You have me worried now @ChristinaT. Mine is due to be delivered tomorrow
That is surprising (and a bit worrying). I never considered it could miss the mark too much on taste since I enjoyed both the Chocolate and Cacao flavor boosts. I had assumed that chocolate is such a common flavour profile for various food and drink that there must be quite well known ways of re-producing it.
Not ordered mine just yet; might wait to hear some more feedback from others…
Well, it will be interesting to see what others think.
I also really dislike new Vanilla, and I hate Berry so my taste buds aren’t necessarily typical of the average Hueler.
But I LOVE cacao boost and the chocolate boost was ok. And as everyone knows, adding cacao powder to Huel is like a magical combination. But this premix is something completely different.
I really am stumped. The flavour is peculiar.
Chocolate is a pretty basic flavour, I’m not sure how it could go ‘wrong’.
I’ll be waiting for everyone else’s verdict…
I love Vanilla and have recently bought another bag of berry (it sort of grew on me) so it will be interesting to see how I feel about chocolate. Thing is, if I don’t like it on its own I will add instant coffee, cacao, mocha, pb etc etc and not buy any more when it’s gone. Simples.
Interested to know what this is like - I like the mint chocolate for a change but like the thought of just chocolate on it’s own!
Cristina, this is awful news that you don’t like the product & haven’t had a good experience! Any more detail you can give us would be greatly appreciated
Chocolate obvioulsy is completely different to cacoa from a flavour profile standpoint. As you know, chocolate is creamier, sweeter & milkier in taste & cacao is richer, bitter & stronger in roasted notes.
All our products are signed off by the NPD team & senior management teams so it certainly has been tested. Keep us posted!
Is it perhaps more of a US “chocolate” taste like Herschey’s? That never tasted anything like chocolate to me either
I’m very intrigued with this 'ere ‘chocolate’ flavour and looking forward to trying it for myself.
So it doesn’t taste like Chocolate Frijj then?
I love the chocolate one… scrumptious
@Ian42 it tastes nothing like a chocolate frijj
I think maybe it does taste a bit like Hershey’s @dharkhig - which to me tastes sour / gone off / pretty disgusting, and nothing like chocolate.
@LeeOfficialHuel I think I was expecting / hoping it would taste similar to the chocolate flavour boost or the cacao flavour boost. The chocolate fs to me tastes similar to Cadbury’s dairy milk. Whereas the premix tastes nothing like real chocolate at all. But maybe is more like American chocolate (?)
It’s not to my taste at all.
But it’s not really a problem because to me, Unflavoured Huel plus cacao powder makes the best chocolate Huel ever.
Is it like when you’re expecting an amazing Easter Egg and then you’re given a supermarket own brand one that you know will taste of library air and old cardboard, and you’re simply devastated?
Sigh, product development team we’re working on those two flavours for flavour boosts for a summer release. Back to the drawing board guys.
Also working on Hiking Sock, and Greenhouse in Summer.
On a serious note, I am a bit excited for the chocolate huel. I’m hoping it’s a bit like cheap supermarket chocolate mousse, to save me buying cheap supermarket chocolate mousse packs.
Yes, @ChristinaT I don’t like Hershey’s either!
However, going by the fact that you seem to hate all the flavours I like (eg Berry, New Vanilla) and ISTR you like Original which I detest, maybe I will be onto a winner with the new Chocolate premix!
Therefore I have added a bag of it to my subscription for my next delivery in May
Hahaha @dharkhig I think your logic is onto something there !
I like Unflavoured the best though.
Original is okay, but best mixed with UU
Mint is nice
Others are terrible
If you love berry and Vanilla you might love chocolate too!
I will be very interested to know what everyone else thinks
@AppleJuice summed it up perfectly with his cheap Easter egg analogy
Initial impressions? I LOVE Chocolate premix! Do I detect a hint of coconut cream in there reminiscent of Bounty? That was my impression having only just mixed it.
Will update Further, when it’s been in the fridge a few hours. VERY promising indeed
@Bee did you think it tasted like chocolate??
I’m glad you like it.
My taste buds must be wierd
Update: Will definitely be ordering chocolate premix on a regular basis. Even better having been in the fridge for a few hours. Not too sweet, just as I like it
Yes in a subtle way, also a hint of coconut cream. Altogether yummy IMO. LOL your taste buds are not weird, just different to mine
I found the chocolate mint to be very mild, I wonder if the chocolate is like that.
It’s like there is a hint of flavour which is masked, it’s not in your face. As long as the sugar is low then that’s fine by me
