…as the realisation sank in that once my current bags of delicious chocolate and mocha flavour boosts run out, I’ll be stuck with the inferior new chocolate one and no mocha at all - because that new one is straight up, pour-it-down-the-sink disgusting.
I don’t get why any company would pull the rug out from under a consumer base who are used to a certain flavour. Pretty gutted about this to be honest and I’ve had nothing but good things to say about Huel until this point.
I tried it after an hour of freezer time and several hours of fridge time - the way I usually have it. But it’s just grim with an aftertaste that is equal parts horrible and curiously hard to describe.
I haven’t had the misfortune of trying the new flavour boosts but I’m not looking forward to them based on other people’s reviews. The old mint choc was my favourite. I read the new flavour boosts taste more like the premixed flavours. I really hope that’s not the case because all the premixed flavours are disgusting. Vanilla + old flavour boost is the only combination I enjoy.
I am REALLY waiting for some umami flavours. The peanut was a big miss for me, the salted caramel too sweet. I like the umami in the macha, but alas, that has gone. The gingerbread FB is has a bit of that going on, so that one I like, but it’s also seasonal. Looking forward to seeing what the Huel team comes up with I hope they don’t go the all salty route though, idk, probably that’s me, but the Tomato and Mushroom flavours of Feed don’t entice me.
My two favourites used to be matcha and mocha. Now matcha is gone and mocha is absolutely disgusting. I’m going to try Stevia Flavour Drops from Amazon. Won’t be buying anymore Huel boosts unless they reinstate the original flavours. Is this company trying to lose customers?!
I’ve got some matcha tea but it needs some kind of sweetener to get close to the old Huel matcha taste. I might get some stevia to add to it (although looking on Amazon it is quite expensive). I reckon it had extra vanilla in it as well. I think it’s going to take a lot of experimenting before I crack it. Maybe Huel could publish the exact recipe, as they can’t be bothered to sell it anymore.
