After first hearing of Soylent from Rob Rhinehart on "The Colbert Report" over a year ago, I've now had 3 days with my Soylent one-time order(Jul. 15, 2015). Just mixed the 3rd pouch of 7. I'm quite satisfied with it. I had my tonsils out 10 days ago, and this is one of the easiest things I've swallowed. I use a blender, and this last time, I added ice and cold water to speed up the chilling process. The last couple times, I added 1 bottle of Ensure Complete vanilla, which, among other things, makes it a bit sweeter (I'm trying to speed up my tissue re-building). EDIT: "I just forgot to mention 2 other quick things about my experience: 1.) I didn't have a measuring scoop (this is v1.5) and I presume it wasn't included in my starter kit because the new scoop design is still in the works. 2.) I at first was concerned just a bit about my pouch's "zip-lock" not being sealed, but I realized none of them are, as you are only meant to re-seal it after you break the initial seal, so no worries there (shredded cheeses, popping corn, etc. in the grocery stores sometimes come with the ziplock zealed as well). Powder may settle during shipping to one side of the bag or the other. Bottom line, though, I'm pleased with the order"
I would only add that my blender is not quite big enough to hold all the water and Soylent the pitcher can hold, so I add the whole pouch and as much water as I can to the blender & blend, transfer to the pitcher, and fill the rest of the way up with more water, and shake as needed.
PS: I'm a big fan of this no-drip spout on the pitcher. Also pleased with the satiating amount of fat and oat flour/fiber. Soylent is not too sweet, and my brother (after tasting it) was surprised there was sucralose in it at all. I knew, because it was the last ingredient. It's totally not a flavor you'd get tired of quickly.
Thanks for reading,
(PPS: Any of ya'll have thoughts of Soylent as a doomsday prepper/post-apocalyptic/survival food? I dunno if it's possible to order quite so much of it at one time, plus, the expiration dates on mine were only good a year out.) Thanks again for reading!
