Yeah, I've decided to leave my 9 to 5 job to start living off of my passion 5 years ago and I've been a good notch under the poverty line ever since.
It's a personal choice and there is nobody to blame for how poor I am.
I've dreamed of a ready to drink meal, even a meal-in-a-pill, ever since I've been a teenager. (I'm 36).
When I saw the Soylent kickstarter, I've immediately back it up.
And then followed by the wait, and the multiple delays.
And that was all fine.
Then, the Canadian release.
Most.Anticipated Delivery. Ever.
No price difference for us? I'm very OK with that.
You don't charge for delivery? I love you Soylent.
And I've spread the love a lot ever since.
I've converted many of my friends and keep doing so all the time.
A slight increase in price to balance out the inflation and such, sure, a few cents per bottle makes sense.
Pricier new flavors, sure, a bit more expensive than it makes sense for me, but I don't know the cost of production for such a change, so maybe it makes sense.
But, a much bigger jump in price like that, it doesn't make sense.
The price was fine since it's launch, how can you justify that change?
And without any prior notice.
Just an email saying "price hike effective immediately"
No time to tell our friends who are unsure to get a subscription before it changes.
So yeah, that commercial shift is far from the kickstarter moto "Cheaper product when we mass produce"
Talking about 2.0 here, not the powder of course.
Yes, I'm salty about this even if I keep my subscription at the normal price.
Also, I've received messages from 2 different friends about this change as one purchased after the price hike and the other wanted to reactive his cocoa flavored subscription after ordering one pack to try it out.
