I just started drinking Huel, and was happy with it. However, I’m putting my orders on hold to see if they end up bringing back the old powder or not.
I’m only posting to say that it’s too bad they’re making changes to a product that has been around for a while and seems to be generally well loved. The main reasons I’m canceling are because of the kombucha. There are many articles online (from reputably, science-based sources, including the NIH) that it is not beneficial for health, and may even be unsafe to drink.
On top of that, the new warning about shellfish is off-putting, as I generally try to keep kosher. Still, that maybe wouldn’t be a deal breaker, since I guess the implication is that there really is no shellfish and that the warning is just there as a formality.
But really, companies should learn the lesson of the past: if you have a successful product, don’t change it. Coke in the 1980s should have taught everyone that.
