Is Huel just right or too sweet?

It’s just right for me - the gentle sweetness of the vanilla flavour taste a bit like overnight oats / cold porridge, and is easily mixed up with a smattering of cinnamon, honey, stevia or something similar - especially when made with unsweetened almond milk or semi-skimmed cows milk.

Overall it’s fine, and certainly shouldn’t be any less sweet.

I would prefer it if it was a little sweeter and closer to v1.0, but I’ve gotten used to 1.2 now and its fine. Any less sweet though and I would have to move to something else, as it would just go too far in that direction. Anyone who would like it less sweet has the option of mixing in some unflavoured with the vanilla and getting the balance that suits them, harder for us who would like it sweeter to do that unless we go with non-huel products like extra sweetener or sugar (or unless a vanilla flavour pouch is released).

I just got my first order 1-2 weeks ago and find it just right, I really wouldn’t want it more or less sweet.
That said I do have a really sweet tooth :slight_smile:

EDIT: Just checked, I’m on v1.2 if that helps

Just right! Please don’t reduce the sweetness!

Great stuff everyone, thank you for your comments and valuable opinions. Some of you mentioning about it being too sweet, there are a couple of options for that mentioned here or in another thread:

  1. Add a larger amount of water to your Huel, this will reduce the vanilla and sweetness.

  2. We offer an Unflavoured & Unsweetened version of Huel, with this you can add your own level of sweetness and other flavours. Here are some ideas - How do you flavour your Huel?

Keep the comments coming!

Much too sweet for me. I shall be mixing it 50/50 with the unflavoured from now on.

It is quite sweet, but I personally like that. Maybe gets a little sickly with the flavour pouches (I have the rhubarb & custard and toffee flavours), so may switch to unflavoured for my next order.

We’ve been using it 4 days. I find it a little too sweet (80gms to 400 water as that’s what fits in Blend Active blender) and more so when I add Micha or Rhubarb and Custard.

Will order unsweetened next before I run out and try 50/50 mix but it’s already quite a messy and time consuming process making up next days 4 batches with 2 flavours lol.

Overall happy though.

Just right for me. I don’t flavour the vanilla with anything else, just use it as it arrives.

Just right :smile:
My wife says its too sweet.
I could cope with slightly less sweet as it is now, but I do like Huel just as it is.

I find that it really depends on the temperature of the water you mix with.
With room temp water it is not particularly sweet, and I would think it’s just about right.
But if I wanted more of a sugary taste I would blend the shake a few hours before, put it in the fridge and it would be to a nice level of sweetness.

I love the unsweetened version and think that it is fine as it is!

I’m on v1.1 but I like it best 3 scoops unflavoured to 1 scoop sweet. There is probably no pleasing everyone.

Too sweet.
I’ve tried living off the vanilla flavour but it was definitely to sweeter than i would like. I’ve ordered a batch of unflavoured, unsweetened and i hope this will make it more bearable. TBH i was just expecting a kind of oaty porridge taste but the vanilla “flavour” was very strong, when i expected it to be unintrusive. I tried combining it with the toffee flavour pack but the sweetness was unbearable. Hopefully the unsweetened is what I was looking for.

The vanilla is just right

A 50/50 mix of the vanilla and the unflavoured/unsweetened hits just the right spot for me. Especially when I’m on 100% Huel.

Vanilla is just right for me. I genuinely enjoy Huel at the moment and don’t tend to add anything to it.
