I picked up some for December and January.
When they’re cold, they’re hard to eat, so we keep them on the counter, away from the window, and they stay ready to eat that way. Another thing I’ll do is toss one in my coat pocket when heading out, rather than the gym bag or work bag if I’m looking to eat it anytime soon. That warms it up if I want to eat it shortly, and keeps it where it’ll be warm if I want to hold out.
The taste isn’t bad - about the same texture as other protein bars, but thank God, no sugar alcohol flavor!. My kids don’t really like them, so it’s up to me and my wife (mostly me). The flavor is pretty on par with typical Huel. I didn’t find them to be very sweet whatsoever - YMMV.
Overall, not bad. I ordered 2 boxes for the first go round, but will lop off 1 box for the next order. We became accustomed to stuff like RX bars and Lara bars (my kids like the latter better), so the texture and consistency isn’t as enjoyable that it’s the first thing we’d pick up.
They do make for a good snack, and I think otherwise fulfill their purpose well. It’s sometimes nice to just grab a bar to have something to chew on, rather than taking the few minutes to mix a bottle, and know that I’m still getting great nutritional value.
I think I’d actually like to see them cut these things in half. I’d also personally prefer a Black version, so I hope they do well on these.
