    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    by fromTOO SWEET! I've been going through all the goos and blocks in an attempt to find one that works for me. As with all of these, personal taste, stomach temperment, etc varies person-to-person. I tried using the chocolate flavored one on a short 6 mile run and nearly threw up. The honey had crystalized, which wasn't a big deal for me. The problem was the sweetness was WAY too over powering and it tasted disgusting. I couldn't even force myself to finish it. Every time I tried, my throat would close up because of the sweetness.

    by fromLike swallowing honey As an energy boost, this gel worked fine. No complaints about that, and this is mainly the reason for my "bottom line". However, I have to say that out of all the gels I've tried (about 5 different ones), this one was the toughest to swallow. It seemed really thick, and it felt like it never made it past my throat. I had that feeling and a not-so-great aftertaste for a few miles later. This was even after I took a few more chugs of water. I didn't have that problem with any of the other gels. I did love the honey idea, so I was disappointed that I didn't like it more. Try it out, what works for me (or didn't work) doesn't have to be the same for you.

    by fromGave me the Runs.... I bought this to try and see if I can use it for camping as an emergency food. I love honey and it tasted great but then after the couple of sipping out of the pack I realized it was too sweet because my throat started irritating. I also found out that in large consumption it gave me diarrhea. It is natural honey and honey itself has it's own bacteria. That's why honey is never fed to babies. I recommend mixing it with hot water to drink with to kill the bacterias.

    by fromGreat Product I've been running with gu for the last few years and I find that all the sugar just sits in my belly all day after a long run. I picked up a strawberry and gold gel pack while I was at REI yesterday and headed out for a 17 mile run this morning. While the gel was a little sweet, it was much easier to swallow and didn't reside in my belly making me feel nauseous for the rest of the day. I felt really great my entire run (took the strawberry with caffeine around mile 6 and the gold around mile 12). I would recommend this product to other runners!

    by fromMy Go-To Energy Fix on Rides Honey Stinger goes down easier than other gel/gus/gummies I've tried and provides a better boost. It's easy to tear off w/just one hand and your teeth. Cons: You'll get leftover gooey honey in your jersey pocket, but that's with any gel/gu based energy product you use.

    by fromTasty and Portable I use the Gold flavor as a substitute for honey in my tea and oatmeal when I go backpacking. It's much easier to carry than regular honey and provides extra vitamins and an energy boost before I start climbing all those hills!

    by fromGood Change of Pace The sweetness can be overwhelming, but mixed with water it's a great snack, especially if you're looking for a change of pace from the routine gels and bars. As an adventure racer, it's a great source of carbs during long training sessions.
