I’ve been off the Soylent train for awhile and finally came back on late April. The appeal of a “pre-mixed” Soylent got me curious to try and so far… I don’t mind it.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t like the powder very much because I had a difficult time measuring things out with the legacy scoop. My boyfriend did help me out on figuring out how much powder to add into my Blender bottle and such, but I have yet to really try out the 1.5 batch.
Comparing prices, the powder is “cheaper” by maybe .50 cents versus the bottle- which is understandable because IT’S PRE-MIXED AND READY TO DRINK!!
Whenever I finish a bottle though, I just don’t like the thought of tossing it into the recycling bin. It’s still a good bottle and it almost feels like a waste to even recycle it! Oh the irony…
So I guess I’m stuck at this point of choosing between convenience and cost-affectiveness?
Are there any working folks who are generally in a rush who find the bottle more appeasing or more of a hassle?
The 1.5 does allow you to measure your own calories too and control your intake to the way you want… But 2.0 gives you 400 kcal and that’s it. No fuss, no muss. One is slightly pricier than the other, but on the penny pinching end if you don’t buy reg food at all…
AUGH. I’m torn here. I know both versions have their ups and downs, but I want to just stick to one version instead of investing in both.
