Soylent 1.5 6mo old on arival


#1

I just received four weeks worth of Soylent and I noticed that it says it expires on 4/16 which is about 6mo from now. I looked closer at the label with the barcode on the side of each week’s box and it says it was packaged on 4/24/15 which is about 6mo ago.

I was wondering if this is what everyone is seeing or if it’s just when shipping out of PA?

I’m guessing that before they started to ship 2.0 they stock piled a lot of 1.5, but half the shelf life gone by the time you get the product seems strange.

That sounds odd.
Wasn’t soylent still in 1.4 around that time?


#3

This sounds more like new product in old packaging. 1.5 hasn’t been out for 6 months. Has it???


#4

Hmm made me look at some of my old boxes.

Received expire sticker on the box
6/25/15 4/16
7/22/15 5/16
8/22/15 4/16
9/30/15 5/16
10/23/15 4/16

ya I have some use for old boxes :wink:

I believe all my shipments come from BLOOMINGTON, CA

My latest was L5104 exp 4/16.
Last month’s was L5110 exp 4/16
Both shipped from Bloomington.

For the public yes. They probably did produce 1.5 packages for beta testing around that time.


#7

My 1.5 (ordered end of September this year) has a label saying it expires 4/16 too.


#8

Hmm, sounds like they have some excess 1.5 stock since 2.0 starting selling like hotcakes.

I would be willing to buy Soylent with a six-month expiration – but RL would need to adjust the price. Obviously a reduced expiration period reduces the value.
