I finally got around to cracking into my most recent shipment of Soylent (new roommate has been going out to eat a TON so I hadn’t had a chance to have much before). My last shipment was extremely smooth and creamy, and had very little soylent-y taste, my first shipment was about average. However, this shipment, I opened the first box, grabbed a bag, and once I opened it I could immediately smell a really strong “soylent” smell. I hoped that it would be made better mixed, but it didn’t help. I hoped chilling it would make it lesser, it helped a little, but the taste was still really strong for me. I remembered the thread from the Box Variation thread, so I tried a bag from a different box but to no avail.
With all of that said, if anyone doesn’t mind the taste of 1.5 much I’m willing to pawn off my months supply of Soylent for 1/3rd price + shipping or 1/2 price, depending on shipping (I’ll tell you when I find out how much it would cost to ship to where you are and you can reconsider then if you want). Further, I’ll send you a bag to test for just the price of shipping if you’re worried you wouldn’t like it. I’ll even cut that test bag’s price from the overall if you decide to buy the rest.
Basically I want to get rid of all of this and recoup a little of the money since otherwise it’s just going to sit in my basement as emergency food for a couple years before it probably gets thrown away. I’m thinking I’ll be moving to try 2.0 and probably sticking with that unless a new formula comes out or the powder seems to become much more consistent.
