Back in 2012 I was bikepacking the Colorado Trail. After a lengthy time above tree line on what would be considered not bike friendly singletrack we descended down Kokomo Pass towards Leadville. We arrived at a beautiful waterfall that many of you have passed. My partner and I needed to refill on water and put down some calories. Rummaging through my top tube bag I pulled out a Honey Stinger and a Justin’s peanut butter squeeze pack. I would soon have a realization while combining the two to make a mouthwatering experience to remember. Here is a simple guide, enjoy! IMG_1205 First you must buy a Honey Stinger Honey Waffle ($1.50) and a Justin’s Honey Almond Butter 1.15 Oz pack (1.35) this will total $2.75 + applicable sales tax. Then you need to wake up in the dessert overlooking a beautiful canyon or anywhere next to your bike.

Knead the Justin’s to properly mix and warm the nut butter and honey. IMG_6738 Next you unwrap your Honey Stinger Waffle and open the Justin’s packet. IMG_6741 Then…you guested it, disperse the honey almond goodness on the waffle. IMG_6742 Spread around with the Justin’s packet, and lick remanence from packet. IMG_6745 Look at the beauty and devour the 350 calories while the sun warms you up. IMG_6748 Yummmmmmm IMG_6747


  1. The last step is to try and figure out if the Justin’s dribbled down the side of your mouth and, if so, clean if off. I had a Justin’s Stinger this year while soloing the Rabbit Ears “Divide Trail Epic.” I ran into hikers and workers on Steamboat Mountain and no one could bear to tell me that I had Justin’s dribble.

  2. I have been enjoying mixing up the combinations with the chocolate waffle and chocolate Justin’s too!! Yum!
