Hi, I’ve been very interested in this product for a while now but it has become obvious to me that I will never actually buy it due to its crazy price, and by crazy price I’m not exaggerating, here are the expenses for 2 people in January of this year when the price of heating is 120% higher. This includes all the living expenses except food: water, electricity, TV, cable, internet, phone, heating and garbage.
1781.70kn=$318 US dollars, that’s for two people, for the most expensive month in the year due to winter.
So now you see how spending $255 for one person is just unthinkable for me or for anyone in any neighboring country, and rich people would not buy it too because they have their maids who do their cooking for them.
Anyway, now that you see how Soylent is totally not viable for most of the world let’s get down to business.
There are basically two large shops with food substitutes like this in my country, here and here. As you can see, every single product they have is of US origin, and every one has labels in English so it will be very easy for you to tell which ones should I combine.
I don’t have any experience/knowledge in this area so I was thinking you could take a look at those lists of products and just post a link to it.
The overall cost per month should not exceed 450kn($80), $1=5.6kn.
Or you could just tell me that this is not possible for that money with these products.
Basically, Soylent needs to cost around $80-90 for anyone to take it as a serious alternative. Rich people would never buy it anyway so not sure what is the market for it with its current price.
