I saw on a post somewhere that they are working on the ability to add singular items to subscription mailings, but no word on when it may be live.
This statement actually made me think that a single large scoop was an even better idea, rather than convince me otherwise. It might make getting the full 127g easier, since it seems nearly impossible to achieve in the small cups. Also, for weighing, it would be easier to weigh in the singular large scoop vs. scooping into a separate container to weigh. It would be easier to cram/pack a single large scoop, no?
But if I’m at say 122g the small scoop is helpful in only getting the addition 5g I need to get to the 127g needed. The larger scoop would fool your eyes and result in grabbing maybe 15g additional and possibly result in me having to then take powder out to reach the desired 127g.
If you are concerned about the caloric intake of -5 to +15 grams of Huel, you should be using a scale and nit a scoop of any size.
My original scoop was cracked, so I use a 1/4 cup measure because I already have one in my kitchen. It’s a sturdy white plastic because the metal one I have is already in use as as coffee measure. I don’t have issues with Huel dust static. If the first scoop is tightly packed it doesn’t fall apart in the shaker, then I scoop the second one a little less tightly. I once weighed the scoop at about 45 grams - so I’m not hitting exactly 127g, but i don’t care.
idk, seems like it shouldn’t be so difficult
The fiber is killing me to start. I miss a couple of days and it’s like starting over. I’d replace most of my meals if fiber was lower.
At first I was skeptical of this product. But as I find myself in the Middle East with not so good dining facilities I gave it a go. I must say I was surprised at the “oaty” flavor and grittiness, so I worked with the amount of water I used and found a happy medium. I’m not fond of the chocolate, strawberry, or banana flavor boosters, but I’m a man that likes full flavor not just a hint of it. So I burn through a bag quickly, but I did find if you add Tang or Black Cherry Mio you get great tasting concoction. As some of the other folks already stated, a lower carb version would be nice. I was on a Keto diet and had great success dropping body fat, will I be able to see the same results with just 1500 calories of Huel and a few healthy snakes in a day? Only time will tell.
Now to my question/suggestion:
Any way to get the the powder in a finer consistency?
Please tell me more about how you use healthy snakes
Tang or Black Cherry Mio + Huel? I like where you’re going with this, @EWA78. The only way to get the powder into a finer consistency that I can think of would be using a blender or perhaps using a blender ball when shaking to really help disperse the lumps. I’m sure you already thought about the blender though!
Darn spell check…
I believe that one surving is actually 7/8 of a cup, not 1 cup, But I suppose it isn’t that important. On to more important things, could you considered using Chia instead of flax? I believe that it would improve the texture, and also flax has an annoying aftertaste. I love the taste except for the flax aftertaste, But my boyfriend will not use the product because of this aftertaste. Also make be bag have a zip or Velcro closure, add a small handle or knob to more easily secure the lid of the shaker, provide a discount if you add a flavor boost to your subscription, and provide an option that you would like to be emailed the digital instructions booklet instead of receiving a paper one. Also sell a sleeve for the shaker so you could put it in there and clip it to your belt or hang it from a shoulder strap. I suppose you could also do this by modifying the design to include a carabiner or a place where you can put a shoulder strap. I walk around and I would like to have the shaker with me because I normally do not carry a backpack because it hurts my back if I carry it for too long. Also, drinking from it while it is on my shoulder will make sure I don’t accidentally drop it or something while I am on the bus. I know that switching to metal would probably be too costly, but it would be helpful if you could apply some sort of oder resistant coating to the shaker or do something so that the plastic doesn’t keep absorbing the odors of different flavors. Perhaps switched to silicone, and it would be collapsible as well as odor resistant. Plus add flavor boosts where you can drink it hot so you could have a Huel Hot latte.
Please help us gluten frees out with GF flavor boosts! I’m grateful I can have Huel with my boatload of restrictions, but additional options (which I think are probably really delicious) would be amazing.
