i find these large bags pretty nice, actually i prefer them over the “daily bags” from joylent or mana. But these bags are pretty uncomfortable to close. I bought a 4.4 liter box (something like Tupperware) and put a whole bag in this box. It is amazing! So easy and clean to make a shake. I don’t have to put my arm in the bag for scraping the remains out of the bag. And: I don’t have to seal the bag
@Huel: Why don’t you sell your own box, which can contain one bag of powder? Like your beautiful shaker…
I’ve added my shaker for scale! A box with the Huel writing on it like the shaker would be nice (although i would’nt buy it, since i’m happy with my container
By the way: I don’t really get the concept of the daily bags from the competitors, since most of the people do not replace every meal with a soylent. So one bag last for longer anyway… and i guess it is cheaper to produce on large bag and produces less waste.
Edit: This box is mine
I shake the container and cant it, so the last bits fall in a single corner.
While tipping the bag over into the shaker created quite a mess
Actually i haven’t done this with THIS container, only with a smaller one. I’ve ordered Huel only once until now. I plan to clean the container every time i emptied it.
But first i have to consume all the other soylents, i ordered for testing…
Pretty simple concept: if you replace half your calories with a soylent, you can do half a pitcher on day one and half a pitcher on day two. If you replace one meal a day with a soylent, you do a third of a pitcher per day. If you just replace an occasional meal, it is easy to convert: A third of a pitcher is 667 calories, or a quarter of a pitcher is 500 calories.
If you make it more infrequently, you can mix half a pitcher. Or, you can use a scoop with the daily bag, which is the same effect as using the scoop from a bigger bag. Except you don’t need to worry about getting some big tupperware container to store it all.
Ah, okay… if you use a larger blender to make the whole bag at once, a daily bag is perfect.
I use only a normal shaker and make single portions. But scooping out of the small bags were not that easy as from a big bag.
I’m new to Huel and did exactly this. My first bags arrived and couldn’t shut the bag so went to Ikea and purchased the largest tupperware box I could find. I think it could fit 2 bags but only put 1 in it right now. I have smaller one I will use to keep a portion or 2 with me.
The bags are fine but if powder gets into the zip bit then its just irritating to get it out again.
I guess now they are shipping in smaller bags I can probably use a smaller container to avoid it going off/stale (is that even possible?)
I dislike the shapeof these things. They are not so nice for scooping out out the powder, if it’s nearly empty. The opening is to narrow, imho. I prefer a more flat box, with a wide opening. But it is very cheap, thats a point for it
I use a cereal container (£2 from Asda) - a bit taller than a cereal box, big enough opening to scoop the powder out easily and holds probably about 1.5 of the bigger pouches - so not uncomfortably full with one.
Thank you so much for the tip with the Emsa Optima box. I just got the 4.4l version and it’s so easy to put the powder in and get it out. Really love it. I also got the 0.38l Version for the flavoring powder. Perfect!
I really like that Emsa Optima option, but would like something that’s opaque. I know a lot of nutrients are light sensitive, so I’d prefer to store my Huel in something like it that wouldn’t let light pass through.
Has anyone found something similar that’s not clear?
