I don’t have the mint-choc flavour boost but find mint-choc premix the same. Too much mint for me. I mix with a good spoonful of cacao which helps. Perhaps the chocolate fb is a bit sweeter but I don’t know.
The mint-choc flavour boost is much more chocolatey than the mint-choc premix, which tastes more like mint choc-chip ice cream than minty chocolate.
I’d actually recommend adding real cacao powder to the mint choc premix as this works really well and tones down the mint and the sweetness and adds chocolateyness without making it sickly.
As for the difference between the chocolate flavour boost and the cacao flavour boost - they are suprisingly different.
The chocolate tastes more like milk chocolate - like a bar of Cadbury’s almost.
The cacao tastes more… well… chocolatey! And less milky. It doesn’t taste like dark chocolate exactly, but more like rich chocolate.
Of the two, I prefer the cacao boost - it is delicious, especially in 50:50 Original/Unflavoured
Adding the chocolate or cacao flavour boost to the mint-choc premix makes it far too sweet in my opinion.
So cacao powder (or cocoa powder) is definitely the solution
Ohhhhhhh sorry! Completely misread that!
I just assumed you were talking about the premix as it’s really minty compared to the boost.
I’m suprised you find the boost too minty - maybe you would be better off with a different flavour boost.
But to use it up, I’d say yes try cacao powder.
Or try using less boost or more water to weaken the flavour a bit.
Are you refrigerating it for a couple hrs before drinking? That also improves the flavour a lot
Can confirm adding actual raw organic cacao powder (a teaspoon or about 5 grams) to a huel shake either mint choc premix or original is delicious. Also cacao powder has a great nutritional profile and is packed with antioxidants.
