I’ve been a stoked consumer of Huel for some time. I didn’t fully understand the change to v1.1, but I rolled with it.
Unfortunately v3.0 has me buying a last bulk order of v1.1 while I research alternatives. The addition of probiotics and kombucha seems an unnecessary effort to either hop on the latest “buzz-nutrients” bandwagon or to stuff more “value adds” in the bag to justify a price increase.
As I’ve researched it, probiotic benefits are unique to each individual’s microbiome and likely not beneficial universally.
But that’s neither here nor there…
It’s the kombucha add that’s gonna kick me out of the Hueligans. Why not just let well enough alone? If folks wanna pop a proB supplement and chug a glass of brown water on the side of their daily Huel intake, that seems reasonable. Why ya gotta mash it all up into one?
If you need to increase price to cover revenue or profit shortfalls, that’s okay. But just do that, not cover it with “value adds” that don’t really add value.
Hopefully by the time I’ve gone through my 7 bags of v1.1 you’ll have received enough feedback to have either a non-tea option or will have bailed on the kombucha, but if not, thanks for the memories.
Sure have loved ya!
