Huge fan of Soylent. Tried, would buy again.
Can’t though, due to an error I made many years ago in deciding to be born in the UK instead of America. I know, what a fool!
Anyway, after sampling many of the available options, I settled on Jake, it’s pretty good. Shipping to the UK is free and takes just a few days. They’ve just now started to offer US shipping. For $33.
Shipping a month supply of Soylent from the states to me in the UK is next to impossible, but if you jump through the required hoops and arrange a US reshipper, the shipping costs and import duty is about $300. I worked it out a while back, but it’s that or more.
So… $33 to go west, $300 to go East? What’s the problem here?
Sure, this could be classed as a rant, but it’s a still a valid point. There’s a very high probability that I’d with Jake and return to Soylent, if only it were possibly to actually buy it.
So really, how can the guys in Amsterdam make this possible, but the guys in America cannot?
