Hi all, recently joined the Huel revolution after recommendation from a friend. I am using the Black Huel and H&S, and thought I’d give the bars a try, choosing the mixed flavours option since without knowing which flavours I’d like, it would be silly to buy a whole box of just one flavour. Slightly concerned that I had to buy two boxes in one hit, as I don’t have a good track record with this type of ‘healthy’ bar, but thought it would be ok.
Wrong! I tried my first one today, and (no offense to people who like them) it was one of the most revolting things I’ve ever eaten. Well, half-eaten, as I couldn’t bring myself to finish the bar.
It’s not the taste so much, as the texture (it’s exactly why I don’t like things like the Nakd bars), which I presume is the pea protein. I honestly couldn’t bring myself to finish even half of the bar before throwing it away.
Trouble is, of course, I now have (all bar the one bar) two whole boxes that I will never eat. That’s a significant amount of money I can’t afford to throw away! This is exactly why I agree with the calls for ‘taster’ products. I have found ways to make the Black protein shakes palatable, but there’s no way I can make these bars edible for me. What do I do now?
Incidentally the Korma H&S I found very nice (with a judicious dollop of extra sultanas) - I cannot have any of the other flavours as they all contain either chilli or garlic, both of which I’m highly intolerant to. Any thoughts of making more flavours without either of these two ingredients, please??
