This is astonishing. Martyn I’m sorry, I’m no longer able to take anything you write seriously. Chocolate RTD is the ruler of all RTDs It laughs at the others in its deliciousness! I’m sorry, but it’s got to be said.
I tried salted caramel 2.0. Thanks for the option to order one single bottle with another order, otherwise I wouldn’t have tried it.
I tried salted caramel because that was the only one where I didn’t cringe just by looking at the name. I still think it’s a bad idea to not offer at least vanilla as a non-sucralose version. The taste was quite OK, maybe even good. Other than that it’s too sweet. After the first sip I had to wait a bit. I’m not used to and I don’t like this sweetness. So I couldn’t imagine drinking this regularly, though I like the format for when I need to travel.
What I dislike though is the nutritional profile. It has too much fat (I prefer the Huel “White” fat level and find the Black fat level too high) while it has not enough protein (I’m looking for something between 30-40 g here).
The fat is higher because we had to balance the viscosity (thickness) with creaminess to give a good mouthfeel. This needed a bit of flexing of the macro nutrients to achieve this. To make a silky smooth, drinkable RTD these macros work a better.
Understand the protein levels don’t suit you, sounds like Powder is your jam! Thanks so much for this feedback, it’s interesting to hear you are after a lower fat, higher protein RTD, it’s come up before so you aren’t the only one!
If I’m looking for a dessert that would probably fine. But I’m looking for the main course. For that, out of the four 2.0 version only salted caramel was one that I could imagine. And as I mentioned it even tastes good, other than the too high sweetness.
I could live with the higher fat content if the protein level would be higher as well. But yes, ideally more protein less fat.
And yes, powder is great, I wouldn’t want to use RTD at home, that would be overkill. But if I’m traveling it would be a great alternative and I would even be willing to pay for it with the right nutritional profile and less sweet.
@Tim_Huel are the new V.2.0 RTD available in the shops yet? I haven’t seen them.
Also, I wasn’t keen on the V.1.0 RTDs, they tasted too much of artificial sweetner and didn’t cure my hunger, they left me still feeling hungry. Did anyone else find this? Has anyone found the V.2.0 RTDs more satisfying?
