I got one month in the mail yesterday courtesy of Ebay and @Jeff_Ex . Everything I’ve seen suggests that you mix some up and let it mellow in the refrigerator overnight, so of course I did exactly the opposite despite the fact that I had just overindulged on Mexican food. I’ll be honest, it was not love at first taste.
Everyone seems to have difficulty nailing down the taste, and for me the closest I’ve come is these Atkins diet bars. Not a great start.
I’ve started the day on a few cups of Soylent and I am glad to report that the taste has improved considerably, though I wouldn’t mistake it for tasty. I’m hoping the taste continues to improve as I grow accustomed to it. There is certainly something to be said for knowing what to expect (ever had coke that you thought was coffee or vice versa?), so I’m excited to see whether the trend continues or if it plateaus. It will also be interesting to see if my body is able to associate Soylent with rich nutrition and adjust my tastes accordingly.
I’d be interested to hear from @vanclute and others whether the taste has continued to improve and how long that trend lasts. Otherwise so far, so good.
