Huel / Saturo / Soylent / etc

I was thinking about this on my drive home today
If the cost per meal is the same, I’ll definitely be getting it.
If the cost per meal is higher, I’m gonna be put off

Looks like they already had a launch event.

Thai Green Curry and Tomato & Herb flavours.

Interesting!

Yup, I was there! :joy:

Nice. Did you get to try both? Which was better?

I actually backed this on Kickstarter a few months back, and it’s set to ship next month. Encouraging that Huel are thinking along similar lines.

That looks really interesting - is not heard of it!

RE: Hot and Savoury Huel I found the Tomato and Basil a little bit ‘meh’ - by no means bad but it didn’t wow me. The Thai Curry was/is excellent though - not spicy enough for my personal taste perhaps but it’s easy to add that to taste.

They’ve managed to keep it to less than £3 a meal too which is excellent value for what you’re getting. Much more expensive than the powders but it’s a totally different product.

Back on this train and found a delicious tasting combo so far:

Yfood Choclate + half scoop of low calorie hot chocolate.

On another planet compared to Huel and not lumpy or anything - really impressed with this combination and Yfood in general.

I’ve moved from Huel to YFood and love the change. YFood is so much nicer to drink, the premixed shakes are lovely, like Yazoo. Even the powder is nice, although slightly grainier than the premixed.

I recently restarted on Huel, having seen the new Salted Caramel & Banana flavours released in their Black Huel.

Both taste great, and have fully sold me back onto the train, just need to refine the quantities etc to get the perfect blend

I haven’t gone pre mixed, I am sure it tastes nicer but a bit more expensive and I can’t order the taster pack as I can’t have caffeine so no cheap way to try unfortunately!

Happy with the combination so far though it goes down very milkshake like and much nicer than Huel which I couldn’t stand in the end (black chocolate) ended up selling a bag on eBay to get rid of it!

Quick heads up for those with a Saturo subscription worth less than €100. There is now an additional delivery fee of €10 and you will be charged import fees and VAT if your order is over a certain amount. My £55 subscription this month ended up costing me almost £75, going from the cheapest option to the most expensive. There was no communication from Saturo to indicate any changes, and only a quiet amendment to the shipping details page. I’ll be buying mine from Amazon going forward.

I always buy Saturo from Amazon anyway, simply because it gets delivered faster. Although the bars don’t seem to be available on Amazon at the moment which is annoying.

Need to post referrals in here @edwardrobert:

Received this email from Saturo’s founder today, and a follow up from Saturo today to remind me about the email, and I imagine to confirm that it was genuine.

Looks like they’re overhauling the product line up that will lead to a significant change to the 500ml range. I much prefer the taste of the tetra packs anyway, so this is not much of a concern to me. I do worry a little about Saturo’s future though. I get the impression they aren’t doing too well, so I’m anxious with what these changes might be.

I suppose the move to working from home hasn’t helped them. Easier and cheaper for people to make their own lunch than when people were office based

I just took advantage of the discount and ordered a few more 500ml.

I hope the original flavor doesn’t get discontinued. They already don’t make it in the 330ml.

I have to say, pound for pound, Saturo consistently has the best flavor for me across the RTD, the powder and the bars. And that’s coming from someone who has regularly used Huel, Soylent and Jimmy Joy as well.

Completely agree! I personally prefer the texture of the 330ml variant. Saturo have taste and texture nailed IMO. It’s the perfect balance. It’s also the most consistently good. I’ve never had a bad batch from Saturo. Compared to Huel, where I’ve only had one or two batches that were actually pleasant. Had a few bad Soylent batches that were lumpy, smelly, and gross. But Saturo has been consistently good.

I think YFood is nicer, because they’ve gotten so close to just replicating the taste and texture of a regular milkshake, but like milkshakes that makes them too sweet tasting for me to drink multiple times daily.

On Huels Instagram today….

Anyone got the new Huel shaker?

Looks much better. Might have to cop.
