FAQs

The Energy Stroopwafel is the answer to pre-workout. It is a Dutch-style treat that acts like an Energy Gel but tastes more like breakfast.

Eat one before a workout or race, or just bring one along for along for the ride for an energy source to power your workout.

The energy component is from carbohydrates, BCAAs and electrolytes. This is an ideal product for someone looking to add something to their breakfast or pre-workout snack/meal, and for the person that is new to the Gel world. The GU Energy Stroopwafel includes organic eggs to help hold the Stroopwafel together AND adds a bit of protein, which the Gels and Chews do not have.

The Wild Berries, Coconut, and Salted Chocolate flavors are GLUTEN FREE. The Caramel Coffee Salty’s Caramel, Hot Chocolate, Campfire S’mores, and Gingerade flavors do contain gluten. All Stroopwafel flavors are certified kosher, as well. All flavors are, however, made with organic eggs, so they are not vegan-friendly. We also a gluten free flour blend that included organic rice flour, organic tapioca flour, and organic potato starch.

Rip open the single serving packet and take a bite! It’s good before you run or ride, during long duration activities, and even to fuel up after you finish. We like to enjoy Stroopwafels with a hot cup of coffee, and if you let the steam warm the waffle, it tastes even better!.

The Stroopwafel comes in both caffeinated and non-caffeinated flavors. Salted Chocolate, Salty’s Caramel, Gingerade, Coconut, Wild Berries, Hot Chocolate, and Campfire S’mores are CAFFEINE FREE. Caramel Coffee contains 20mg of caffeine. Caffeine consumption during exercise improves performance in several ways: it sharpens focus and perks you up; but more importantly, it helps the body produce more power, reduce the pain of hard efforts, and may even tap fat for fuel during exercise. All of this prolongs your ability to exercise at a high intensity. We use just enough caffeine to jump start this benefit and no more.

Yes, definitely! It’s good for anyone who needs energy when playing, on a hike, or just being active. You probably want to keep them away from the flavors that contain caffeine; no need to make them more hyperactive.

How Long Are You Going

General Recommendations

General Recommendations of effort

Eat an Energy Stroopwafel 30 minutes before a race or workout to top-off your energy stores with a delicious, portable snack. During longer efforts, when your heartrate stays low, you can eat an Energy Stroopwafel every 60-90 minutes to keep you fueled. PRO TIP: try one smeared with your favorite nut butter for a particularly delicious and power-packed snack.

Great morning pre-workout

I bought these specifically for my early morning rides and swims as I wanted something light, but still with enough calories to sustain me for a few hours in the morning. Bars were a bit too heavy, peanut butter got too boring and isn't really a fast digesting carb, so I thought I'd give these a try and have been really satisfied. I throw it in the microwave for about 7 seconds and its a great to eat and get out the door with. Definitely would recommend these if you're looking for something to hold you over through a morning workout.

These Stroops are life changing

Not only are they an incredible breakfast, but if you're like me and have more than one workout a day, it can be tricky to know what to eat in between. Especially if workout number 2 or 3 is a run. The stroopwafel is the perfect solution, and it has everything I need to fuel me to a great workout. I'm in love!
