I just purchased a bag of vanilla and a bag of Berry for my first attempt at Huel.
I started off with vanilla and was surprised that I like the texture/consistency, but the artificial sweetener flavour is way too much. I was expecting an oaty taste and am quite disappointed. I then tried the Berry and while it was slighter better I can still taste the artifical sweetner.
I don’t partularly want to buy an unsweetened pack as I just bought these. Does anyone have any tips to get rid of the flavour please?
A lot of people struggle to get used to it at first, myself included. I stuck with it because I hate waste, and I can’t afford to throw out £40 worth of food. It only took a few shakes and I was converted. Can’t imagine life without it. Do you have a stick blender you could use (carefully!) until you get the new one?
I tried some vanilla that’d been refrigerated overnight this morning and it tasted mostly the same, but a little thicker.
I’m going to give it a go for a few days (without blending) but I’ve always had issues with the taste of sweeteners so I’m not sure I can adjust! I usually end up throwing away any drinks which taste like sweetener as I find it so overpowering, the lucozade zero drinks are the first that come to mind.
Two bags is a lot to get through before you buy Unsweetened/Unflavoured if you don’t like the artificial sweetness. What I did was buy a bag of U/U and mix it 50/50 with Vanilla. A lot of Huelers do that. If the sweet flavour still bothers you, try 66/33 or whatever suits you.
I’d be happy to send you 200 or 300g of UU huel through the post for free. The only problem with this of course is that you have to trust that the person sending it to you hasn’t added anything else in!

That would be awfully kind of you! I definitely couldn’t accept it for free though.
I’d be more than happy to send some money your way.
Unsure if you’ve tried Berry but I have some Berry flavour that I could send to you if you would trust me lol!
