I received a box of 1.4 and haven’t been enjoying this at all. The texture is sort of slimy and thick, like ice cream mix that is semi-frozen. Compared to the neutral flavor of 1.3 (that frankly, I looked forward to every morning) I have to choke down unflavored 1.4. When I first drank 1.4, it was really sweet and I wasn’t happy. Now with a my usual portion (1/3rd of the starter pitcher) I put two shakes of cinnamon to make it barely more palatable.
I made some tonight and put some strawberries in and blended it up and the taste was oddly savory, like the strawberries somehow cancelled out the sweetness and made the Soylent taste salty.
A bit of advice - now that Soylent has tens of thousands (if not more) customers and I’m guessing millions of meals shipped, Rosa Labs should really concentrate on incremental changes to maintain continuity in the experience. Honestly, when I’m done with these boxes of 1.4, I’m waiting until 1.5 and then reading the feedback. For someone who committed to the experience of 1.3, 1.4 is an entirely new product and not one for which I would have committed to.
