I’ve been on Huel for a couple of weeks now after moving from Jimmy Joy and in the past Nano (Mistake in that last one ). I really love Huel and my body seems to love it too! Only one thing, I have both the mint chocolate and new vanilla flavours and there is quite a bad aftertaste. Hard to describe, but it’s like when it hits the back of my tongue when I swallow it tastes weird, maybe bitter or like a chemical taste? Chilling in the fridge for a few hours definitely decreases it, but it’s still there and I don’t think I could live with it long term. I think from reading other posts the aftertaste is something that is common. Next time I’m ordering I think I’ll go for U/U, but I also wanted to ask about original vanilla. Any Huelers that had the aftertaste issue find the original vanilla better? Or the same issue?
Most people seem to be putting the aftertaste issue down to the sucralose sweetener, but I’m pretty sure that Jimmy Joy uses sucralose as well, yet I don’t get the same aftertaste with it. Just speculation for conversation.
On another little note, it’s a shame Huel don’t have an option for a finer blend…but hopefully getting a blender next week. Does anyone else find the blending refines it a lot? Maybe I’m just used to other shakes in this regard.
