Feedback on 1.7


#1

Obligatory feedback thread! @Hieronymus, hope you don’t mind me copying your comments over here to start.


#2

So the general consensus is if you liked 2.0 more than 1.6, you will like 1.7 more than 1.6?


#3

Yes, but don’t expect 1.7 to be much like 2.0.


#4

1.7 is the same as 2.0 except for necessities due to being a powder.


#5

Which makes the two significantly different in taste, texture, nutrition profile, etc.


#6

IMO 1.6 is closer to 2.0 in taste than 1.7 is.


#7

I’m drinking my first 1.7 right now, and it tastes NOTHING like 2.0 to me. I have to say, I really am not digging the aftertaste that this has. If it doesn’t grow on me quickly, I’ll be using the blender for the rest of it so I can add in things to try to mask it.

If that doesn’t work, then I’ll just stick with 2.0.

This seems far from “neutral” to me - it tastes a little salty when drinking it, and then the aftertaste (that I can’t really seem to describe) kicks in.


#8

I am an ascetic. So the fact that I can depend on each version to taste bad (always in different ways) helps my practice.


#9

Hi DigitalScrap, is the aftertaste like in 1.6? Chemically, Elmer’s gluey, fake sugary?


#10

I had never had 1.6, but it is definitely “Elmer’s gluey” - I was trying to place it, and that pretty much nails it. No real fake sugar taste though - it is a little salty initially and then I got the glue aftertaste.

I’m going to give it another go tomorrow and see how I do with it.


#11

Thanks for the report, Eric. While I want a savory/umami flavor, salty doesn’t sound good!


#12

I agree. I’m more of a 2.0 person, and just had my first 1.7 this morning. Mixed last night, kept in the fridge overnight. Was a little bummed out when I tasted it.

Important to note: I like and enjoy the taste of 2.0. I crave it. It’s delicious.

My initial thoughts on 1.7 were, “this sorta tastes like really wet paste”.

I’m sure other folks still enjoy 1.7, but I think I will be sticking to the 2.0 bottles for now.


#13

I’m having my second serving of 1.7 right now (I do individual servings when I make it), and maybe I have gotten over the initial shock of the aftertaste because it isn’t quite as bad as it seemed yesterday. While it isn’t as bad to me as it was yesterday, I still don’t LIKE it (and it still tastes a lot like glue).

Like you, I really like the way 2.0 tastes, and I too have found myself craving it - really looking forward to my next one. I was excited about potentially switching to 1.7 because of the savings, but once I run through this box, I’ll probably be sticking with 2.0 and Coffiest.


#14

Eric, I’m convinced you stop tasting it as strongly because your brain tries to protect itself from the horror by severing the neural connections responsible for detecting that taste.


#15

Ok, first taste… very similar to 1.6. Perhaps a tad less sweet and a tad thinner. While thinner might not be preferable for mouthfeel, it certainly is easy to work with (mix, clean etc). I suppose if you want it thicker you could always put in less water…


#16

Salty? Do the TerraVia ingredients taste like they are having a hissy fit, and taking their ball and going home?


#17

First glass is going down the hatch as I write this. It’s exactly what the release notes describe: a thinner, slightly saltier, less sweet rendition of 1.6. And, of course, no nausea whatsoever.


#18

Holy crap!

I ate lunch and then my 1.7 arrived a day early. I held off as long as I could. I used my scale, meant to do 108 grams 500 calories but accidentaly did 111 grams. Blender bottle with frige crushed ice, no chilling. No whey or pb2, I wanted the pure experience.

Flavor: IT WAS LIKE A THOUSAND ANGELS SPITTING IN MY MOUTH.

Texture - not like anything else, mind you Ive never used a scale before today, and I do not measure water, just fill my 30 ounce bottle up. Not today because I accounted for no extra ingredients. I know it is suppose to be thinner and it is, but its ok.

I think they hit a home run on this one, not as good as 1.5 in flavor but more like 1.6 on “mouth feel”. Honestly it was like drinking 2.0 with less sweetener added.


#19

I think it’d be 106 grams of 1.7 if my math is correct. Mine hasn’t arrive yet, but the nutrition facts say 84.8g for a 400 calorie serving.


#20

It’s always interesting to see how differently things taste to different people. I’m glad that some are liking it!

(of course, angelic spit still doesn’t sound very good to me…)
