I’m hoping this was a one time fluke with some other explanation but figured I should share it here, just in case.
Early this morning while having her usual Soylent, my gal commented that it tasted “like cardboard”. Not knowing what cardboard tastes like, I tried a sip from her glass. Seemed fine to me, I thought nothing of it.
Then later on I had my own usual breakfast Soylent. Something was immediately Very Not Right. Almost, but not quite, unable to drink it. I wouldn’t have called it “cardboard”… it seems very faintly familiar but I can’t place it, and it’s decidedly not very pleasant. I still drank some anyway but found myself avoiding Soylent all day.
So just now after 10pm I realized I’m starving, so got my Soylent from the fridge - topping it up from the pitcher. Same thing… something is horribly wrong here. I made myself a smoothie instead with Soylent and some pineapple & orange sherbets, and they mask the weirdness enough to drink it.
I’m really hoping somehow maybe the pitcher wasn’t as clean as I thought… or something. Just for the sake of being thorough, the batch number of our latest bag of Soylent (from the new batch just delivered last week) is:
Has anyone else noticed anything very off about their Soylent recently? Going to make a new batch tomorrow, hoping it’s back to normal again. Will REALLY super clean everything just in case.
