I tried Jimmy Joy as I heard it had a better texture to Huel. I do enjoy Huel and one thing I find a little difficult is the clumps sticking to the side of containers and how hard is is to clean the container due to the clumps. If I want convenience, I also want convenience of washing up
Anyway I’m back to Huel as although JJ had a few nice things, I think Huel is the better product for me.
What I liked about JJ
Texture - With less liquid you get a thinner and easier liquid. No clumps and easier to clean
Pack sizes. This is quite big for me and I didn’t know how big until I tried JJ. A pack contains 10 400 kcal meals. This meant I could try all of the flavours easier and the packs store away in my cupboard much better than the much larger Huel bags
Cost - it’s cheaper. But not that much cheaper as I’ll outline below.
What I didn’t like
Taste - I found the flavours mild and so didn’t enjoy the taste
Texture - Even tho the powder is thinner, it’s a little gritty and I found I had to refrigerate it overnight (much like I do with Huel).
Nutritional profile - Huel has a better carb/protein profile and Huel black has the best imo. More protein means I feel less hungry. I found using the standard JJ, I needed three scoops to keep me satisfied. I considered trying JJ active which has more protein but that’s still only as much as Huel white so likely I’ll still need more JJ to keep me satisfied. This ties into cost as I need more JJ to keep me satisfied this costing me more in the long run
Soya - JJ say that soya has a bad rep and maybe they are right. However, having 1-2 JJ shakes a day, every day is too much soya for me
Artwork - Ok this is a little picky but I’ve got to say, I just can’t stand the badly drawn cartoon artwork they use. If it well well drawn, I might feel better for it and sorry if it sounds mean, the artwork is pretty poor
Anyway, those are my thoughts. Can’t wait to finish my last pouch of JJ and get back to Huel
