This is a review of the Huel Banana flavour.
When I hear banana flavour, I tend to think of banana tasting candy. That’s been my experience with most artificial banana flavouring. And I hate that taste.
I also didn’t enjoy any of the flavour boosts when they initially came out.
So when I saw Huel Banana I was sceptical. How would this taste?
I google’d around and tried to see if there was any reviews that compared Huel Banana with something that I could use as a reference.
I saw one lonely post on reddit where the user notes that “It genuinely does taste like real banana”.
Ok, but what I want to know is how does this user feel about the banana tasting candy flavour?
DanHuel part of the Huel nutrition team also says “I would say the flavour is much more like a natural banana flavour than artificial.”.
But then again he’s part of the Huel Team, so we have to take this with a grain of salt.
I’ve tried the chocolate, berry and (new and old) vanilla. In general I like them with berry being the most artificial, in my opinion.
So I took the plunge and bought a bag of Huel Banana along with a bag of Huel Berry.
I am pleased to say that “DanHuel” was indeed correct, it does more like natural banana than artificial. There is still a hint of artificial, I won’t deny that, but it’s a very pleasant flavour, and I can even drink it by itself. However 1 scoop of Banana, with 2 Scoops of Berry is my preferred way of drinking it.
Next up I will be ordering Huel Banana and Huel Chocolate to mix them.
