Definitely have a go with the Boost samples, you can order them on their own (£3, incl delivery) or get them with an order of Huel for £1.50. Once you’ve decided on your favourite you can then grab a full pouch.
Throwing it out there, Matcha Tea Flavour Boost is now my favourite ever. I’ve been deliberating between Cacao, Toffee and Matcha Tea for some time, but the official directive from Tim’s desk now is that Matcha is my favourite.
I wanted to be purist and have little additives as possible but when I got a free flavour pack, I thought I’d give it a shot and I love them. not had a bad flavour yet, so much so that I don’t know which one(s) to order lol.
Anyway, I use the samples exactly as it says on the pack so with U/U you want 1.5 scoops = 57g with 300ml liquid.
It looks like you’re using too much Huel and thus not getting the full flavour.
If you want 100g, you need to use Vanilla Huel.
So I just got my shipment of Huel today along with a full bag of the strawberry flavour and a sample pack too but unfortunately it’s not good news.
No matter how much of the flavouring I put in all I can taste is that same oaty/cardboard taste that I can’t stand, the flavouring really seems to do nothing at all for me.
I really wanted to like it to help improve my diet but the taste really isn’t for me. I’m considering trying one last time replacing the water with milk to see what effect that has on the taste but I have no idea what difference it’ll make.
We’re getting a bit of feedback from the community that although the Flavour Boosts are great in Vanilla Huel, they are a bit lacking in U/U Huel.
Just an FYI, the recommendation to add 1.5 scoops of U/U with the Boost Sample is purely to get as much flavour as possible - not a meal recommendation. These Samples are not intended to be something you buy constantly and keep on you to add to Huel but purely an opening to try all our Flavour Boosts and then make an informed choice on which 150g pouch you buy
With regard to JazzyP’s comment on the taste, either flavoured or unflavoured, in our house we make a batch of Huel up each evening and keep it overnight in the fridge. This really changes the taste and texture of the product. Might be worth a try. We also include some coconut milk or almond milk in the liquid content which adds a bit of flavour.
