I recently flipped from Huel to JJ due to the recent big increase in price. I was eating Huel for breakfast and lunch since August 19. Having had a few first JJ shakes, I must admit I am not a big fan. I don’t think it’s unpallatable, but Huel to me is much nicer. Maybe I also need to adjust a bit to it. I currently have Active Chai Latté and Active Banana, as I like the big bags because it’s less waste.
The consistency is what strikes me as the biggest difference, I don’t really like the powdery, thick consistency that much, so I’ll probably have to tinker a bit with the water ratio’s. I also noticed that there was a more dense sludge at the bottom of my shaker (I make it and let it stand in the fridge for a bit to thicken up, like Huel), so I need to remember to give it a shake before I start to drink it
I also have the feeling JJ is less sweet, but maybe that’s because I’ve only tried the Chai.
I do like the shaker more, it’s brighter and I like the fact that it’s small and cute (I ordered the small version).
Not product related per se, but I also have the impression the Huel communicty is more active and there is more information on the product composition, like heavy metal analysis, caffeïne analysis,… I would urge the people from JJ to have a look at the Huel website and also have that kind of information ready for their users
So all in all, not love at first sight, but let’s see if it starts to grow. I’ll keep you informed
