Cacao tastes very much like any kind of chocolate diet drink, like SlimFast in the mid-00s. I’ve gotten one box of it, and it’s going to take me forever to force my way through it. I know some might be into it, but it’s definitely not my cup of tea.
I’m looking forward to whatever the new flavor that replaces Nectar is, as I really loved Nectar (I still have two cases left, and am portioning them out over the next semester). Hopefully, though, it’s not strawberry. Strawberry seems to be the default “other” flavor for diet-type drinks, and I have fears that any Soylent formulation of it would just fall into that trap.
