New Hol Food Vanilla: Review

This morning it happened. My vanilla Hol Food arrived!

I had recently been really missing the neutral taste of Soylent when I heard that Hol Food was launching a mild vanilla so this was perfect timing. The packaging is the same as the new chocolate, with those shapes that make me think of the old “Somebody That I Used To Know” Gotye music video. Regardless, everything arrived when they said it would all looks well packed as have all other packages.

Now to taste. I scooped out 2 scoops of my vanilla into my beloved shaker bottle and prepared according to the package directions by adding 350ml of water and combining. The Taste is very mild. Less sweet even than the chocolate, providing a very neutral beverage meal. Just a whisper of vanilla and a hint of bitterness/ metallic flavour. The metallic flavour is not present in the new chocolate but it is not bad at all, just noticeable. This stuff actually smells exactly like a slimmfast vanilla milkshake, if anyone has had those. The texture is smoother than any other Lent, and comparable to the texture of the new chocolate formula but perhaps a touch thinner. Less grainy even than Soylent 2.0. I must emphasize that this is actually the smoothest stuff, with zero noticeable grain whatsoever. Really good stuff though.

With all Hol Food products, I find they benefit from being prepared an hour before consumption and left in the refrigerator to become more homogenous and colder.

Nutritionally, here is what we are working with…

My recent taste test of Jake Food has given me a newfound appreciation for this Hol Food.. Not all Lents are this delicious and definitely not all are this smooth.

OVERALL GREAT, but I prefer the new chocolate.
