In 1954, Ralph and Luella Gamber developed the EN-R-G Bar (“EN” for energy, “R” for Ralph and “G” for Gamber). They wanted to provide an alternative to the sugary candy bars available, so, as such, their plan was simple: wholesome ingredients, great taste and, as Ralph was a beekeeper, honey. They introduced two-ounce packets of honey with the words “quick energy” on the packaging. At the time, Ralph’s friend Roy Phillips, head wrestling coach at Franklin & Marshall College, used those packets to provide quick energy for his athletes. Although Ralph and Luella knew they were on to something, the market was not quite ready for energy foods.
In 2001, EN-R-G Foods, Inc., was re-established by Bill Gamber Sr, Bill Gamber Jr., Bob Stahl and John Miller, in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, as Honey Stinger, with the same goal in mind: provide great tasting, honey-focused energy foods made with wholesome ingredients.
