So, I’ve just had my first Vanilla Huel (2.0), thanks to the wonderful t00sp00ky for sending me his wrongly purchased bags for free. Top lad.
Opening the bag and smelling the contents, I straight away thought of vanilla ice cream. Interestingly, I asked a few co-workers what they smelt.
- Vanilla Oats
- Ice Cream
- Vanilla Cream
- Why does this look like cocaine (always one)
It’s extremely hot today in London, so I made a vanilla Huel, 500ml 2 scoops with a single ice cube and my dear God, it’s lovely. Some interesting things I have experienced that I wonder if others have too.
As soon as the liquid hits my tongue, it’s very sugary; almost like a bit of granulated sugar on my tongue. Then you get the oats and once swallowed, a hint of vanilla. It’s nicely balanced for me, personally, but the sugar experience for the first second is a bit weird. Anyone else get that? It isn’t enough to ruin it for me, might just take a bit of getting use to.
My co-worker who recommended Huel to me convinced me to get the U&U to start with, as I was leaning towards the Vanilla (how ironic). I got the Strawberry flavouring from Huel after reading a few other experiences on the forum, because it’s just a little toooooo muchhhhhhh oat flavour with the U&U, but I expected that, so no issues there.
I think from now on, I’m going to use the Vanilla as the untouched drink solution and use the U&U for cooking. Got the PDF of recipes from Huel (thanks) and there look like some great things to try.
Overall, a rough week for my eating due to my job being manic busy, but interesting tests. Tried a few things but actually prefer the Vanilla on its own. A lot of people go for a coffee solution, but that doesn’t work for me as I don’t like or drink coffee; shocker, right? I’m 26 and never lived off it.
So, I’m firmly in the Vanilla ‘boat’.
Thanks again to t00sp00ky for the generosity and next week I’ll be on the Huel path for real.
