Well, finally got some Original Flavor of the new Optimized Soylent. I’m really glad I was prepared for the “Maple” flavor, or I probably would’ve been completely horrified.
As it stands… I’m not sure. I don’t despise it, so I guess that’s a good thing. It helps that I like maple. Of course, I really like Original as my go-to specifically because it doesn’t really taste like much of anything. it’s the “water of food” and that’s how I wanted it to stay. Now it definitely tastes like something. But then again, 2.0 tasted exactly like buttered popcorn for the first couple of days that I drank it, and then that went away for me so maybe this will be the same. I’m hoping it will be.
So basically no definitive verdict from me at this time, and I’m hoping I can adjust to it since clearly we’re stuck with it.
