I bought a bottle of chocolate RTD to try out Huel before committing to £50 worth, tried it today and I don’t think I could drink this every day ):
The first issue was the texture, I expected it to be thinner but it’s so thick it takes genuine effort to get down. With the powder I’d be starting at 1 scoop in the shaker for breakfast, maybe going up to 1.5 or 2 if it’s not enough after a few days. Would it be thinner? I’d don’t have a blender but “thin with chunks” is acceptable to me.
Also the aftertaste. I can always 100% tell if something is artificially sweetened from this (I’ve been told it’s genetic?) and this is intolerable, though I read somewhere that huel uses stevia so not sure what I’m actually tasting here. It’s been 20 mins since I finished the bottle and I can still taste it. I wanted to try the chocolate powder but I think it uses the same sweetener, but maybe the effect isn’t as strong? I also wanted to buy a U&U bag to try throwing random ingredients into it, I’m totally comfortable adding my own actual sugar as I’m doing this for convenience primarily.
Thanks so much for your help.
