    Seems only some people can. When you click on someone's name it goes, Profile Page, Start Conversation, Follow, Ignore.

    No, what was your diet like before having Huel.
    I have zero issues swapping to 100% Huel.

    It usually has effects of its a drastic change in diet, if you already eat well it doesn't make much difference.

    Probably the sudden drastic change, at a guess. Are you eating only huel or just one meal replacement per day or?

    one shake a day so far along with healthier food. Did try the sweet and savoury to replace second meal but didn’t like it.

    will see anyway if there is a pattern.


    Read on huel forum that it could possibly by the sweetener in the sweeter variants.

    Alright anyone want my hit and savoury?

    Rather it not go to waste

    used 2 scoops from tomato and 2 scoops from madras. Both perfectly clean not touched otherwise.

    and one sealed one can’t remember flavour.


    I just can’t eat them, my gag reflex is just to much can’t even swallow two spoons worth.

    happy to send out for free so doesn’t go to waste. All together so a single postage.

    How about I do a swap with you? Those are the two flavours I prefer. I can send you two of the other ones. Honestly, I probably wont bother with the hot ones again, well, maybe keep a bag or two for emergencies :)

    Also, recently I tried the premade cold Huel... wow, it's horrible! I think the best word to describe it is gloopy....

    I got in touch with them on Twitter about the sweet and sour one and said it was awful and they sent me a different one to try. Tbh the Madras one and the chilli seem the best.

    Not tried the tomato one yet but korma was horrific, Thai curry is ok.

    The sweet and sour is the best, tomato is good but it needs a hot sauce :)

    @Craterloads I know what you mean by the gag reflex. Thankfully only one bag (thai green) does that for me.

    If they aren't already in the post, I'm more than happy for someone else to take them that hasn't tried any of them yet.

    The new Banana RTD is really good. The mexican hot and savoury works well in a tortilla wrap as well.

    Moved my sub forward as I'm a big fan of Salted Caramel. Came today, it's quite nice, but if anything it's a little too sweet maybe?

    Do they deliberately make the Huel bars taste like *****?

    The health craze guys at work have been going through all the different protein bars and paleo/keto type products, so I've been sampling a load. They brought some Huel ones in today... Absolutely the worst 'food' I've ever tried, I reckon... and that includes all the old ration packs from inferior nations' armies!!
    If their aim is enticing you to replace meals with these things, they seem to have it completely backward.
