Got a shipment of the new bottles, and the taste and consistency seems off (not mention almost impossible to open). I’ve been drinking 1-2 Soylent a day for about 6 months, and after one from this case I felt horrible, so I didn’t drink another and contacted the company. They replaced my case with another, but it’s from the same lot, just later in the day.
In the second case, there is a very powdery aftertaste that lingers in my mouth and clings to the inside of the bottle, it’s much thinner in consistency than before, plus the flavor seems very artificial. I added some heavy cream (about 1 tablespoon) and that fixed the consistency and almost fixed the flavor. I also noticed some black specks, which might be oxidized product, in the threading on the bottle (under where cap was).
Again, I reported the issue, so they sent yet another case of Soylent Cacao out. Guess what? It’s the original bottles! I want to order more, but I hate the new bottles (need a device to open them which makes them inconvenient on-the-go), and I don’t want the gritty version of Cacao with the black spots. Any advice to save me from a replacement loop like this last time?
