@jeffy89 It’s nothing like the chocolate boost at all.
It also has a weird biscuity taste and slightly sour flavour that remains even if you add flavour boosts or coffee or cacao, so if you dislike the taste, it’s quite hard to disguise.
A couple of people say they like it but I personally think it’s terrible and wouldn’t buy it again.
If you like cheap / fake chocolate like what you get in America and Thailand, you might like it.
If you like UK milk chocolate (dairy milk or galaxy), chocolate thick-shakes, Belgian chocolate or dark chocolate or cacao. Or the chocolate or cacao flavour boosts. Huel premix tastes like NONE of them
It’s very different to the chocolate flavour boost and has a flavour all of its own. Certainly not as sweet, but that suits me fine. I don’t find any of the powders ‘thinner’ as I mix them all in the same way - 100g in 100ml almond milk + 450ml water.
I’ve taken a fairly long break from Huel but seeing the chocolate one advertised was the final push I needed to get back on it.
I was really excited when it arrived. However, I’m halfway through my first shake and it’s really not very nice, or anything like chocolate. It’s going to take some doing to get through this. Definite buyers remorse.
Totally agree @Dan
I think we need to campaign for a better version
If you want awesome chocolate Huel try Unflavoured unsweetened with raw cacao -it’s dark, bitter, intense and delicious.
If you prefer it creamy try it with milk or try the original powder with the chocolate flavour boost.
The cacao and chocolate flavour boosts are very good. The premix is not good…
I’d like that! I use cashews in my soups to add creaminess. The one I had was at a well known vegan fast food place in Manchester where everything is delicious, but the mac n cheese had an after taste.
I’ve put fresh coffee in it today, tastes better but I still get the buttery after taste. Funny how we all taste different things, I’m happy with the nutritional profile and will merrily work my way through the rest of this bag.
Hey all, thanks so much for all the feedback on our Chocolate Huel Powder. Really useful for us! We don’t sit still for long and are always looking to improve all our products. As you’ve seen, members of all teams, particularly the product development team monitor the forum and read and engage with your comments so you can know that the feedback is read and taken into account
Just got mine yesterday. It kinda smells of Ovaltine when I opened the bag (which I quite like). Tastes ok, might alternate between this and Vanilla each month. Going to add dried coconut to try make a Bounty bar this morning
