So, I subscribed as soon as Soylent came to Canada and, as such, got a fairly early batch of 1.5.
It’s comprised of the lion’s share of my diet since.
However, one thing that I’ve noticed is that, week-box to week-box, the contents are surprisingly different.
Week one was perfect, in my opinion. Perfect balance of salty and sweet. Plenty of body without being overwhelming.
Week two was dense. Very heavy. Very grainy. Kinda salty. Separated constantly. Kinda slimy. Still kept me quite satiated.
Week three was WATERY. NO flavour to speak of. Colour was closer to white than beige. Just did NOT leave me feeling full. Couldn’t even finish the box. Switched to a new week’s portion.
Week four was somewhere between weeks one and two. Tastes good. Filling. Still some separation. Still some slime. A hell of a step up from week three, though.
However, all that said, it’s still all labeled with the production number L5133-15-052015, with the exception of week one, which I don’t have record of.
Is anyone else finding this kind of discrepancy? 1.5 was my first foray; is this common of the various iterations? It certainly explains why people seem to have such a panned critical review of the 1.5 flavour profile.
Just how homogenous IS Soylent?
