Thought I’d love H&S Mac & Cheeze and Black Vanilla powder

After enjoying H&S Mexican Chili and Black Chocolate powder on my first order, I was excited to try the Black Vanilla powder (since I kept hearing it was neutral) and the H&S Mac & Cheeze (since I love packaged Mac & Cheese.)

Unfortunately, both were not good IMO. I have to add extra of the other smoothie ingredients (juice, frozen fruit, white/chocolate milk, PB) to weaken the strong, artificial vanilla taste. I’m versed with protein powders so I thought vanilla would be good.

The Mac & Cheeze is vegan and as a cheese/dairy lover, I’ve never met a vegan cheese I liked. This was no different. Again, I have to add other ingredients to mask the terrible, fake vegan cheese taste but its proven harder with the M&C than the Black Vanilla powder. I have to add a lot of sour cream/yogurt, salsa and real shredded cheese but it still doesn’t mask the vegan cheese well.

Needless to say, it’s taken me a lot longer to get through this order, but thankfully, I’m almost done.
My plan for future orders is to always get a flavor I know I enjoy along with a new flavor to try.

If anyone has similar thoughts about the Black Vanilla powder and/or the H&S Mac & Cheeze, I’d love to know which Black powders and H&S you enjoyed. Thanks for any input. Happy Hueling :slight_smile:
