So as topic head notes, I hated 1.4… which is the first version of soylent where they got rid of the artificial vanilla flavoring. They claimed it was neutral… but it had a horrible, weird sweet after taste (Not good sweet). It triggered my gag reflex. I couldn’t stand it. I ended up cancelling my subscription and selling the rest of the 1.4 I had left.
I hesitated on 1.5 and never bought it. But now with 2.0 with the bottles, I bought one box to try it out.
Good news is that it’s not bad. It’s much more creamy than it ever was and very neutral tasting. It has a slight hint of an oat flavor aftertaste. The flavor isn’t as good as it was with the vanilla flavoring… but I’m fine with that.
If you quit after 1.4… I say give it a try again. The bottles themselves are a huge step up IMO. Much easier to portion and keep track of calorie count, which is a big plus. And just the fact you can stick the box in your fridge and grab 1 bottle at a time is really great.
