Surge is convenient and great-tasting, but it's expensive. I wasn't able to find small quantities of maltodextrin for sale relatively cheap, so I make up my own PWO.
For PWO shake I use one of juice (or milk/kefir/yogurt/water) and whey + 1/2 energy bar (if not using juice). How good would honey be in a shake (to eliminate the bar/juice)? I love the taste of honey but don’t eat it very rarely.
Typical honey analysis
* Fructose: 38% * Glucose: 31% * Sucrose: 1% * Water: 17% * Other sugars: 9% (maltose, melezitose) * Ash: 0.17%
How good is fructose/glucose PWO? I’m not looking for optimum - 80% of optimum (given convenience and taste) is good enough.
