranteeing superior flavor and texture,” said Rich Hagar, Honey Stinger co-owner. “Building on that success, we are excited to take it one step further and offer consumers our 70% Organic Protein Bars, which is a niche we felt needed to be filled in the protein bar category.”

This shift means that ingredients in the Dark Chocolate Coconut Almond, Dark Chocolate Cherry Almond, and caffeinated Dark Chocolate Mocha Cherry Bars are 70 percent organically sourced, while ingredients in the Dark Chocolate Mint Almond and Peanut Butta Bars are 76 percent and 78 percent organically sourced, respectively. 

Honey Stinger’s 70% Organic Protein Bars (MSRP $2.19 each or $34.35 for a box of 15 bars) will be available for sale May 15, 2017, at select grocers, convenient stores and specialty retail outlets, as well as online through Amazon and www.honeystinger.com.
