No more foil seal


#1

The foil seal has been removed for both Coffiest and 2.0 going forward.

How does this make you feel?

 
Edit: Image of redesigned lid that has a barrier (blue ring in image) at the top to create a seal when lid is tightened:

#2

If true then I will be switching back to 1.6 Powder. I like my foil.

#4

I really don’t want more mold, or more threads full of people complaining about mold.


#5

Apparently there were production/bottle changes made to prevent mold going forward?


#6

I am unhappy about that. what I have been doing is thumbnail the plastic wrapper to avoid tearing. peel the foil a bit, replace cap and shake. Remove foil, enjoy the soylent on it and throw away. Rinse the bottle (cap clean still) and recycle em.

No more foilsoylent enjoyment!


#7

Some people :blush: said they could taste the glue from the foil. This would eliminate that “problem.”

If they solved the mold problem, then I am glad to eliminate the foil.


#8

Is that Red Reddington?


#9

So long as the risk of mold has in fact been taken care of otherwise, I am pleased with this. The foil was not a big deal but it is mildly annoying.


#10

If it’s less work to open while still maintaining a solid seal, then i don’t see it as anything but a win.

And i’m willing to give them the benefit of the doubt until proved otherwise.

Presumably, this creates a tighter, waterproof seal around the lid that doesn’t necessitate the foil any longer.


#12

I’ll no longer be able to say “curses, foiled again” when I open a bottle, so I’ll have to find another way to amuse myself.


#13

Awesome, it’s about time! That stoopid foil was annoying. Now if they could just lose the shrink wrap around the lid it’ll be perfect.


#14

The foil seal and I are bitter enemies. Unless I remove it surgically, there’s always stringy adhesive left behind. As long as the mold problem is no longer, good riddance, I say.


#15

Are the perforations better? Yours came off very cleanly.


#16


#17

Great, I noticed after my first couple soylents that the adhesive would stay on the bottle and mix with your drink. Who really cares about a foil lid IF they have solved the mold problem. What justifications could you have for wanting the foil lid?


#18

Thank goodness. Neither the mold nor the glue tasted very good. And I definitely wasn’t going to recommend Soylent to anybody while either remained an issue.


#19

I drink Soylent the most when I’m on long car trips, so I’m pleased. This will be easier to open while driving. Not that it’s entirely safe, but I do it at red traffic lights.


#20

I’m happy to see the foil gone. That’s because I’m lazy. I want to just pop the cap and start drinking.
