As a background, I enjoy anything vanilla and do not have very strong dislikes when it comes to food in general. After experimenting with the unflavored, unsweetened Huel for a very brief bit, I have stayed with the Original for a year and on an average, Huel constitutes a meal and a half each day - has been a big part of managing my type 2 diabetes. I do not add anything additional to my Huel -just 31/2 scoops and I enjoy the taste.
So I had a pretty open mind when I got the email about the new vanilla and voluntarily changed my subscription to try it out. Boy was it a let down - The flavor is overpowering and just not palatable. I am struggling through my 3 bag of my 4 bag subscription - I have to dunk a substantial amount of cinnamon powder to mask the taste, which I hate to do.
I have switched the subscription back to the original, but honestly it is a little disappointing to see that the original might go away.
I have seen posts from Huel saying that we cannot satisfy everyone, but honestly that is not a great answer. I am reasonably sure a lot has been said about this topic - but Huel - submitting a request to you guys to reconsider your stand on the original…
