I was happy to get a box this week with 4 new Huel flavors to try, and overall I am very satisfied with them.
The first one I tasted was the spicy Indian curry. It surely tasted authentically Indian, like it was made with a real Indian masala. It seemed like a sort of gruel that people might eat in an Indian village somewhere. Since it is rated 3 chilis, I was afraid it might be too hot, but the heat level was reasonable, and it may be a little less spicy than the Thai chili, which is rated only 2 chilis. Overall I liked it.
Next came the Mexican chili. Bingo! This may be the best of the bunch. It had a hearty, sastisfying taste, and again, seemed like the real thing. You could easily imagine this being part of a real Mexican meal.
The yellow coconut curry was certainly edible, but a little disappointing for me. It just went down as fairly bland and lacking in punch. It does appear to have real shredded coconut in it, but the coconut taste was mild. Adding raisins to it was cute, but a little incongruous. However, it does appear to be a good option for a healthy, warm breakfast Huel.
Last but not least was the sweet and sour, and yes(!), ladies and gentlemen, we have another winner. It was tangy and sweet, but not too much of either - the taste was just right. It is interesting to note that this was not clearly based on any national cuisine, altho it comes close to some Chinese dishes that I have had.
Btw with all of these I found it helpful to add a little salt and/or cilantro and/or lemon or lime juice. Those can really bring the flavors to life.
So thumbs up for Huel Hot and Savory! There are 2 flavors that I love (Mexican chili & sweet and sour), 2 that l like and would gladly order again (Thai green chili & Indian curry), and 2 that are pretty good and which I might get again (tomato and yellow coconut).
Thanks to Huel for coming out with this fine line of healthy and reasonably priced products.
