Confusing disparity with scoops and sizes and back of pack info- 2.3 and black 1.0

Is this Scoopgate lV or V?

Thanks for the pointer, I’ll head over for a look.

I’m just confused as to why the info on the back of the pack doesn’t match the equiptment they send out with said pack

Hi @Safari just put Scoopgate into the searchbox and you’ll find several threads on the subject.

honestly - I think one mans level scoop is another mans Berry 2.3 powder. its pretty variable and the powder at room temp is quiet aerated so can be denser i.e. more weight depending on how forcefully you scoop it - as @Bee said - scoopgate, I’ve lost count which number we’re on.

Only way round this is to treat yourself to a digital kitchen scale and weigh it. I always do.


Thanks for the heads up! I’ve been a user for a few years but this is the first time I’ve felt the need to have to come and join the forums.

I weigh my powder as I add it and have to say, two properly filled (level) ‘new’ scoops is coming out within a few grams of 95g every time.

The scoops are always going to be very approximate. If you’re looking for consistency then use scales. You’ll be please to know the instructions for making Huel v3.0 are much much simpler than that of v2.3.


Of course, you might find that your first scoop is 55g and your second is 45, or anywhere in between.

Hope some of that helps, do let us know if you have any other questions.

I like to cause trouble :wink:
So I’m going to point out that I just received my first order of v3 and received 3 new scoops but they look the same as the old scoops only bigger…
They look nothing like the funky scooped scoops in your picture. (New on left, Old on right)

different angle / perspective on the illustration between the two scoops thats all

Nope @Phil_C
Both old and new scoops that I have been sent have straight edges.
The new scoop on the diagrams is very obviously tapered ie narrower at the bottom and wide at the top.
I have a scoop like this that came with a protein powder and find it measures slightly more accurately as less air bubbles tend to form in the middle of the powder.
The wider edge scoop tends to make more mess tipping it into the shaker however so pluses and minuses to both.

I’m really not bothered what shape the scoop is, but the difference is not one of perspective. It’s a different scoop than what is shown in the image!

straight edges aren’t straight any more when they are in perspective - thats what it means. the only way you can artificially remove this is using orthographic perspective in 3D rendering when you in effectively defy the laws of physics.

when you look down a long straight road does it stay straight right to the point of the horizon or does it taper off? see new scoop below which is the same straight one you have but now looks more like the picture - depends entirely on the angle, distance and camera lens it was taken with.

You guys crack me up :joy: it’s a plastic scoop, you are over thinking it.
If you want approximate measures throw in two scoops. If you want exact use some scales.


I overthink everything. its my job. mainly because I live in SEA where thinking is not a day to day requirement :laughing:



So how did they manage to achieve the straight edge look for the old scoop then?

My friend who ordered Black Edition and v3 as soon as Black came out received a new scoop that looks identical to the one @Tim_Huel has pictured in his explanation.
I assume they started out with these shape new scoops but have now switched to the straight edge larger new scoops, but not updated their diagrams to represent the new new scoops

by taking a picture of it at a parallel angle and further away. the shape of the elipse on the top clearly indicates that. Basic physics aside, as Jon mentioned, its of no importance in the big scheme of things.

They are two different shape scoops

I refuse to lose the argument


hey its not an argument :grinning: just explaining camera distortion - you remember that first render I did of the Lunar New Year Huel bottle? it had a weird barrel perspective on it that distorted the shape? so when I pulled the camera back and changed the aperture it appeared straight again - same thing happening here. Or its another #scoopgate to add to the tally.

Yes so there are two different shaped scoops around, both with the same volume (94cc). My image above is one of them and Christina’s image above is another. There shouldn’t be anyone receiving the old 70cc (38g) scoop, if you have, sorry, get in touch with CE team and we can replace. Both of the below scoops hold approximately 50g.
