I agree! It tastes earthy which I'm in no way mad about.
I have had trouble getting people to try my shakes lol.
regular food/junkfood eaters really want magical tastes in their mouth.
This is not magical and that's okay! The magic is how it makes you FEEL.
I was half asleep when I wrote my initial post so now that I'm awake I'll go into it a little more.
I used 100% Food's various types. They had low cal, normal, double protein, and triple protein.
Double protein tasted the best BUT I did have to grind/blend the shake myself because it would come with whole seeds in it. If you want to chew great, if you want to pound the shake BAD. haha.
I avoided Soylent first because it was always sold out. Then because of the soy and oil content yuck.
Oh 100% food had a ketosis shake too that was oily I think it was supposed to compete with Soylent and it tasted repugnant.
Next I tried SuperbodyFuel the Athlete Edition.... It tasted a lot like Huel. Oaty and not sweet at all. Very earthy.
It didn't keep me interested but it was worth trying.
Most recently I tried Pulve which is a dutch based company. Although it took 2 months to get to me (customs kept it over the xmas holiday) It has individually portioned bags. Which I liked but it also was too coarse to drink quickly. The bags btw are recyclable so I didn't feel too bad about the 72 bags I got in the mail lmaoooo.
Pulve once ground in the blender did taste the best. A little sweet and covered all the nutrition I needed.
I use myprotein "impact protein" for flavors. Chocolate mint, and Summer Fruits are probably my favorite. Some flavor and some added protein for supporting muscles hurray!
I do like Huel and their marketing.... I'll probably stick with them. I have a shipment of TSOGO coming my way too though. We'll see how that goes.
I just love not having to cook while also not eating junk or ordering food all the time!
