Huel V3.0 and the new scoop

You’re dead to me.

Is that legal? And does Huel still work correctly without the manufacturer approved scoop? Don’t you realise that you may be using substandard equipment that voids your Huel warranty?


Never had a problem with splashback here, possibly you need to experiment to optimise the height from which you empty the scoop into the liquid.

I am however interested in how to avoid the fine powder static shower on lifting the scoop out of the bag. It’s like I can see tiny particles of Huel making a break for freedom as soon as I unseal it. They dance across my worksurface like a miniature snowstorm. Some flavours seem to be worse than others, notably banana.


Dancing bananas are a hidden danger in the kitchen and one not to be taken lightly.

Just tap your scoop against a radiator pipe. The metal, not a painted section. This will ground the scoop and discharge the static. You will also look like a proper loon.

(I have no idea if this would actually work in this case. It’s useful when doing delicate electronic work to discharge static from your body.)

Be a maverick and break free from the shackles of your official Huel scoops. My bigger measuring cup means only one lift from the bag!
Granted I sometimes get it wrong and drop it everywhere but it’s all part of the fun right?!
I will back away from this debate now as I appear to have been drawn into a discussion about a plastic scoop, damn it!!


Replied here, sorry for confusion.

Thanks so much Marc! Great to hear you’re enjoying your v3.0. Sorry you’re unsure about the scoop. We’ve looked at getting a scoop that can hold 50g, but a little less at the shape of the scoop. Because we send scoops with every order, and can’t send orders without them, we are kinda tied by what we can get our hands on so need to be a little less picky about the shape.

Since we’re here, describe what your perfect Huel scoop would be? Perhaps two briefs:

#1. Must be cheap to make, so we can send a couple with every order
#2. Perhaps a more premium one you can buy on site

Not saying we’re looking to do this but would be interested to hear what functions, shape, size your perfect scoop would be.

Make a premium metal scoop. Copper, because it’s dead classy like. Make sure it has a connecting wire with a stake on the end. We can thread the wire through a window and stab the stake into the garden. This will carry static charge away from the scoop and safely to ground. It also means if we ever misplace the scoop we can go to the garden stake, then follow the wire back to the scoop, wherever it may be!


I’m back to being amused and a little weirded out by the scoop talk again.
Functions required from a scoop?? Premium scoops??

giving people the option to have a bioplastic one would be good - even if its a paid one - if for no other reason than warm fuzzy feelings.

You say that but I know you’ve started to take a genuine interest. It’s a slippery slope, mate! You’ll be sketching your ideal scoop and posting it to Tim by the end of the week.

Haha :joy:
I am incredibly interested in the functions required from a scoop??

Just think of all the functions!

  1. Scooping
  2. Tiny plant pot
  3. No others

I sit mine on my kitchen window sill and if I’m having a bad day I look at it and remember all the scoop threads I’ve read. Thinking about the discussions surrounding functionality, what people want from a scoop and if the one pictured is in fact conical or just a trick of the eye puts me in a great place immediately.

Life hack for you: take a photo of your scoop on the window sill. Set it as your phone lockscreen. Every time you take your phone out of your pocket you’ll get a little warm feeling.


Some examples I had for functions:

A clip

Scales built in

As well as, metal or plastic; how big would you want it; tapered sides or not; how long would you want the handle


I’d argue that it’s not really a scoop anymore though is it?

Classy copper, so sexy. Plus the black packaging adds a touch of gimp chic.

Seriously that thing screams NIPPLE CLAMP.

Edit: @Tim_Huel when you consolidate my posts like that you ruin the comedy timing! I’m on your side with the insane scoop spitballing but I will turn feral if you make a habit out of that.
