I’ve been looking forward to soylent for a while. One of the first things I did when Soylent was finally released was to check its price. I wasn’t very encouraged.
It’s borderline cost effective. I was not only hoping for convenience, but also some saving. $4 per meal (or $10 per day) is about equal or more than I spend currently on real food.
I’m located outside of USA, so when soylent is available for international buyers, then it’s going to cost even more. With shipping, customs, value-added-tax, it’s going to cost 60% more, so $16 per day, or $6,4 per meal. So this isn’t very feasible to me cost-wise.
Will the price decrease?
