Has anyone else had a bad experience with lot L5259 (exp. 09/16)? I have been eating Soylent for the majority of my breakfasts for nearly a year. I ordered a box of one week in mid March and it was the worst smelling and tasting Soylent I’ve had yet. It is also darker than usual. I’ve experienced flavor changes between orders before but after trying a couple servings of this one, I have no desire to eat any more of it.
I contacted customer service about this to ask for a replacement order and they gave me one, which I was grateful for. I opened the first bag and in the new order and realized it has the exact same bad taste and smell. It also has the same lot number and expiry date. I would have a very hard time believing this is just a normal variation in flavor. I’m guessing one of the ingredients has gone bad or it was mixed improperly.
Right now, I’m not sure what to do. I have 12 bags of Soylent that I have no interest in eating, and I’m afraid if I order another box, it will be the same. I am thinking I might just go a month or two without it and maybe order again when a new version comes out.
