Liquid vs Powder convert


#1

I didn’t like 2.0 when I first tried it, so I’ve been stalwart about sticking with the powder until I couldn’t get it anymore. So I caved and got a box each of 2.0 and Coffiest to tide me over until the powder was available again, and I have to say I’ve gotten used to it. Now that 1.7 is available, I don’t think I’ll go back to the powder. I really like not having to wash my blender and pitcher several times a week, and I don’t miss the general mess of dealing with the powder. For the record, my order of preference for the powder versions that I had was: 1.4, 1.6, 1.5, 1.3. Generally the opposite of most people.

Blender? Bro - your doing it wrong!:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I’m with you on that. For ~$21/month more than the cost of 1.7, I can get 2.0 and not have to deal with cleaning/mixing a pitcher every couple of days.

The evil plan worked…


#5

For me it would be more like $123/mo… mixing the powder isn’t that much more work than dealing with all those boxes and bottles…


#6

What’s evil about it?


#7

Oh, I donno…

Ive been buying 2.0 for the last few months but after reading about the updates to 1.7 I would predict I’m switching back. The money I save would be better spent on all the supplementary chemicals that I need (prefer to take rather) with soylent.

Plus it’s nice to be able to ride my bike two towns over and only need to add a few pounds of weight to the bags.

Care to detail these?


#10

Sure just message me


#11

Christ, you environmentalists are a real piece of work.


#12

I’m not an environmentalist, I would throw my empty 2.0 bottle in the vat of floating debris - then feel about about it later.


#13

If I was a utilitarian, I could argue the bad/evilness of bottles.


#14

Well, the conspiracy to delay powder deliveries long enough to convince customers to stay on 2.0 even after the powder becomes available, thereby moving customers to a more profitable product who would have otherwise been unlikely to switch, of course.


#15

You ought to meet us anti-environmentalists. We’ll make your veins pop out your forehead.


#16

Yep, I fell right into their trap.


#17

But is 2.0 a more profitable product?

Shipping cost and their abiliy to charge whatever they want for the powder, me thinks profit is very close.


#18

They don’t tell us mere mortals such things. Though I expect it is, even if it weren’t now it would be when profits skyrocket with more flavoring options.


#19

Especially after they increased the price of 2.0.


#20

I recycle the bottles and lids… it was the bars and bags of 1.6 (powder and all) that went to the landfill. I’m learning towards sticking with the bottles too for a while. I’m a bit gun shy still after a rather violent night of sudden stomach emptying.
