They came!! My Soy Route items finally came. I just returned from a vacation today so I'm not sure exactly when they arrived.
The boxes are marked as being from Trish at Soylent. Here's how the "mystery flavor" was packaged:
Inside the Pringles container was a ziplock bag containing a plain, normal-looking Soylent bottle:
There are nutrition facts and ingredients on a sticker on the back:
Inside, the color is pretty similar to Original drink, with perhaps just a little more hint of ivory or yellow:
The smell gives away quickly what it's going to taste like. It smells just like Strawberry Nesquik. And sure enough, it tastes like strawberry. I love it! It's quite sweet, but within an acceptable range like Cacao, not overpoweringly sweet like Nectar. The strawberry flavor is distinct but not overwhelming. Definitely reminds me of Nesquik. I think this strawberry flavor could probably be described as very "artificial" but I don't mind that. To my taste, the mystery flavor is delicious and I would be happy to buy it by the boxful if Soylent adds it to the regular product line.
I also ordered the beef flavor kit. Here's how it was packaged:
Inside the bag is a pack of 1.8 and a canister of beef powder:
Here's the nutrition facts and instructions for the beef flavoring:
I haven't tried mixing up the beef yet, but from sampling just a taste on my finger it seems reminiscent of beef bouillon. I'll report back once I've mixed it with some Soylent!
