I use the New and Improved Vanilla and I don’t think it’s sweet at all…
I read a lot of posts where people are saying that they think the New and Improved Vanilla is so sweet. I might be used to sweet but it does not bother me at all. The other day I was at the gym and bought a protein shake there. I couldn’t believe how sweet it was!!!
It was like ten times New and Improved Vanilla… I couldn’t believe that this was the protein shake I was used to before Huel and I met. Back then I thought that was a regular shake which was good for me to take every day.
Good to find someone who doesn’t find it too sweet too!! Then again I have a huge sweet tooth so I’m not the most reliable New Vanilla is the only base I drink alone: it tastes like original with vanilla flavour system!
That’s great to hear! Thanks. It’s crazy, answering Facebook DMs earlier and I had two messages from two separate people. Message 1 - this is disgustingly sweet I want my money back. Message 2 - ummm this tastes really bland. Both were referring to New and Improved Vanilla!
Hahha yeah it’s crazy how radically people’s tastebuds differ, kudos to you and the team for creating a product that’s both healthy and (some) people manage to enjoy it over time: my dad always says “if it tastes good, it’s probably not healthy!”
Please never ever stop making Original Vanilla though, I feel like that’s the best mildly sweet base for flavour boosts
In all honesty I don’t care for it but also don’t find it “too sweet”, rather there is an uncomfortable aftertaste that is quite bitter, maybe the sucralose? I still think it’s more toffee than vanilla though lol
Tim, panic ye not. you can’t please all the people, all of the time. I was worried, having read those reviews… but I honestly think that the new vanilla is a huge improvement on the old one. so I’ve transitioned…
Interesting reading this thread, when I started Huel I had to use flavour boosts to make it how I like it as I found the vanilla new and improved bland but now two months on I love it on its own and everything else is too sweet. Also really like the Huel with coffee added. Great product.
My first order is the new vanilla,and I do find it pretty sweet. Do you guys recommend the original vanilla,or the u/u instead? I was scared the u/u would be too oaty tasting, which is why I went for vanilla. I’m not keen on the taste of coffee, and I’m currently adding cacao powder and extra water to tone it down a bit. I’d be happy to have to add sweetner, but I’m not keen on porridge so if it’s too oat tasting that would be a deal breaker.
U&U is oaty tasting and not sweet so I wouldn’t recommend it on its own (though do try, just in case). As you’re finding New Vanilla is too sweet, try ordering a bag of U&U and having half and half. You’ll hopefully find a mix that’s the right sweetness for you and you don’t waste any that way.
Hueller for about 10 months now using u/u and old vanilla. I had not tried the new ones so my last order was a bag of each of the four flavours so I could decide on the one to order going forward. What do you know… I really like them all. Some meals I just fancy unflavoured and other times coffee or a vanilla. Just enjoying the variety to be honest so my next order will be one of each as well!
