What’s scariest about your post is that I just finished a Huel-based meal using peanut butter probably as you were writing this.
Ok, folks. Caramel flavor was good. Today’s taste test was the new apple cinnamon. I was skeptical. I didn’t pull punches when it came to my opinion on the old strawberry (yuck) and banana (double yuck) Huel flavor additives. And this is despite the fact that I regularly enjoy real strawberry, banana, and applesauce in my Huel mixes. So I was skeptical about another fruit-based Huel flavor additive.
Not to get too dramatic, but [slow clap] job well done. The apple cinnamon is good. As before, 200 ml water + 1 scoop vanilla Huel + 1/3 teaspoon apple cinnamon flavor, shaken not stirred. Good. Passed the basic taste test. Mild flavor, but not overpowering.
Then, I was ready for a new creation. I had just finished a 20 hr fast and workout. It was time for a serious meal. I placed 3 scoops of Vanilla Huel + 1 teaspoon Huel Apple Cinnamon flavor in microwave-safe bowl. Poured in a bit of milk and mixed/stirred with a fork till it was a thick consistency. Microwaved for 2 minutes. It thickened and smelled up the kitchen like hot fresh oatmeal. Had to thin a little bit with some water and milk. Heated for another 30 seconds. I then spooned some natural peanut butter periodically onto the top and ate the whole thing while drinking a liter of water. Taste was very nice. And, it’s been a while since I’ve done 3 Huel scoops in a meal. Filling. Very filling. It’s kinda like a porridge / oatmeal type of consistency. And because there’s already a boatload of protein in this, no need to fire up the pan to make eggs or sausage. It’s really one of the most convenient, filling breakfasts I’ve had in a while. And it’s nice to have it hot.
Caramel flavor: 2 Deron thumbs up. Would order again
Apple cinnamon flavor: 2 Deron thumbs up. Would order again.
The new flavors seem a bit more potent than the old ones. I didn’t have to use as much as before to get the taste through to the final product. An improvement in taste and having it last longer more than makes up for the $3 incremental price increase compared to the old flavors.
