    Anyone here use HUEL?

    My mate does and I tasted it. Wasn't bad .

    Was abea to make a batch and drink it in under 3mins. Which with my job is about all I get for break anyway.

    Anyone have any experience?

    Yep, if you decide to get it let me know and you can have a referral.

    Have it for lunch at work Monday-Friday. Does the job, started having it to lose weight (control calories) but kept it going after I reached my goal. Quick to make, somewhat cheap and not as nutritionally vacant as a Sainsbury's sandwich might be. Not exciting to consume, though. Mint choc FTW.

    I actually enjoy mine, on the morning I make a shake 450ml cold water and 3 scoops.
    I then drink half for breakfast and half for dinner.
    The dinner time half is loads better, zero lumps and thickened up slightly.

    Only tried New Vanilla and Berry so far, got an original vanilla and mint on the way next though.

    Vanilla is so versatile though, in the blender with frozen berries of choice, strawberries especially nice.

    Was pleasantly surprised by the gluten free coffee. Ordered that and the chocolate mint which is pretty nice.

    If anyone wants a referral let me know.

    I'm thinking of buying this after next pay day to reduce my food intake and spending at breakfast and lunch. I'll be looking for referrals then, after 26th

    No need to advertise for referrals. Just refer yourself, my son, wife all have Huel, daughter next then parents, the in-laws and so on.

    I used it for a while in the evenings. (Working late, dog walking, kids = no time to cook anything past a frozen pizza which is bad).

    I like it, does the job and fills me up, want to get back on it actually.

    I wish you could buy a taster/starter pack for something around £10. Would like to try it for a day or too without having to spend a lot of money on something I may hate after trying it

    It mostly tastes like porridge ie oatey. I think it's the flax seeds get most people it makes it grainy.
    If you go on their forum and put your location you might get lucky and someone will send you some.

    Don't they do the pre-made drinks now? Maybe could find a local stockist of those?

    Bought a 'kit' to try for a month to replace my meal deals that I usually get for dinner, will see how it goes.

    I mix a table spoon of coffee and coca powder in mine and it tastes really nice, it is a bit heavy though so takes a while to drink.

    Make it thinner then.
    Mine ends up fairly thin, like double cream.

    Original is now my favourite flavor.

    Does it really fill you up? Been thinking about trying it from a weight loss perspective
