I recently ordered 20 cases of various flavors from Amazon. I found sale prices, then stacked five on subscribe-and-save for additional savings.
Different flavors had different expiration dates. My exact question: at what point is the expiration date to soon to be shipping out?
I understand that 1) Soylent is good beyond the one-year expiration date, and 2) Soylent operates under a FIFO process. If you get an order delivered January 24, 2018 it is unreasonable to expect an expiration date of January 23, 2019. But if you get an order delivered January 24, 2018, an expiration date of February 24, 2018 would be disappointing.
In my case, I got six cases that all expire May 8, 2018. Three-and-a half months is technically acceptable, but it also means I’ve now got to prioritize my consumption of three cases of cacao and three cases of mocha first, as opposed to alternating between all six flavors, as I originally intended. (The other 14 cases expire anywhere from July-November 2019.)
