Heated discussion at work. What is your opinion?


#1

Some of the people here at work who use Soylent say that they eat it and some say that they drink it?

Is there a proper use of the words eat and drink when relating to consuming a bottle of 2.0?

Just curious…I say drink for what that’s worth.


#2

Really? This is really a thing?


#3

Unfortunately, but no worries if this question dies a quiet death over there in the corner…


#4

There is no proper use, what ever you prefer. We use eat, drink, consume, photosynthesis, etc.


#5

Settled, thank you…


#6

I say chug, chug, chug, chug.


#7

I would say most people drink it, but I out crushed ice in and I chew it.


#8

I reorganize soylent.

inside me.


#9

Soylent, I want you inside me.

I shall integrate your constituent components into my meat popsicle form.


#10

You drink liquids and eat solids. Soylent 2.0 is definitely a liquid.


#11

I eat food and Soylent is most definitely a food, therefore I eat Soylent.


#12

Although I’d consider lots of soups liquids, but I’d still say I eat those. That’s just me though.


#13

In my native tongue (Chinese) we say you “drink” soup.


#14

Soylent’s a drink. I drink it.


#15

You might have a point if Soylent was in fact soup and I wasn’t intentionally making a generality to make the distinction clearer to our foreign friend.


#16

I usually vape it.

Have I been doing it wrong?


#17

I usually bypass the whole question by saying I’m going to have some. “I’m going to have some Soylent.”, “I had some Soylent.”, etc.

If I want to get fancy-shmancy, I use “consume”.


#18

In the immortal words of Charlie Kelly, “When was the last time you ate a beer?”


#19

When I had Guinness!


#20

I say ‘drink’ but with the first versions of the powder I would say I was chewing it, but still refer to it as a drink (that is food).
