Literally, I spat out a crunchy black insect from my Soylent yesterday. It’s possible that this bug was introduced during setup after I opened the bag (e.g. while mixing powder in pitcher), but my local environment has a few mitigating factors:
- I was drinking from a Blender Bottle whose cap remains shut between sips
- I poured into the blender bottle from a pitcher which remains sealed in the fridge
- I clean and inspect my pitcher and blender bottle before each use
So, I suspect this is a zero-day bug which was in the powder all along. Unfortunately, the bug cannot be reproduced as I washed it down the drain.
It’s also possible this was caused by a race condition between the bug flying around the desk and the Soylent meeting my lips. Again, I probably would have noticed this and did not.
To be clear, I’m not complaining! Bugs are inevitable, the world is full of them. Just curious if anyone else has encountered a similar bug.
