Honey as an alternative to energy gels?

Hey Guys!

I already posted this one on EC forum but if I can get a wide spectrum of opinions on this, it'd be great!

Problem:
I used energy gels for the 2nd time this year on a ride over the weekend and just got sick of them already. I'm sponsored (through my team) by a company whose gels just plain sucks:(

So I started to think of some alternatives to get my CHO during races and since I'm mainly doing HIMs this year, I want to get at least 90% of energy from non-solid sources. I can't drink enough of sport drinks to get total calories from it so would need something else on top. So thought what about using honey (maybe in a gel bottle).

Does anyone have experience or thoughts about that?

thanks,

-JH
