Did I buy genuine Soylent?


#1

Two days ago I ordered a 3 meal pack of powdered Soylent on Amazon to try it out. Tonight I read that “any products labeled Soylent but sold outside of soylent.com are unauthorized imitations.” Now I’m pretty sure this is just a guy on Amazon reselling individual packages that he bought in bulk, but is it likely that I bought an imitation, or the real thing?


#2

You bought the real product, from a reseller.


#3

It would be hard to fake the package. I agree, it’s probably a seller getting rid of excess.


#4

You got bootleg Soylent, it probably has bad English subtitles and questionable video quality.


#5

Did you make sure it was version 1.5? At worst, you wont try Soylent as it is now and would give you a wrong idea of what it is now.


#7

Good point. I didn’t check on that, but I figured I’d be content to try any version. I’m aware there are differences, but I figured this would give me a good idea to get me started.

Thanks for the info.

It turns out I received a 4 meal pack of 1.5, even though the description on Amazon said 3 meal pack. My guess is Amazon has the same item # regardless of version.
