Three New Flavours for Hot & Savoury! 🌶

I’ve been mixing T&H with TGC as I’m not too keen on T&H on its own. Works perfectly for me.

Great question Ivan! It’s a bit of a compromise between product development and nutrition because what we’ve done is create a Korma flavour that tastes so so good.

We have 6 H&S flavours now and so we don’t really see anyone having the Korma flavour for 100% of their calories day in day out.

Sorry for the delayed update. Korma is in stock everywhere! :curry:

I tried Sweet & Sour last night. Had high hopes as I usually love sweet & sour dishes but was sorely disappointed this time. It tastes like T&H to me, with the addition of something mildly sweet. Will have to mix with TGC to use up. Sorry Huel, will be giving this one a miss in future :-1:

My Huel Hot&Savory order came in the mail yesterday and I tried them all out (except for the korma one) and here are my thoughts:

Thai green curry:

  • Flavor is absolutely BOMB = 10/10
  • Texture is a bit runnier than the other ones and I do love a more solid texture so I might try and add a bit less water = 9/10

Tomato&Herb:

  • Flavor is okay, but could of used a bit more depth in it so I’ll give it 8/10
  • Texture wise I love this one! This has a more solid texture and has the feel of a risotto! I love it = 10/10

Mexican Chilli:

  • Flavor didn’t like this one, is my least favorite. Didn’t taste like chilli at all and I think I don’t like it because the taste of cumin is a bit overwhelming (and I don’t like cumin)? Don’t know if there is actually cumin in it, but it tastes like it! I will try it again tho, maybe I just messed up the cooking part. So for now 3/10
  • Texture was great, just as the tomato one! = 10/10

Madras:

  • Flavor I LOVED this one! I am normally not a spicy kind of gal but this tastes so amazing and not that spicy at all. Not the kind of spicy that you have to drink some water and your mouth is on fire, but spicy like there is so much depth in this dish! = 10/10
  • Texture: loved the texture same as the tomato&herb one = 10/10

Sweet&Sour:

  • Flavor: didn’t know I would like this one, but it surprised me! Not my all time favorite but I do like it = 8/10
  • Texture: felt more like a porridge texture, so less grainy. I do like it a bit more if there are some chewy parts in it so texture wise it gets an 8/10

Thanks so much @Bee and @Charls for your reviews! Sorry Bee you aren’t a fan of the Sweet and Sour, good shout on mixing half and half - I feel like with Huel that is always a good solution! I’m sure we’ll come up with another flavour bomb you love. What’s your favourite at the moment, the TGC?

Charlotte that review is so good, thanks for taking the time. I assume you adapted @David’s testing protocol for this very scientific test? :laughing: Can’t believe though that Mexican is your least favourite on flavour! Mex, TGC and now Madras are jostling for top spot for me!

Keep the reviews coming guys, would love to hear more!

No problem at all Tim! I love to review products! Hahaha I didn’t exactly do it like David :joy:, but I did make a half of a scoop of each flavor and then compared each taste and texture to each other :blush: Yeah I was surprised too that I didn’t like the Mexican Chilli one, but maybe something went wrong with the cooking part so I’ll try it again! But just out of curiosity: Is there cumin in it? :crazy_face:

Have a great day Tim!

Yes @Tim_Huel TGC definitely tops my list. I love Korma too but, sadly, my gut doesn’t take kindly to sultanas which I hadn’t thought about when ordering a bag. I have to spit them out or suffer.

I registered for this forum for the sole purpose of saying how unbelievably DELICIOUS new Korma (Yellow Coconut Curry) Hot & Savory is! My goodness, it’s FANTASTIC! Beyond all expectations. The sultanas are such a wonderful addition!!! Sweet & Sour is good, too. GUYS I LOVE YOU! You make healthy eating much easier.
PS. This is coming from a person who strongly dislikes the taste of the HUEL powder!

S&S works well with TGC, one scoop of each. Similarly a scoop of each T&H and TGC. Very versatile flavours.

Madras is really nice but, Mexican Chilli is just the best. Well done Huel.

Howdy folks. First-time poster. I am as nuts about Huel as everybody else here - convinced it will follow and outdo Gymshark commercially. Truly a brand for the ages so kudos to Julian and the team. Anyway, ordered H&S, loved Thai, Mexican, and Madras but hated Sweet & Sour, could barely eat it tbh.

Overall though H&S is an excellent product and I will continue to buy it for as long as you sell it.

Excelsior!!!

Hi @Harrymetz you can mix your Sweet & Sour 1:1 with any of your other H&S flavours to use it up. What I did and it works fine.

So 1 scoop S&S 1 scoop TGC? Doesn’t that create a nondescript and confusing flavor profile!

Not for me it doesn’t. Still tastes very much of TGC. I suppose it rather depends on your taste buds though.

I added Madras, Chill and Thai Green Curry to my latest subscription to try them out.

The Good: All three really do have the flavours right. Happy to eat any of these as a quick, easy and nutritional meal. Thanks also for the freebie black lidded pot that came with it. It’s nice to have a hot-food option with Huel and I will be using it.

The Could do Better: I found the Madras to be less hot than the Chilli flavour one. I was a bit surprised that the bags were smaller than the powder, then realised that they contain half the number of ‘meals’. That’s a bit disappointing TBH. The scoops are a different shape to the V3 powder scoops, but appear to be the same volume - not sure why. I also think the pot could be improved - its made of a brittle plastic which doesn’t look like it will last long. Also I’d have prefered a lighter colour or a transparent container so I could better see the contents. This could be further improved by putting ‘fill’ markers in it for the Huel and hot water levels - none of my mesuring jugs will clearly show me 210ml, they mark the 200 and 300 ml points only.

The bad: I think the 400 calories suggested meal size is too low. Each time I’ve had these for lunch at the suggested portion size I’ve needed to go and find something else to eat about an hour later. The portion size needs to be larger to make it a filling meal. I’ll be experimenting with 500 and 600 calorie portion sizes in future. Unfortunately that will also increase the price per meal for me.

So overall would buy again and enjoyed the flavours, but I will use these for intermittent variety rather than a regular meal due to the increased costs & need to increase portion size.

Good write up mate. The boffins are Huel do seem to pay attention to feedback and they can’t give us what we want unless we tell them!

Ok so, couple of points.

Madras: no comment, haven’t tried it, don’t like madras generally as a curryZ. Did you make sure to mix and stir up all the contents of the bag before scooping it in? The contents do settle with the others so presumably the same with this, might explain lack of spices? Madras should be :fire::fire::fire::fire:

The pot things: I bought an extra one but I’ve been using them for yonks and both hand washed and dishwasher them, they’re lasting fine, wouldn’t worry about that. There is a line on the inside of the pot which is the water fill level. After stirring for the chili, before stirring for the TGC in my experience.

Scoops: were you using the old cylinder scoops or…? I’ve got the semi cone shape thingies with a flat bottom on them and had them the whole time I’ve been using huel so unless they changed again recently I have no clue on this.

Calories: well for me it works as a light lunch, if I want more calories I usually just snaffle a bar with it rather than increase the amount of H&S.

Hope some of that is useful for you dude, welcome to the world of H&S :+1:t3::wink:

Did you make sure to mix and stir up all the contents of the bag before scooping it in?

Yes I did shake up both the Madras and the Chilli quite a lot before using them. I’m odd in that I usually read the instructions that come with things :wink:

The pot things: … There is a line on the inside of the pot which is the water fill level.

I can’t see that at all in mine. Again, if it’s there, the black colour is hiding it from me. I did check for such a line before using it but if it’s there the pot colour hides it.

Nooo don’t shake, that doesn’t work, you need to physically stir it around. Either using the scoop or a large dessert spoon or something.

Here is a pic of the inside of a pot with the line clearly showing - check we are talking about the same thing here?
