So I ordered Joylent some time ago, but picked it up today due to being away for the last few weeks. First impressions:
There’s a paper with some info. @Koningsbruggen wants to make it really sure that he doesn’t take responsibility for the contents of this stuff, and he sells that message really hard (“I don’t know squat to be terribly honest”). It’s very lighthearted and though some of the homor is, uh, less successful, all in all I think it’s nice and presonal. This is obviously not Rosa Labs or Veridian Dynamics; it’s some dude on the Internet.
The bags of powder are all sealed and have made the transport without issues. None has burst. At first I was confused by the instruction to “open up a bag of Joylent and remove the small packet of oil”, since I couldn’t see any oil packets inside the powder bags. Then I found the two separate bags of oil, each containing ten smaller bags with oil. These smaller bags have, however, leaked during transport, and though the larger bags have mostly held tight, a small amount of oil has leaked out into the cardbord box. This is obviously not the ideal way to package the oil. I tried to sort the little bags into ones that had leaked and ones that had not, but this proved to be no easy task, as some were half-empty and some almost completely empty, and since I don’t know how much should be in each bag in the first place, it’s hard to tell if all of the bags have actually leaked during transport. I don’t have scales to weigh them, either.
Hopefully @Koningsbruggen can find a better way to package the oil and send me some new oil packages (my order is #230, hopefully you still have my details), like @Spaceman fixed his leaking powder cups.
Later: taste test!
EDIT: Didn’t mention: These are ziplock bags. So ziplock bags works well for powder, not so well for oil.
