Just tried it the moment the parcel arrived from DPD, it tastes good, texture is spot on, thought it does feel like it’s missing something in the flavour department, though compared to real Mac and Cheese it is probably unhealthy amounts of fat and salt.
But it is great, I will be buying more in future.
Also on a side note, I don’t remember Banana Huel 3.0 beng as good as it is, I remember it being slightly behind vanilla is flavour, but in my few years away I feel like it has been improved, and now sits slightly higher than Vanilla for me now, both exceptional flavours. Will be 2/2 each month with them for a while.
Woop! Had a feeling you would like the Mac & Cheeze. Do pimp it up though, add some toppings, some extra flavours. So much you can do!
When was the last time you had Banana powder? If it was only when you could get the flavour boost then that would explain it. The FB is very different to the preblend powder, it tastes more like a banana milkshake. Whereas the Powder is meant to taste more like you blended a banana into Huel Vanilla!
As a new Huel customer I tried my first Mac and Cheeze yesterday. Honestly, it was a big challenge to eat it. It tastes like molten, liquid plastic. Really awful, I could not find any connection to what a real Mac and Cheeze tastes.
Ah man, Mac and Cheeze no good? It’s interesting to see, but there does seem to be a bit of a split of opinion on it, just from reading comments on adverts as well as here.
I would be interested to know whether the cohort of people who like it are a higher proportion vegan. I agree it doesn’t taste like a regular Mac & Cheeze, but I do think it’s darn close!
Interestingly, I was at a Tex-Mex restaurant the other day and order the mac and cheeze side (I’m not a vegan), and the Huel one would have knocked this out the park. Consistency was good, but no flavour whatsoever.
edit: realise that was a pretty ambitious use of the word “interestingly”, that was not an interesting sentence.
I’m not a vegan, and I LOVE cheese, and I find the cheese okay, compare it to traditional “Kraft” branded Mac and Cheese and it’s similar I think, though if you compared it to a Mac and CHeese with really good cheese it will fall short, obviously.
I still think there is a portion of the flavour profile missing in the Mac and Cheeze, but I can’t think what it is, a little something that makes it seem a little artificial, which is missing there in Kraft boxes too, I think I found out what it is, I think it needs a little more creaminess?or stickiness in texture,
I’m going to finish my bag, because I actually love it and will be ordering more regardless, but I will keep you updated on my findings.
