So I’m thinking of trying the new Huel Black edition, in both chocolate and vanilla. I used huel last year and loved it, and I’ve been using it again for the past month (chocolate flavour), and mixed with cashew or almond milk I love it. But I really want to try out the new Black edition as I’m interested in the macros, but worried it won’t taste as good.
I’ve done both chocolates though not a side by side, there is a difference But wasn’t noticeable for me. The black is more chocolate ness to it I found. The biggest difference to me was the black goes much thicker when in fridge than white.
The vanilla I’ve only had in black, find it a bit strong so cut with UU.
If it’s been a year, and you got on okay with Huel then, I’d say you won’t notice much difference.
I enjoy the black vanilla, it’s a subtle flavour I think and not overly sweet. I like it when drinking it straight after making and also if left in the fridge for a few hours.
The black chocolate I didn’t really care for straight after making. When left in the fridge for a few hours though the flavour mellows and I enjoy it. Not exactly what I would describe as ‘chocolatey’ but I like it when done this way.
If I need to make and drink immediately I will always use vanilla and if I’m making in advance I have the option for vanilla or chocolate.
Hi, I have not tried black vanilla yet but I have a few bags of black chocolate to work my way through. I just cant detect any chocolate flavour to it and like Bee i am struggling with it. I have been mixing it with banana v3 to try and use it up.
So for anyone also wondering this or wants an update- my Huel Black got delivered today. I have tried the chocolate one so far and I really like it! I certainly feel more full than usual, not sure if thats the extra protein or me just not having a big appetite today. Anyway, it tasted great! Certainly different than the white version, but not completely different in my opinion. It has a slight after taste but I remember thinking this when I first tried the white huel and that went after my taste buds got accustomed to it. The taste even reminds me a tiny touch of sweet readybrek, not the texture though that would be gross haha. So yeah all in all I’m happy with it If anyone wants to know what i think of the vanilla Black feel free to ask, I’ll try that tomorrow
I found I preferred the black chocolate more if I left it in the fridge for a while. Only with the chocolate though. I prefer the vanilla straight away rather than when I’ve left it. At least it gives me options though. If I need a shake straight away I use vanilla if made in advance I use chocolate.
Weird how differing tastes work though
I liked them both individually but have found that I prefer the taste of them both mixed together 50/50. I found that if you leave them in the fridge that the pea protein taste came through a lot more strongly which wasn’t too my taste to be honest.
I ordered both Black editions. I am new to Huel.
To be honest I don’t really like both of them but the Vanilla I still drink from time to time.
The chocolate tasted so awful that I straight put the whole bag into the trash.
I was not able to drink more than two sips of it.
So I will likely not become a fan of the drinks…
What I really like are the bars. The salted caramel is amazing !
