Terrible Complete Protein Bars

I finally got through the last bar and I can attest, these aren’t great. Last one in was the salted caramel and while it did smell like caramel, it had none of the caramel flavor.

I think Huel would do a lot better with these doing freezedried crushed up fruit versions for flavor instead. Unfortunately in their current state I can’t in good faith recommend them to anyone even though I like the concept of them.

Please Huel, do a new version but based on fruit flavor and then use finely ground up fruit for each type of bar, blueberry, strawberry, raspberry etc, and step away from the artificial flavorings

I’m sorry, I’m not sure what you mean here. Do you work in bar manufacture? This is quite a specific recommendation.

There are no artificial flavours used in Complete Protein Bars, we use natural flavours.

My suggestion is to try using freezedried crushed up fruit variants for flavor instead of what you have now, where the flavor is very very subtle, compared to the smell of them.

I don’t work in a bar manufacturer no, but I have experimented a lot with food :slight_smile: I work in with computers all day long :slight_smile:

Really? I would assume that some sort of essence or something was used to get them to smell like this, but without having much of a flavor. Or maybe it’s just some of the other ingredients in there that mask the flavor profile you are trying to hit.

It just dawned on me that I am talking about the v3.1 bars and this is a thread about the complete protein ones.
Which I have also just bought and now tried.

The banofee was first to go and while better than the 3.1 bars, it still has a weird artificial taste, bitter and “metal-ish”? The aftertaste is definitely worse than while eating it.

Got through the last bar and unfortunately I have to agree with the original post, it didn’t get better and they were hard to get through and I won’t be reordering. Just sticking to the hot and savory range :smiley:
