Review: Honey Stinger Chocolate Organic Stinger Waffle

I mentioned previously that I picked up a couple of these Stinger Waffles in an online closeout sale at REI's website.  Because they were at closeout prices, I was able to get them for a comically low price of $0.50 and that comedy (in my own mind) leads me to today's review of this Honey Stinger Chocolate Organic Stinger Waffle.  This review adds to my rapidly expanding review catalog of these products and this one itself comes in at the typical (for them) 1.0 ounce and has 160 calories and one gram of protein.

Ordinarily, most of these look pretty much the same, but this one has a clear distinction in that the coloring is a bit darker because of the inclusion of the cocoa powder that is mixed in with the honey that binds together the two waffle layers.  It's a mild smell of chocolate, but it mixes quite well with the smooth smelling honey.  The whole waffle itself has it's typical hardish shell that breaks and bends easily to reveal a gooey interior of that aforementioned chocolate and honey mix.

Having had many of these before, I expected a soft and doughy chew to this and that's what I got.  I didn't expect a whole lot of outstanding flavor, but I did know that I'd be getting pleasing flavor based on my prior experiences with these.  Well, in the case of this chocolate version, I not only got that pleasing flavor that I expected, but also got something additional as the chocolate in this was delicious.  Mixed with the sweet honey, this was absolutely everything that a guy like me could ever want in a chocolate flavored product.  I'd go so far as to say that the chocolate flavor itself was comparable to milk chocolate and being that I've been a milk chocolate freak since I was a very young child, I absolutely loved that aspect of the flavor.

Buy It or Fly By It?  I can easily say that this was my favorite of all the Stinger Waffles that I've tried out, so it gets a BUY IT rating.  I would go so far as to say it was delicious and my only regret about this review is that my local stores don't carry this particular flavor, because I could see myself buying this over and over and over again.  It's just that darn good and if your stores do carry this particular flavor, I would highly recommend you not hesitate in grabbing one off the shelf to try out for yourself.
