I am drinking my first bottle of 2.0 now, and holy shit! It’s SO much better than the powdered forms I tried previously. No grit in the texture (though there is a bit of a chalky aftertaste) and the taste itself does not have the Play-Doh quality I detested so much previously. It’s still a bit unpleasant, but vastly more drinkable with no additives. I had to add copious amounts of cocoa to the powder to even get it down into my gullet, but I can drink this with no problem.
Unfortunately, with the cost as it is, it’s hard to imagine this as a full-time, or even more than once a day, replacement, but when it reaches that point, I am all the way in. Soylent, to me, has now had its reality match its ambition. Good on ya, dudes.
