I just made my first shake with new vanilla, and I really like it. I think the primary improvement is that the taste of artificial sweeteners is much reduced. In fact, the sweetness as a whole is reduced. I always mixed my original vanilla with about 30% UU to make it less sweet. I don’t have to do that now.
Everyone is different, but I’m surprised by the negative reactions here so far. I find the flavor to be a pretty mild vanilla. And it actually tastes like vanilla, unlike original which, to me, was just sweet.
I do agree that it takes additional flavors differently. The kefir I added was more pronounced, and the frozen mango chunks I added (after first tasting the Huel without them), were less pronounced. Nothing that can’t be adjusted.
Tomorrow I’ll try mixing it with chocolate Huel, which some here have recommended.
