I live in Toronto. I couldn’t believe that Soylent finally ships to Canada! As soon as I saw this I placed an order right away. (I learned about it a week after the announcement; somehow I didn’t get an email, or didn’t see it).
The package arrived in about 3 days.
Note: although the title says 1.5, this is really my first time trying Soylent ever, so it’s not like I’m comparing 1.5 to 1.3 or anything like that.
Taste: very bland, but very neutral.
Texture: very smooth/creamy. Like a melted ice cream.
The smell was somewhat familiar. I’m not sure why. It might be the oat flour (I used it once to try and make a DIY formula).
When I drank the first cup, it kinda upset my taste buds a little bit. Psychologically made me feel like I want to eat. It wasn’t hunger per se … I just felt like I want to taste some “umami”.
Next time, I added xylitol (a sweetener), and it made me actually enjoy drinking it. It also stopped the psychological hunger.
It’s easy to “over eat” Soylent. I drank three cups in one sitting, and after 10 minutes I realized that was too much. I sort of felt stuffed, but not the same way one would feel after eating too much food. It’s hard to describe. Perhaps it’s what you’d feel if you drink too much milk and/or water. Being too full made me vomit a little in my mouth.
Note: I’m not doing 100% Soylent (probably never will).
