Was there ever any decision made as to whether to offer pre-flavoured Huel?
I’ve had chocolate Huel for a couple of years now, either flavoured with Huel pouches or chocolate whey. It’d be much easier to just buy a bag of generously flavoured chocolate Huel and be done with it.
I understand it’d be a pain to do this for every flavour, but perhaps the most popular pouches could be offered?
Interested in why it isn’t already a thing, as a lot of competitors offer pre flavoured. It gets a bit tedious buying a new flavour pouch every few weeks for a fat £7.50 a punt.
I add a teaspoon of raw organic cocao powder to my Huel, it mixes in well. My usual Huel blend is 1 scoop vanilla, 1 scoop unflavoured, 300ml water, 100ml Alpro coconut. With the cocao it reminds me of chocolate milkshake with a bit of a cookie dough vibe
That’s a coincidence, just after typing this I grabbed some cacao powder from Amazon. Think it was £6 for 500g which isn’t too bad. Until we get actual bags of chocolate Huel, I think this will be the best way
This is the one I’m using, I’m really happy with the taste, etc.
I’m not sure I’d buy a chocolate flavoured Huel tbh, I’m a bit fussy about the ‘chocolate’ flavour itself, so if it was just an added flavour I don’t think it would taste that good (perhaps too sweet and artificial). Unless Huel were actually adding organic cacao powder, then it would be a different story
Are you mixing with vanilla Huel? I personally find vanilla Huel too sweet on its own and do half and half with unflavoured. That said, I can only use a level teaspoon of cacao per serving of Huel else the chocolate flavour gets a bit bitter. Perhaps try using a bit less? I also use 1/4 Alpro coconut to 3/4 water as my fluid. I find this adds a nice creamy/sweetness to the Huel - keep experimenting until you find your blend
My immediate thought here is that I hope the price for Huel never goes up (only the consumer-base), and having to mix the separate flavours and then store and sell way more individual products seems inefficient. If there are consequences on the price, then they hit all variants at once (because they each require seperate overproduction). If there is sufficient data on what flavours are sold in what capacities consistently, and storage requirements wouldn’t change, then great.
Until they decide to sell them flavoured, I can only recommend what many members in similar threads have reported of doing: Keep your Huel in a large enough container that you can mix up several bags in it in bulk; then it should be no issue to prepare flavoured stock of Huel every once in a while.
