I’m surprised that people are still consuming the powder. Once 2.0 came out I never looked back. About 6 months ago I was waiting on my 2.0 to arrive and decided to mix up a batch of 1.6 that I had laying around. After going through my usual routine (dump the bag into a 48 oz blender and fill it up with water, blend for 30 seconds, add more water, blend for another 30-60 seconds, add cocoa powder, blend some more, chill for about 4 hours) I went to go drink a glass…and nearly vomited at how revolting it tasted compared to my dear 2.0 haha I forgot how much I hated the taste of the powder. I got used to it over time, but never really enjoyed it, I drank it because it was easy and nutritious. As for 2.0, I actually enjoy drinking it, probably because it’s not thick/gritty and doesn’t have that odd sour/sweet taste that was always so hard to describe.
My biggest problem with the powder was to remember to consume the whole pitcher within 3 days. I think I have PTSD from drinking rancid Soylent haha (fridge was around 50 degrees F for some reason and the Soylent curdled after about 36-48 hours, and when it touched my tongue it was a thick, sour mass, the taste wouldn;t leave my mouth for hours) so after that experience I would throw the batch out if I couldn’t remember how long it had been since I made it. With 2.0 there is no such problem since I normally kill a bottle in anywhere from 1-10 minutes haha. Also 2.0 is a hell of a lot more portable and storable.
