Huel Bars (USA)

Just sharing my thoughts. The forums seem to be bare of them.

Salted Caramel.

  • Tastes like dirt and vitamins.
  • I love salted caramel sweets, but this is nowhere close.
  • Rating 1/5


  • Not delicious, but not bad
  • I was assuming I’d like the salted caramel version better, but decided to just get 1 box of these to at least try once. Glad I did.
  • Rating 3/5


  • The cost is about $2 a bar, which compared to most protein and/or energy bars, the price is on par, and fair.

  • The taste isn’t perfect, but most bars you find in the supermarket aren’t very tasty either.

  • I do dislike the fact the Huel felt the need to add 7g of sugar to the bars as I’d like to eat little to no added sugar.


Thanks for your review!

I’m a massive fan of salted caramel, it’s funny how tastes differ.

The sugar content is a bit higher than you would like as the ingredients that contribute sugar as required to bind the ingredients together into a bar and provide the right texture.


I agree; I didn’t like the caramel but found the chocolate “good enough”. Indeed, I just ordered 2 more boxes of the chocolate, as they’re great for a late afternoon snack.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I was on the fence about ordering some of these and I think I’ll just wait until the future versions.

Peanut Butter is by far my favorite flavor. Salted Caramel next and Coffee Caramel a very close third. Chocolate is not doing it for me just like the powder, there is an odd after taste that just doesn’t sit right on my pallet. I wish I could exchange the unopened products for the ones I prefer the taste of. I suspect that’s not an option however. Chalk it up to a learning experience I guess. :man_shrugging:

I bought a box of the expiring Chocolate Orange bars with my first order. Was not very excited about them, but they grew on me, and I finished the box quicker than I hoped. [unhealthy tip warning] Really went well with a sip of good single malt scotch [/end unhealthy tip warning]

Just had a chocolate orange bar for a morning snack. They’re drier than I was expecting but still good. They look like Lärabars but since they’re not made of dates they’re not as sweet.

I agree, I was really looking forward to the bars when they were added in the US but was very soon disappointed with them. I think I have tried 4 or 5 of the flavors by adding single bars to an order and it’s the same story with each. Hard to chew, dry and chalky texture without a whole lot of flavor, very little sweetness. Dates could be a great way to fix some of those things.

I’d actually be cool if they didn’t put dates in: part of why I went back to Huel was because I was eating way too much sugar and even though it’s natural sugar I still don’t need that much (I have a family history of diabetes and so I’m trying to keep that in mind. I really don’t mind the flavor that much since I know it’s better for me than most energy bars.
