I’ve seen a few reports now of people finding Huel v2.2 too thick, and I thought starting a poll like this could help the team see what the general consensus is to help them decide if further thickener changes are needed for future versions.
I’m not certain, but I believe discourse forums count views as the number of page loads, not necessarily unique ones, so if someone viewed the thread 5 times, it would increase the vote count by 5, not 1. That, combined with the new poll which distinguishes between type, is likely why.
Possibly because thickness isn’t really the issue most people have with v2.2. It’s the lumpy, gloopyness that frustrates me. It just won’t shake into something smooth that’s nice to drink, even though I follow the exact same method as I did with v 2.1. I get lots of lumps and it’s just not pleasant. I’m hoping I just got a dodgy batch and that the next bag will be ok!
I’m on my second bag on v2.2 and this one is much easier to mix. Just like v2.1. Water + huel + good shake = tasty huel!
I’ve been transporting huel in a separate container to work and it seems to be better this way. My smoothest huel drinks come when I’ve shaken the powder in a separate tub before adding it to the water! I can;t explain that one but at least I’ve now got something drinkable. I’m now back to breakfast and lunch of huel monday to friday and breakfast only at the weekend. Excellent!
Been using Huel for about a year and a half now for 3 meals per day and so been through a few different versions, and 2.1 was perfect thickness i thought, where as 2.2 has gone back to some of the earlier versions which are too thick for me. I’m on unflavoured, unsweetened.
Had my first Huel ever this morning, following the directions down to the letter. Thought I had it thoroughly shaken after some time, but at the end I still had a lump roughly equivalent to 1/3 of a scoop, which seems a bit of a waste. I didn’t find the drink itself too thick, just that big lump was a waste (I could deal with the little lumps I detected along the way).
OMG, I’m so disappointed! Huel 2.2 is much worse for me. Both by taste and thickness (thicker!). I was never a fan of Huel thickness and texture compared to other powder foods and now it is even worse (I was buying it cause of ingredients) Not sure if I’ll buy it again. I hope that guys from Huel will change something.
For what it’s worth I find 2.2 to be roughly as thick as 2.1 but with an improved taste (vanilla only). Can’t comment on difference for unflavoured as I only just started on it with version 2.2 (which is also great by the way, surprised how nice it is with flavour pouches, on its own still just tastes like porridge).
